Kingfisher Bath Shower Board

What else should I know about the bath board?

Easy to install and maintain. Our Kingfisher® bath shower board can be easily positioned to sit securely across the top of your bath. You will then be able to sit and lift your legs over into the bath, instead of stepping in.

The bath board seat is for use by the elderly or less mobile. If you are no longer able to safely climb in/out of the bath, you have reduced mobility or reduced strength to safely transfer, and you have the ability to sit unsupported/unaided. Because of this the bath board is not suitable for users who are unable to sit without support.

Key Safety Points:
This bath board is not suitable for a corner bath.
It is not recommended that it be fitted where there is an overlap or under hang of more than 25mm.
Ensure you do a visual check that the internal bath width does not exceed the safety guide mark on both ends of the board before continuing with use.

You might find our leg lifter useful if you need additional help lifting your legs into the bath.

If you would prefer your bath board with a handle, please choose ‘yes’ on the drop down menu above.

You can also use it to transfer safely down into the bath, or in conjunction with a bath seat.

34 reviews for Kingfisher® Bath and Shower Board

  1. B Clarke

    This has helped me so much after my knee replacement

  2. Christine gardiner – Amazon Customer

    it made me feel more secure while bathing

  3. Shropshire Lass – Amazon Customer

    Bought this so that I was able shower in the bath whilst I was in a cast after an accident in which I broke a leg.
    Although it’s plastic, it is sturdy and secure enough to take my weight at 95kg.
    The suction cups hold well enough to my plastic bath but are set to maximum width to fit my bath.
    The good points are:-
    Firm but flexible
    Sturdy when in place
    Place for soap
    Easy to clean
    Grooved for quick water run off
    Nice colour
    Doubles as ipad holder and beer tray (unofficially) when having a bath

    Not so good points:-
    Might struggle to fit baths wider than 820mm
    If you use shower gel, the soap dish is redundant.
    Don’t need it anymore as my leg is fixed, unless I plan to break the other one just so I can use it again..

  4. L MacDonald

    I wish I had got one years ago even before I had condition

  5. AJE17 – Amazon Customer

    Generally a good product. It allows my wife to shower until she can bend down again. But fixing it on safely , where the grab handles are, is rather difficult. Longer grip pads on the screw fixings might have helped.

  6. Lisa K. – Amazon Customer

    Easy to add suction security tabs, Solid and great with handle for security

  7. Ms C Brooks – Amazon Customer

    Everything did what it’s supposed to do and I’m in the process of ordering one for my parents

  8. Tivvy Lass – Amazon Customer

    Bought to enable me to have a bath/shower whilst I have a leg cast on. Easy to fit and remove – we have a shaped bath and it’s been fine to fit, by hubby who can be “diy challenged” but he’s had no problem. Strong and secure

  9. Ali Mac – Amazon Customer

    This is absolutely perfect! I broke my leg and ankle and could get into the bath or shower as unable to stand. So easy to set up and very sturdy. I am a big girl and I feel completely safe and secure using this. It’s a been a complete game changer for me. Totally recommend!!

  10. Amazon Customer

    Perfect for using after hip replacement operation – Completely confident for using when getting in and out of bath to use over bath shower.

  11. shelley herbert – Amazon Customer

    Life Changer – I am so happy with this and it’s big life changer for my mum as now able sit have shower and wash down as mum no longer can get in or out of bath, can’t stand up too long as get dizzy. So this bath seat is so perfect and keep mum safe. Definitely recommend this

  12. vivienne marie bailey – Amazon Customer

    My wife has difficulty getting out of the bath. This seat has solved this problem for her. So Glad we purchased this item.

  13. Caroline – Amazon Customer

    Very sturdy. I’ve broken my ankle and this product makes it so much easier for me to have a proper shower and feel safe. Just adjusted to fit securely on my bath. 👌👌

  14. tracey davey – Amazon Customer

    Really handy as I have a bad back and saves me having to bend in the shower. stays in place and easily movable for any other bathroom users.

  15. Stella Spilling – Amazon customer

    I have recently had a hip replacement operation and not having a shower meant that I have been having to wash at the sink. Our bath is very high and very deep so is impossible to use whilst recovering. A relative suggested a bath board and after much searching came across the Kingfisher board which had good reviews and seemed suitable.
    I am very impressed by it and am using it every day now to get into the bath. It is very sturdy, takes my weight easily at 11 stone, and fixes firmly into position. There is a handy handle at one side and a space for your soap to fit close to hand. As our bath is so high I have placed a stool near the side of the bath so that I can place my feet on there while I slide across the board over the water.
    I would recommend this item as for me its working perfectly.

