SB2 Tubbuddy


The bath transfer system from ShowerBuddy is designed to allow a user to be safely transferred by a caregiver over a bathtub to shower without costly bathroom remodeling. The TubBuddy eliminates unnecessary transfers between toileting and bathing, making it comfortable for both the user and carer, while reducing costs and contributing to good user hygiene.

The TubBuddy transfer system will turn your existing bath tub into an accessible bathroom that allows you to enjoy showering again without the excessive cost, delay and stress of a full bathroom remodel.

The TubBuddy consists of a comfortable chair and elevated bridge, which will allow users to clear most regular bathtub sides. Additionally it's also a full-featured raised toilet chair, which eliminates extra transfer between toilet and showering.

This Product is Tested to NZ/AU Standards

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.
