Arjo Huntleigh Side Entry/Recline Parker Bath
Patient Lift Compatible w/ Air Spa Massage
This is a top of the line, stand alone assisted bath system from Arjo. It is only 3 yrs old (2007) and ready to use. It does it all and it is in excellent cosmetic and tested working condition. I guarantee it will not be DOA. This is a current model bathing system. I called the manufacturer and the retail price is $15,631.00. Why buy new when you can get the same thing here for less than half the price of new and get the same thing.
It raises, lowers, reclines and has a side entry. The open base allows for it to be used with most patient lifts. The resident sits in a reclined seating postion. The side easily unlocks and lifts out of the way for easy access. There is a hardwired remote to control the height and recline. There is a built in 3 speed air spa with 9 airports for hydro-massage. Comes with steel braided water supply lines and also has a handheld showerhead. According to the manufacturer it only uses 20 gallons of water per use. This is a really nice bath system perfect for any assisted living situation. Additional options available from the manufacturer include cushions, disinfection system and leg holders.

From the manufacturer:
The bathing cycle with a Parker Bath from ARJO is safe, comfortable and dignified for the resident at all stages, and involves no manual lifting, strain or stress for the caregiver. Using this bath saves time and resources, as well as the caregiver's back.
From the moment you start prefilling the bath, you start saving time - and water. The prefill delivers enough water to the footwell to provide a comfortable bath in the reclined position, but an ordinary bath would require far more. The caregiver can use the prefill time to collect and prepare the resident for the bath.
The bath's unique side-entry access allows easy assisted and unassisted transfers. During the transfer, the only physical assistance that may be required is help to position the resident's legs in the warm water of the footwell. Once in the bath the resident has the option of a 3 speed air aeration massage through 9 air ports in the bottom of the tub.
A combination of the handset control, the reclined bath position and height adjustability means the caregiver can always work close to the resident in a comfortable posture, while ensuring the bath is at the correct working height. Controls for bath filling and shower functions are within easy reach on the thermostatic control panel and the stand-alone bath design enables good all-round access.
Time saved on transfers and other routine aspects of the bathing cycle means the caregiver has more time to devote to the resident, who in turn enjoys more quality time in the bath. In the wider scheme of things, a streamlined bathing cycle allows an ideal number of bathing sessions per day in residential facilities.
Excellent cosmetic and tested working condition with minimal sign of previous use. There are a few minor scuffs and/or scratches but you really have to look for them. I tested the raise/lower and it is working properly. The recline is working properly. The door is sealing properly and there are no leaks. All three speeds on the air massage is working. I did not hook up the water lines so I couldn’t test the faucets but I am sure they are working fine. The drain is working properly. The remote is working properly. No surprises here. You will get a great bathing system in ready to use condition.
