The Council on Aging estimates that over 25,000 accidents occur in and around the tub area each year. As we grow older, our mobility isn’t the same as it was when we were young, and some find it difficult to get in and out of the tub. This can lead to slips, trips, and falls, which can cause serious injuries. The need for easier access to the tub becomes essential.
Miracle Method offers the Easy Step – an alternative to replacing your current tub with a walk-in tub, as the Easy Step converts the tub into a shower in just one day. The Easy Step conversion process lowers one side of the tub to make entering and exiting easier and safer, as it creates a 24 inch wide by 9 inch tall notch in the side of a tub. Instead of stepping over the side of the tub, users can step through, which reduces the risk of losing your balance and falling.
Additionally, the Easy Step from Miracle Method is a very cost effective alternative to replacing a current tub with a walk-in tub. Walk-in tubs require significant amounts of time and money to install. Walk in tubs can cost between $5000 -$10,000, but an Easy Step can often be installed for $800 – $1200. With the Easy Step, you’ll have your new, safe bathing area in just a day. Miracle Method can also provide a complete safety package by adding Grab Bars, non-slip treatments, and hand held shower attachments.
Another wonderful benefit of the Easy Step process is that it can easily be reversed if necessary. All we need to do is reinstall the cutout and refinish it to look like new.
