Why Walk In Tubs Are Safe and Practical For Seniors

They also come with a variety of handles, ensuring that the user can easily open and close the door without assistance. If the door opens outward, you’ll want to make sure that there’s plenty of room, so it doesn’t impair mobility.

An inward opening door will be usually be narrower, while an outward opening door provides a wider space for entry and exit. For those with severe mobility issues, an outward opening door will provide more room for maneuvering.
