Portable, folding shower station to accommodate a reclining style wheelchair or gurney, manufactured in the U.S. by FAWSsit Showers - Recliner model.
The Recliner model fold away wheelchair shower is designed for individuals who require a care attendant for all bathing support. It is a completely portable, self-contained shower stall, but it is designed for ease of access by the caregiver, and for use with shower/commode style wheelchairs that are fully reclined, or even for gurneys. Because the Recliner model extends up to 78” in length, even persons who may be unconscious can be safely bathed. It is the perfect bathing solution for high quadriplegics, cerebral palsy patients, wounded soldiers awaiting treatment, or even children with disabilities who have become too heavy to be easily lifted into traditional bathtubs.

Portable showers are a very economic alternative to remodeling a bathroom if the costs of remodeling are too high or if a wheelchair accessible shower is needed on a short-term basis. They are great for renters, hospice patients, and individuals with almost any type of permanent or temporary disability for whom showering or bathing is no longer safe or even possible.
The size of the Recliner model is 36” wide by 76” deep, and stands 36” tall. With this unit, the person to be bathed can be rolled into the shower stall in a recliner style shower/commode style of wheelchair, or a gurney. Once inside the shower stall, a front support bar is lowered so that the fourth side of the shower pan can be attached for waste water collection and a front shower curtain may be brought around to ensure water containment all the way around inside the unit. The Recliner wheelchair shower has the added feature of lower height to make care attendant access as easy and effective as possible.
The source of water for the R3000 shower unit can be any standard sink faucet, or even a solar heated water bag. And, there is a pump which pulls the waste water from the drain pan. The drain hose from the pump can go straight to sink drain, or in the case of hazardous materials containment, the waste water hose can go directly into a containment unit. The unit requires a GFI plug protects the pump unit in case of any electrical failure.
While the R3000 is primarily intended for use at home for people with severe disabilities, and who do not want to re-model, the R3000 folds flat to only about 15 inches in depth so it can be easily stored and transported for emergency use as well. Because it weighs approximately 44 pounds, it is light weight for transport.
All FAWSsit portable shower models are shipped fully assembled and include a frame, mounted pump, shower curtain, drain pan, shower head, faucet adapter, mesh storage bags, and hoses.
