---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To design a prototype of a barrier free bathtub for older adults or people with balance, lower extremity or mobility disabilities. The Barrier Free Bathtub has collapsible side walls to facilitate entry and exit of the tub. When entering the bath, the user sits down like sitting on a bed then moves his or her legs into the bathtub. The user then moves a switch located adjacent to the faucets to raise the tub walls. Once the walls are in place, the tub can be filled and the uses bathes. Before exiting the tub, the water must be drained, and then the side walls can be lowered with the switch until they are flush with the tub's base, at which point the user exits the bathtub. Barrier-free Bathing is a 2012 iF Design Award: concept design entry. TITLE: Barrier-free Bathing. WEBSITE: Yanko Design. REF: http://www.yankodesign.com/2013/06/06/barrier-free-bathing.
