Have you ever thought about putting a door on your tub? Well, they exist. That is right. It is called a walk in bathtub. The sides are much higher than your conventional tub, and the door in the side is obviously water tight, but they work along the same premise as a regular tub.
Walk in bathtubs are generally designed with those in mind who cannot access a traditional tub. Therefore, the walk in tub has a tiny little lip to get over in order to get into the tub itself, rather than the whole wall of the tub. Also in the design of the walk in tubs is an actual lip upon which the bather can sit. It is intended for those wheel chair bound to experience the relaxation and joy of an actual bath.
Most walk in bathtub also have the added bonus of having whirlpool jets in them as well, adding a therapeutic aspect to the already numerous benefits of the pool. The depth of the walk in bathtub is designed so a person sitting upon the seat within the tub will be virtually fully submerged, making it better than a traditional bath as there is more water, making it easier to stay down low, and you do not have to scrunch up in your short little tub, with your knees poking up out of the water, just so you can keep the important bits submerged.
Should you have the need, a walk in bathtub is not just for simple luxury, but can provide multiple layers of relaxation and therapy that are good and healthy to anyone partaking in the use of the walk in bathtub.
