Another innovative product for seniors is the Foldaway Wheelchair Shower. It is a completely self-contained portable shower stall that can be used anywhere there is access to warm water, a drain and a 110V outlet, such as a kitchen, laundry room or bathroom for which the regular bathing facility is inaccessible. The portable shower can be set up in less than 5 minutes out of the box, roll in, shower and roll back out. It weighs less than 40 pounds and folds to 6 inches flat for easy storage.

Larry Weinstein, AARP’s National Livable Homes Consultant, states that this is the first truly new and exciting bathing product for seniors. It allows seniors who rent, who live with family or want to travel the availability of a shower.
