Can I customise my RAZ shower chair?

No matter how good a product is, it won’t be right for everyone

Every user comes with their own unique situation — with their own set of challenges that need answers and solutions.

And that means the standard approach isn’t always the best.

If you’re an OT looking for a shower chair for your client, you might find you need a little something extra — something more than what comes straight out of the box.

Here’s what you need to know about customising a RAZ shower chair:

 

With a RAZ shower chair, you can change its

  • Height and posture - with built-in adjustments
  • Support and convenience - with extra accessories 
  • Access and comfort - with custom frames and seats 
  • Style (and user motivation) - with custom colours schemes 

 

What comes as standard? 

There’s a lot you can do to customise a RAZ shower chair.

But there’s a lot you can change with the standard model, too. So, before you look into the extra options (and before you spend more than you need to!), it’s worth knowing what you can do with a RAZ chair as standard.

With every RAZ shower chair, you’ll be able to change:

  • The angle and height of the headrest
  • The curve of the backrest material
  • The angle of the backrest
  • The height of the seat
  • And the height of the footrests.

For lots of users, this built-in customisation will be more than enough to find the right fit — to give them a comfortable position and posture and make their everyday routines as easy as possible.

But not everyone has the same needs.

Some people will need more than the standard adjustments. And you might need some customisation to get a shower chair that fits what your client needs.

Here’s what you can do with a RAZ shower chair:

 

1. Add-ons and accessories 

Beyond the standard adjustments, there’s a whole range of extra accessories you can add to a RAZ chair.

You won’t need any special work done, or any tech expertise — which means these accessories are a fast and low-cost way to get the features your client needs for an easier bathroom routine.

So, what extras can you add to a RAZ shower chair?

We’ve got a wide range of accessories for all kinds of needs — from improved arm and back support to reclining backrests and activity work surfaces.

Here are some of our most popular add-ons:

2. Custom frames and seats 

The right accessories can make a huge difference to the daily lives of the people who use shower chairs.

But for some people, a pre-built add-on isn’t enough.

(Everybody’s different — and so is every body!)

So, if you’re looking for a specific setup — and you can’t find the right fit with a standard shower chair — you might need some deeper customisation.

That’s where our teams at Wealden Rehab can help:

We’re not just suppliers of accessible equipment. We work closely with occupational therapists and prescribers to solve problems for their clients — and that includes custom designs and adaptations of the equipment they need.

Our engineers can adapt and design a custom shower chair that’s built specifically for what your client needs, including:

  • Custom backrest angles — to match the comfortable wheelchair they already use
  • Adapting shower chairs to fit specific toilets — either backwards or forwards
  • Fitting different-sized wheels — to find the right seat height for standing transfers
  • Reshaping the seat — for a comfortable fit to match their needs
  • Creating custom armrests — to give them better support when standing.

Those are just a few of the most common requests we get from OTs and their clients.

But our teams love a challenge!

So, if you’re looking for something truly bespoke, we’d love to hear about it in one of our free assessments.

3. Custom colour schemes

With so much focus on practicality and function, it’s easy to forget about one important aspect:

Daily routines are personal — and your client’s equipment should be, too.

Some OTs and carers want to make sure the home doesn’t feel like a clinical environment. Some users need a little extra motivation to use the support tools they need.

Whatever the reason, we know from experience that the right colours make a huge difference to the people using the equipment — especially when you’re caring for a younger person.

So, as well as choosing the right add-ons and customising the structure, we can also help you by:

  • Working with you and your client to learn their favourite colours and shades — or the ones that inspire and motivate them
  • Powder-coating the frame with their favourite colour
  • Changing the smaller components to match the new colour scheme they choose.

Working with someone who needs something extra?

We’ve got a huge range of RAZ shower chairs for all kinds of users — and over 30 accessories to add new features and comfort.

But for users who need something more, our teams are ready to create what your clients need.

We work directly with OTs and prescribers to give their clients the best possible setup for their specific needs — with our own dedicated workshop that designs, configures, and customises equipment like the RAZ shower chair.
