My New Favorite Travel Accessory: The Go Mobility Shower Chair

My New Favorite Travel Accessory: The Go Mobility Shower Chair

I remember the days when I had to drag my shower chair across the airport. The big, bulky one with a hole in the seat for me to slide over a toilet. Everyone was looking and probably thinking, “how gross” or “oh bless his heart, how pitiful” as my care attendant rolled it through the queue. It screamed, “look! I’m disabled!”. But not anymore. Those days are long gone since I now have my own Go Mobility shower chair. I just got it a couple months ago and since then it has traveled with me all the way from Iceland to Alabama. I’ve discovered that this product is my new must-have travel accessory and I’d love to tell you why. go mobility travel shower chair

There it is in all of its glory!

 

The Go Mobility Shower Chair secretly folds away inside of a rolling suitcase. It looks like just another piece of luggage. With most airlines, medical equipment flies free and the chance of it getting damaged in flight is slim because of the padded case. The wheels in the case pivot to roll sideways or forward to make it even easier.

The Go Mobility shower chairs can be ordered with several options to accommodate each individual need. I chose mine to be able to roll into a shower or slide into a bath tub with a simple lock in attachment. I always request a roll in shower when traveling to a hotel, but sometimes to my dismay, I end up rolling into a room that has a bath tub instead of what I requested. The bath attachment also fits in the same suitcase with the rolling shower chair, which means that you will be prepared for either one.

Which of these shower chairs would you rather pull through the airport?

 

I also requested armrest extenders for my Go Mobility chair. This makes the chair more comfortable and secure for me. Also, the seat cushion has a hole in it so it can also double as a toilet chair. There are various other things that you can request such as a thicker cushion, brake extensions, or heel straps for the footrests. You can truly get the ideal chair for your personal needs, including a self-propel option if you can wheel yourself into the shower.

The legs on the chair are adjustable in height so that no matter what the height of the toilet is, the chair will easily roll over it, allowing both toileting and showering without having to be transferred two times. The chair also comes in the color choices of red, blue or black. This is a nice change from the typical white shower chairs that you normally see.

Another thing that really made me want this shower chair is not only it’s neat suitcase, but the fact that the chair can be assembled from suitcase to shower within 5 minutes. And with absolutely no tools! I have included a video above of my mother taking the chair from the case and assembling it to show you exactly how quickly it can be done. This is very convenient because as you know, I want to spend my time on vacation seeing the sights, not trying to figure out how I’m going to get a big bulky chair around the airport with gawking onlookers.
