Definition of terms
Bathlifts or bathtublifts are available in different versions on the market:

- inflatable seat cushion
- belt bath lift (like ours)
Belt bath lift
Belt bath lifts are constructed for the installation on a wall. With a belt bath lift, a person, who has taken place on a seating belt, is lowered down to the bottom of the tub and raised up again mechanically.

The belt holder is the counterpart of the bathlift. It is where the seating belt is fixed before starting the bathing and can afterwards be loosened again. Belt holders are available for all bathlifts in three versions: for floor installation, wall installation or installation at the side of the bathtub. You get a good overview when you download and/or print a *pdf document showing a few simple examples from real life. Overview beltholders and fixations: Beltholder
The seating belt is tightened by the motor of the lift so that you can sit down safely. This principle of a seating belt lift (belt bath lift) distinguishes this kind of lifts from all other lift types. The durable belt made from PVCC cloth is loadable with up to 1500 kg and is especially made for our bathlift. The belt in our lift is replacable.
There is nothing more relaxing than a soothing bath in your own bathtub. Many elder or mobility restricted people can't benefit from that, as they can't get in and out of the tub without external help.
A bathlift like those from our house make it possible to take a joyful bath.

Functional principle of a bathlift
Short description of how to bathe:
The seating belt is fed out from the basic device by touching the button and attached to the mounting bar.
The touch of the button "up" tightens the belt so that you can sit down comfortably.
Now you can place down yourself. With the touch of the button "down" on the device or on the remote control, the seating belt lowers you gently to the bottom of the tub. The seating belt is now below you and you barely notice it.
The joy of bathing can start!
When you have finished your bath, touch the button "up" and you will be raised up. You can stop the seating belt in every position by releasing the button. Now you can get out of the tub comfortably and secure. After use, you can feed the seating belt back into the basic device. The tub is then free and can be used by other family members.
