AdirMed Ultra Quiet Bath Lift Review
AdriMed Ultra’s bath lift is designed to be easy to use and setup. When unpacking the lift from the box, all the user needs to do is place the lift in the bathtub. The setup is quick and easy, but you’ll want to check the remote to ensure that the battery is fully charged.
The entire unit’s power is supplied through the remote’s battery.
Average battery life is 7 – 12 uses, so you’ll want to recharge the chair weekly if you use the chair often. Simple and easy to use, the remote is waterproof and has two simple buttons that allow the user to lower or raise from the tub.
And getting into the chair is a breeze.
First and foremost, ensure that the suction cups have been applied to the tub to allow for a sturdy base. When the suction cups are used, they allow for a more stable seating experience and add to the overall safety of the chair.
You’ll want to recheck the suction every few weeks to make sure that the chair is firmly in place.
There are two additional anti-slip base features that add to the safety of the chair if the suction cups are not enough to allow the user to feel safe in the chair.
When it comes time to sit on the chair to be lowered into the tub, you can stand in front of the chair and sit on it confidently. You can also sit on the chair and lift your legs into the tub. The seat acts as a Lazy Susan, meaning that it can rotate to allow for easy exit and entrance into the bathtub.
If you cannot safely enter your tub, the seat is a convenient feature – and it’s much safer, too.
You will lose some tub space during installation, but the lift will lower to 2.3,” allowing for partial submersion while keeping the bather safe. You can lower to 18.8″ for even less submersion as required. The back can go as low as 50 degrees, too.
Anyone that has allowed their physical limitations to stop them from taking a bath need this chair in their home.
Common Questions About the AdirMed Ultra Quiet

- Does the bath lift offer transfer aid? Yes. The chair offers a rotating disc to allow for easy entrance and exit.

- The chair swivels to allow for easy entrance and exit from the tub
- Fits in most tubs with ease
- Taller users will be limited by how far they can recline in the chair
Taller persons who will not be able to lay flat in a tub with their legs fully extended normally will find that the lift will not eliminate this problem. The amount of recline provided to the user is limited when the tub is small and the user is tall.
If you’re near 6′ tall, you’ll need to make sure that your tub is large enough to allow you to recline fully.
But for most users, the AdirMed provides the only safe option to lower into a tub and take a bath. Durable and safe, this bath lift is the key to freedom in the bathtub.
