I know that not everyone needs a bathlift but having seen this for sale locally for over £400 I thought this was a cracking deal.

    It has a battery (see the weight specs), so totally safe ;-)

    Isn't a battery still electricity?

    I have 1 of these and it cost a lot more than this ... excellent price and a must for disabled or elderly to enable them to still enjoy the comfort of a soak in the bath

    Anything that allows someone to stay at home and enjoy basic comforts for longer has to be a good thing.

    Excellent deal.

    In theory if you need one you should be able to get one from your local authority, but unfortunately this isn't possible any more. My uncle needs one, approached his local authority who sent an assessor, agreed he needed one, but they had no money to provide them any more.

    if local authorities brought one from places like this rather local mobility shop they would be able to afford more! :|

    These are useful, however I found that mine (a similar one, from local authority) took up a lot of bath space and made actually bathing a lot more difficult because you can't lie back, or have much room to move around. I'm 31 with arthritis so struggle to get in and out of the bath when I'm flared up with it, and I chose to send mine back and stick to showering, because of the extra hassle with this when bathing.

    Also, if you do get one, make sure you keep the battery charged, it's not good to get stuck half-way lol.

    I absolutely agree with you. Unfortunately many local authorites and NHS / public bodies are tied to contracts with certain suppliers who charge exorbitant prices safe in the knowledge that their contracts prevent their clients shopping around.

    I did query it once, and was told that the supplier has to guarantee like for like replacement for a period of years after supply, hence they pay more. (sounds ridiculous to me).

    My uncle did ask the local authority what the point of sending an assessor out was, if they knew they had no money to provide what he needed, to which they had no answer but offered him a raised toilet seat free ( as some sort of compensation? or perhaps to justify their visit!)

    it reminds me off something from a kids programme that would throw you into gunge!
