Wave Bath Chair Blue

SKU: Z211-1
Price: $560

Hygiene and health go together.

When we make bathing easier, our clients are healthier. The all new Wave system has been thoroughly reimagined to improve bathing and showering – for the client and for the caregiver. Responding to requests from therapists and caregivers, we widened these new bath chairs to accommodate larger clients. And to protect skin integrity we added generous padding under soft knit fabric. As well as mounting the bath chair on a tub stand or rolling shower stand we’ve added an ingenious new tub transfer base (available in summer 2017) to completely change the way you transfer and bathe large clients. There’s nothing like it.



A complete bathing system with integrated transfer solution 

The system starts with the chair itself, available in small, medium and large. If you need to raise the chair in the tub (to save your back), get the tub stand. If you need it at standing height for the shower, get the shower stand. To transfer a large or heavy user for an over-the-tub shower use the back-saving rotating transfer base. With its ingenious slide-rotate action you can place your client on the bath chair (even with a lift, if necessary) and move it over the tub without strain. (Available in Summer 2017)


We asked clinicians and parents what they wanted in a new bath chair. Their top request? More width. Well, you got it. Plus better padding for sensitive skin.


Wider and more comfortable than ever

Before our designers started redesigning the Wave, they asked therapists and providers what they wanted. More width was the number one request. Our large is 171/2” wide and it will accommodate adults up to 6’2” and 250lbs. The medium and small are 15” wide. Along with a wider chair, our designers added padding to make it even more comfortable and gentle on sensitive skin.


Easy to adjust

The Wave is truly tool free, not only for initial assembly but also for all adjustments, many while in use. Adjust the backrest angle with one hand which allows the caregiver to keep the other hand on the client for safety and reassurance. Adjust the angle of the seat by releasing the two triggers underneath. Adjust calf rest independently by pushing the gray buttons and rotating up or down. Adjust the angle and height of the chair by pulling out and pivoting the legs up or down.


Positions like no other bath chair

The backrest adjusts from flat to 75° in 6 increments. The seat adjusts from flat to 75° in 6 increments. The calf rest adjusts separately from the seat in 15° increments – making it possible to make it flat or adjust it to 90°, or an angle in between. The Wave is the only bath chair with separate seat and calf rest adjustments. That means you can comfortably position the client with just the right hip and leg angle.


More seat heights using the base. For an intermediate seat height, rotate rear legs up flat and front facing legs down. To get the chair low in the tub, rotate both front and back legs straight out.


Thoughtful details

Conversion kits are the smart solution for growing children. For a fraction of the cost you can convert a small to a medium bath chair. We’ll send you a new larger fabric cover, back and seat frames and chest strap with instructions on how to remove the old and install the new parts on your existing base.


The Wave has a washable fabric cover that is easily removed for cleaning.


Bathing equipment for people with disabilities tends to be big and bulky, taking up far too much space in bathrooms that are shared by everyone in the family. Often this means that families are forced to take shortcuts or skimp on hygiene care for their loved ones with special needs. And poor hygiene often results in poor health. Rifton designed the bath chair to fold flat and hang on the wall out of the way. Rifton’s folding storable tub transfer base makes it possible for everyone in the family to use the tub. When you are finished just remove the base from the tub, fold the legs, and hang it on the wall hook provided.


Tub Stand

The tub stand can be used with all three chair sizes and raises the chair either 5.5” or 11.5” allowing safer transfers and caregiver assistance during bathing. All adjustments are tool free.


The Rifton Wave on the tub stand. Both stand and chair have slip-resistant feet for stability in the tub. The tub stand legs also fold flat for storage. Quick-release locks allow bath chair to be attached or removed from the tub stand without using tools.


Shower Stand 

The shower stand allows you to roll your client into the shower stall at a height that enables better cleaning – and saves your back. It can be used with any of the three chair sizes and has rugged, smooth rolling, locking 4" casters. Quick-release locks on the stand allow easy attachment and removal of chair.

Tub transfer base

The ingenious tub transfer base is ideal for the large or heavy user who needs an over-the-tub shower. It’s much more gentle on your back, too!


With the tub transfer base you start in the position farthest out of the tub and lower the client into the chair. Then you roll back over the tub and set the brakes.


As the upper portion with the bath chair is rotated 90° it moves approximately one foot back over the tub in one smooth motion.


Note: Take care to select the direction of the pivot, clockwise or counterclockwise, at the time of purchase.


The tub transfer base will fit most bath tubs up to 20" high by adjusting the leg length to clear the edge of the tub.


With the Rifton tub transfer base you can perform healthy transfers – either manually or with a mechanical lift – without crowding your bathroom with permanently mounted equipment.


Rifton’s folding, storable tub transfer base makes it possible for everyone in the family to still use the tub.


When you are finished just remove the base from the tub, fold the legs...and hang it on the Rifton wall hook provided.
