Walk-In Tub Therapeutic Features
Therapeutic Features of the Safe Step Walk-In Tub
Hydro-Jet Water Therapy
Hydro-Jet Water Therapy includes 10 built-in Hydro-Jets that are strategically placed on the tub to target those tight, aching areas that could use a little soothing. The fully adjustable jets operate at variable intensities and speeds to help release your tension and soothe your aches and pains. You can also focus the massaging water jets to provide a soothing, comforting massage to specific areas, such as legs, feet and back – or legs and feet only.
MicroSoothe Air Therapy System
When you activate our new MicroSoothe Air Therapy System, millions of tiny, oxygen-enriched bubbles begin circulating through your tub, turning your bath into a spa-like experience. Developed to stimulate and nourish your skin, these microbubbles blanket your entire body and deliver a warm, gentle massage as they burst against you. These negatively charged bubbles are so small, they can actually penetrate pores to exfoliate the skin, removing dirt and toxins, and make your skin feel ultra-soft and silky. You will feel like you are being enveloped in a milky, white cloud—a truly rejuvenating experience.
Lower Back & Seat Heating System
Our surface-mounted Heating System gently warms your tub’s seat and back for added comfort. It provides fast pre-heating in just 2-3 minutes, helping to take that “cold edge” off the seat as your tub fills with water. Reaching full heat in just 7-8 minutes, the system maintains a comfortable temperature as you bathe, and also keeps you warm as you’re waiting for water to drain. And a built-in thermal cut-off prompts the system to self-extinguish when subjected to excessive heat, so you’re always protected.
Dual Hydrotherapy Massage System
The Dual Hydrotherapy Massage System combines whirlpools and air massage. This provides therapeutic benefits that help soothe aching muscles and joints and release body tension. Our Dual Hydrotherapy can provide symptomatic relief for a number of conditions, including:
- Balance Challenges
- Chest Congestion
- Joint, Muscle, and Nerve Concerns
- Lower Back Pain
- Poor Circulation
- Varicose Veins
Research suggests that color (from the Greek “chromo”) can play a large part in your mood, thoughts and ability to relax. Chromotherapy has been shown to benefit your mental well-being by reducing anxiety and stress (a component of high blood pressure,) and helping you relax. That’s why chromotherapy is a standard feature of every Safe Step Walk-In Tub. It employs variable colors of light within the tub to help soothe your stress and aches.
For thousands of years, people have known about the role our sense of smell plays in our thoughts and emotions. Holistic practitioners tell us that smell plays a key role in relaxation, as well as emotional and physical healing. Safe Step Walk-In Tubs uses this holistic approach and features Aromatherapy, where pellets of essential plant oils dissolve and emit pleasant, relaxing aromas.
Personal Hygiene Therapy
When it comes to personal hygiene, we all have those “hard to reach” areas. As we get older, it seems like they get harder to reach! Safe Step’s Personal Hygiene Therapy System and bidet is a specifically positioned water jet in the seat of the tub. It offers you unsurpassed comfort, convenience and safety. Equally important, it delivers a thorough cleansing.
Of course, maintaining the cleanliness of the water in the tub is a primary concern. So every Safe Step Walk-In Tub features our Safe Water™ Ozone Cleaning System standard. The system constantly purifies the water through the jets, preventing bacteria from entering the tub. This assures you of a safe, sanitary bathing experience every time!
