The Invacare Rio Bath Lift is an inexpensive, easy to use lift that is designed to make getting into and out of the bathtub safer and easier for people with limited mobility.
If you're looking for an easy to use, basic bath lift then the Invacare Rio might be for you. At a lightweight 21 pounds, this unit comes in four pieces which are easy to assemble, and doesn't require any tools. The lift itself attaches to the bathtub with four self-releasing suction cups which provide stability while the lift is in use. Invacare delivers the quality you have come to expect as this lift gently lowers you into the water and smoothly raises you out when you are finished.
The Invacare Rio Bath Lift offers a maximum weight capacity of 264 pounds. The seat is just over 17" deep and 14.6" wide without the side transfer flaps, or 28.3 inches wide with them. The non-recling, stationary backrest measures 24.2" tall. This unit raises to a little over 17" to assist you in getting into and out of the bath. What really sticks out though is the super low minimum seat height of 2.36". A simple to use two-button battery operated remote control operates the lift by raising and lowering you into or out of the water.
The modern, clean design of the Rio Bath Lift has smooth surfaces and an aluminum frame which makes cleaning it easy. The compact size fits nearly any sized bathtub, and its lightweight design makes taking it in and out of the tub a breeze when necessary. The battery driven motor offers quiet and smooth operation. Great for users and caregivers alike, the Rio makes a great low cost alternative to bathroom renovations.

Fits just fine!
No real problems with the bath lift. Was a little difficult to get it into the tub by myself and get it situated, although that could be because my tub is slightly curved at the floor. Pretty simple to use and seems to be built well.
Works for what I need
I can't give it a five star rating, as I don't think it's the best of the best. However, I do think that it serves its purpose well.
I paid a little more than I would've liked to have paid and I haven't owned it long enough to know if it's going to hold up.
I purchased this chair
I purchased this chair renlctey because I am unable to stand long enough to take a shower. My order arrived quickly and I was very pleased with this product. It is very stury and well designed. The chair has several height adjustments and they are easy to change. I liked the fact that the chair is concave and has slots for the shower water to drain. One can easily remove the back, if desired, and the chair can readily be moved by using the hand slots in the seat. I have only positive things to say about this shower bench. I would highly recommend it to anyone without reservations.
