Powered Bathtub Lift

Bellavita Bathlift

Simple Bathlift for a simply great bath

This bathtub lift is a great alternative to installing a walk-in bathtub, which I never recommend. In my experience, maintenance of walk-in tubs is difficult and costly.

This bathlift works well for bathtubs up to 18.8" deep. It has side flaps that allow the user to slide transfer safely and easily onto the lift. The bathlift automatically reclines 50-degrees at it's lowest position; this cannot be changed. The recline can make this bathlift difficult to use in small bathtubs or for people over 6' tall because it reduces the leg room in the bathtub.

This bathlift has a plastic seat but has padded seat covers available as an accessory. I highly recommend this to increase comfort. 

It takes about 57 seconds to raise and to lower this bathlift. This is good performance for a bathlift - some other models require up to 1 1/2 minutes to raise or lower. 

The bathlift is somewhat lightweight at 20.5 pounds, which is important if the lift will be placed in and taken out of the bathtub on a regular basis.  This lift also has suction cups which increase it's stability but do require bending all the way into the tub to release the suction cups to remove the lift.

The bathlift is rechargeable by simply unplugging the hand control and then plugging it into a small wall charger. The bathlift has a smart battery that will not lower you into the bathtub if there is not enough power to bring the lift back up out of the tub.


  • The lightest bathlift on the market at only 20.5 lbs.
  • This bathlift lowers to 2.3" from the floor of the bathtub.
  • Seat height reaches 18.8" for deeper tubs.
  • The backrest reclines to 50º at its lowest position.
  • Completely tool-free set up makes it easy to install and operate. When not in use, back easily folds down for space-saving storage.
  • Watertight hand control floats.
  • The easy to use quick-charge lithium-ion battery is accommodated in the hand control.
  • Two-piece construction makes the lift easy to assemble/disassemble for transport.
  • Padded seat and backrest provide added comfort.
  • Washable hygienic covers are sold separately.
  • Hygienic cutaway and slimline profile for easy handling.
  • 4 quick-release suction cups for anti-slip bath base.
  • Headrest available as an option.
  • Simplify transfers, positioning and rotating when using your bath lift with a Vitaturn Swivel and Transfer Aid.


This bathlift is best for people who:

  • Have mobility problems and have difficulty getting into the bathtub. The bathlift can be used for sliding transfer and the flaps will support the person's weight.
  • Have difficulty standing to get out of the bathtub.
  • Are using a wheelchair to access the bathroom.
  • Suffer from joint pain, lower back pain, or muscle pain, allowing them to soak for pain relief.
  • Weigh less than 300 lbs.

This bathlift is not so good for people who:

  • Have a bathtub that is deeper than 18.8".
  • Share a bathtub on a regular basis. Though it is the lightest model on the market, this bathlift can be a challenge for some people to move in and out of the bathtub.
  • Have long legs or short bathtubs (or both!). This model reclines, which reduces legroom in the bathtub somewhat.
