SB1 ShowerBuddy

Reduce falls, increase quality of life. 

Introducing the SB1 ShowerBuddy - a revolutionary solution that allows individuals with mobility needs to safely and easily transfer into step-in showers without having to make any changes to their existing bathroom fixtures.

The SB1 ShowerBuddy offers a comprehensive solution with a rolling commode, bridge, and shower insert that interlock securely to ensure shower safety. This system allows the user to comfortably enter the shower without stepping over the threshold, reducing the risk of falls. When not in use, the system can be easily removed and rolled away for convenience.

Perfect for family members or caregivers, the SB1 makes shower time a breeze by removing the need for heavy lifting. It can also be used as a stand-alone commode, or can roll over most NZ toilets for convenience

What comes with a Showerbuddy?

Safety Belts

Most Showerbuddies include at least one safety belt. The SB1, SB2, SB2T, and SB3T systems include both a lap and a chest belt.

Commode Pan

The Showerbuddy range comes equipped with a removable commode bucket and lid system that enables bedside or away from bathroom use discreetly and cleanly.

Frame Lifetime Warranty

The Showerbuddy’s frame is designed to provide long term support and reliability to its user. From the easy-clean powder coat finish to the durable, non rusting frame made from hardened aluminium, there’s little of the market that’s up to the standard of a Showerbuddy bathroom and commode chair.
