Universal Design Specialists Now Featuring Unique ADL Spa Sliding Door Handicap Tub


Universal Design Specialists now offering the unique Best Bath Systems ADL Spa handicap tub on their e-commerce website at

SONOMA, CA, USA, April 30, 2015 / -- Universal Design Specialists announced that they are now offering the unique Best Bath Systems ADL Spa handicap tub in their CA showroom and on their e-commerce website at This unique sliding door handicap bathtub is US Made in Best Bath’s Idaho factory and enables users to enter and exit the full size bathing zone from a sitting position rather stepping over the typical side wall of a conventional tub. Unlike other walk in tubs for elderly this creative design eliminates the need of stepping over any curb at all because the user sits at the entry of the tub and simply slides into it.

Most handicap accessible bathtubs also necessitate that the user step away from the in-swing door in order to close the door which in itself can be a difficult task to accomplish for larger bathers and those with reduced mobility. ADL Spa handicap bathtubs also eliminate the difficult task of getting up from a floor height sitting or reclining position as one exits the tub at a sitting height much like getting out of bed.

Most anyone who can slide into bed can access these full size handicap tubs. Barrier free handicap walk in bathtubs are typically smaller than conventional tubs and require that users sit on a built in seat to bathe. The ADL Spa handicap accessible bathtub allows the user to recline fully as a result of its large 60” x 36” x 21” size. Another aspect of this unique design allows easy entry to disabled users dependent on a wheelchair or mobile lifting systems who might otherwise not be able to benefit from the therapeutic advantages of submerging in warm water. This is possible as the cabinet under the ADL Spa has no floor and allows the extended legs of a Molift smart lift, a Hoyer lift or some other portable lifting device to extend fully under the bathing zone thereby permitting the safe lowering of the person into the bathing well.

A safety harness is also available to assist users unable to support themselves to stay upright in the tub. The tub is available in a range of standard colors as well as custom colors. The cabinet under the unit is available in a choice of stains and finishes or unfinished.
