How We Tested
We recommend these products based on an intensive research process that's designed to cut through the noise and find the top products in this space. Guided by experts, we spend hours looking into the factors that matter, to bring you these selections.Click here for testing insights >
The most important factor in a shower chair is that the chair can hold your weight. Otherwise, the additional features won’t be of much use if your chair collapses. To avoid this terrible event, we encourage you to seek a chair that has a 20% higher capacity than the actual weight that you intend to place on the chair.
If you or the person you’re purchasing this shower chair for is sharing a bathroom with others, you’ll probably need to move the chair in and out of the shower quite almost every day. For that purpose, you’ll want a chair that is less than 5 pounds. Anything more than 5 lbs will be a nuisance to your everyday life.
When in doubt, trust those who’ve come before you. While we don’t always look at reviews, we certainly do when a decision is going to cost money and potentially endanger yourself or a loved one. There are lots of new products being launched but reviews tell all. Look for not just the best rating but also the number of reviews. Quantity will tell you a lot about consistency and quality over time. Evaluate many marketplaces’ reviews before making your final decision.