  16. S Spilling

    Would recommend this product. I am now able to access my bath after my recent operation

  17. Andrew Wilson – Amazon Customer

    Used for elderly mother who struggled with standing up in shower

  18. A Lock

    Our shower is over the bath so the board makes it easier to shower in the bath

  19. eve3981 – Amazon Customer

    My mother struggles getting in & out of the bath. She did not like the electronic inflating device the council provided and it was to heavy to lift & clean. She is happy with this as a compromise

  20. Vanda Dowey – Amazon Customer

    I’ve been searching for a product to aid my mum aged 94 with bath times. This is just right. It is very securely fitted to the bath and my mum has the confidence to be left to wash herself freely without help. I can’t fault it at all 10/10

  21. LJB – Amazon Customer

    Used this post hip operation to help me to shower, sitting above the bath. It’s sturdy, handle helped me to get onto the board and gave me support when swinging my injured leg into the bath. Doesn’t take up too much room in the bathroom. Recommend.

  22. Adele – Amazon Customer

    I’m impressed with the bath seat I had a lovely shower for the first time in a long time. Instead of struggling to get washed as quickly as possible and get out without falling I languished under the shower for 20 mins and felt safe and secure.

  23. D Carol Stoke – Amazon Customer

    Absolutely brilliant! I have been wanting a shower stool or a seat for ages, and had not thought about a board until l saw my mum’s friend board in her bathroom. As soon as I got home, l saw this Amazon recommendation and ordered it. It arrived very quickly the day, was very easy to fit and I have had no problems with it. It may be light to lift but incredibly strong and stable to use, excellent suction power. I step into the bath, sit down and feel very comfortable and relaxed. I switch off and enjoy taking my showers. There are so many shower boards to choose from, so I am glad for the recommendation and would certainly say this is a great buy. Thank you Kingfisher!

  24. Dawn Ryan – Amazon Customer

    It was what I needed to help me after my hip replacement operation to be able to get in & out of bath for showers. Was very much value for money & will continue to be used. Arrived very quickly so was a happy woman 😀😀

  25. Amazon Customer

    I was recommended this by a fellow knee replacement warrior . We had a over the bath shower in our holiday cottage and it worked so well it meant I was able to have a shower

  26. Avery – Amazon Customer

    This bath seat has been a godsend. I’ve recently hurt my back and struggle getting in and out of the bath. This product has changed this, enabling me to have baths. I was a bit nervous to use it at first, was worried that it wouldn’t take my weight. It is very sturdy, I fully recommend it.

  27. NH

    The Bathboard was easy to install & it means i can shower independently & safely following a fractured shoulder.

  28. Jan Blaikie – Amazon Customer

    Bought this for after hip replacement and used it tonight. Just perfect (the OT at the hospital showed me how to use it. Very secure and means I can shower and wash my hair much sooner than I thought. Brilliant product

  29. Dr Poppet

    Ideal item to support independent bathing following fractured shoulder

  30. Jayne F – Amazon Customer

    Very sturdy once fitted. Following a hip replacement I was able to shower for the first time. Absolutely bliss. Reasonably priced. Definitely recommend.

  31. Lesley Parson

    I can now get into the bath for a shower after my stroke

  32. Amazon Customer

    First time in years i have had a shower with no pain in upper and lower back. Recently due to a knee ligament tear this had made things even worse.. I was looking at another unit but it only took up to 90kg but this one takes up to 200kg 31stone.. I needed one that took a little more than the 90kg.. i felt very safe on the seat, comfortable and it did not budge which is a good thing as i would need firemen to get me out!!!
    All in all very good for the price, the handle is a great bonus and it feels very safe…

  33. Booklover Catlady – Amazon Customer

    Fantastic bath board! Super impressed. It’s nice looking with the white and green handle. The handle is super strong and firm built into one end of the board. You can have it either way, handle on the bath side or the wall side. My family use it for iPad placement (in a waterproof case) and we’ve even had glasses of drink on it. Versatile!

    It can be used in many ways. If you have mobility issues to get in your bath you’d put the handle near the wall, sit on the end of it then gently swing your legs over the bath. You can then get out the same way. It is ideal if you need to sit to shower or bathe also.

    I also use it getting in and out of an actual bath (as in full water with bubbles). I face the handle on the edge of the bath then I’ve a strong metal grip handle on the wall so I can hold on to both to lower myself and get up again. I’ve had NHS ones before after hip surgery which were rather ugly and more heavy and harder to store. I’d recommend this 100% to anyone. Very pleased and it exceeded expectations at this low price.”

  34. M Fletcher-Shaw

    The bath board along with the bath seat enables me to still have a reasonable bath – thanks for the free long handled brush!
