  1. This looks like great device to have for not only the elderly, but all if recovering from an illness. I was worried about what would happen if the battery ran out when you were in the bath, but then was relieved to read that the device wouldn’t lower unless it had enough power to get up again, which is a great benefit for peace of mind.

      Thanks for commenting Michel!

  2. Great product which I believe will help for the disabled. But what do you think about the power supply and safety (water proof). does the seat provide anti slip? And is there any lock for the seat.

    Can you provide some info for the handle? I believe handle trail is needed for elderly. TQ

      Hi Wilson, the power supply is well insulated so there’s nothing to worry about. No anti-slip for the seat cover but it shouldn’t be a problem since one’s body weight keeps it firmly in place. The handle, as mentioned in the post, is just 4 simple color-coded buttons, that’s it!

    This looks like a great solution for a fraction of the cost for the elderly and disabled. My grandfather was very ill in the later part of his life and needed assistance getting in and out of the tub. I know he wished he had the dignity and independence of being able to bathe alone. It seems like a small thing but it really does make a big difference when you aren’t able to do those simple things for yourself. Great review!

      Hi Heather, thanks for commenting! I only wish these bath lifts were around years ago. Back then, the only choice one had were super expensive walk-in tubs!

  4. That’s an interesting chair lift system. It looks like you still have to climb into the tub though and then sit down on the chair. Is that right? Too bad it didn’t pivot around, so you could walk up to the tub, sit down on the chair, and have it pivot around and bring you into the tub. That would be a lot more complicated though. For the price, this sounds like a real good deal. Thanks for the review.

      Hi Jim, thanks for your comment. You don’t have to climb into the tub, you simply slide onto the seat flaps. And yes, customers are really happy with this unit overall.

  5. This is a brilliant product. Looking at the product image, I can’t believe it can withstand 300 pounds of weight, that’s amazing! Judging from the 3-year warranty and the fact that it is manufactured in Germany, it seems durable and trustworthy and easy to use. I’m going to give this serious consideration, thanks.

      Sounds good, if you have any questions, just let me know!

    I have been looking for a bath lift for my son who is disabled. As he gets bigger, getting him into the tub will become harder and harder. For now, we have a larger bath chair for him but it is not automatic and we have been trying to find a good one for future use. Your review is very clear and easy to understand. I especially appreciate that you included the information about the unclear assembly instructions. I’ll be looking into this product more to see if it will work for us. Thank you for the excellent review.

      You’re welcome Jessica – I hope it works out for your son!

    Hello, this is very interesting. I have a family member who is disabled due to a car accident and he’s struggled taking baths ever since. I think this might help him to become more self-reliant and start feeling better about himself again. What a great invention!

    Thanks for reviewing this, Jose

      You’re welcome, Jose 🙂

  8. Hi, this auto bath lifter looks really interesting. I like that the handheld control is waterproof. Very convenient if you don’t feel like reaching behind.

    I agree that the battery is costly at $200 per year. Will a disabled person require help to use this bath lifter? Is it also suitable for elderly people?

    1. Stephan Zev says:

      Hi Yvonne, the Bellavita is designed for disabled and elderly people to use the device on their own. It’s a great way to reclaim some independence!

    Hello! I hope you see this.

    I have looked for the answer everywhere.

    I have multiple sclerosis and after I broke my wrist trying to get out of the tub. My boyfriend got a Bellavita for me.

    I love it! I can take a bath again. I hate showers.

    Sometimes the green light will flash when I’m using it. It will then not go up until I turn it off a minute and then it will be fine.

    I saw no mention of the flashing green light while trying to go up. What causes this to happen?

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Debra, I’m afraid I don’t know the answer to that question. Your best bet is to get in touch with the manufacturer. All the best!

  10. Wow, that’s really cool. Thank you so much for providing such specific details about this. Being disabled is no joke and I’m glad that there are new inventions coming out to help enjoy life’s basic necessities. Love the warranty and Germany-manufactured items are usually of very high quality. Will definitely check this out, thanks again for the review.

    Hi Stephan,

    I have been talking to a family member who has a compression fracture and has been limited to movement. Fortunately, she is not paralyzed but she had quite a struggle to bathe herself. I really enjoyed watching the video on the Bellavita Bath Lift. What a wonderful idea and I can definitely see this would have worked well for her.

    I also have a friend whose mother is aging and I can see the Bellavita would be perfect for her too. Thanks very much and I’ll let my family member and my friend know.

    Hi Stephan,

    This is a great review! I am looking for a good bath lifter for my elderly grandmother as her birthday gift and I came across this product. I was skeptical at first but after reading your review, I am convinced that this is what she needs. Thank you so much for taking the time to share about this amazing product! Good job!

      Thanks Wilson 🙂

  13. I’m really interested in buying one of these devices. However, I get a lot of pain sitting on a hard surface. Is the seat padded, or could I put a waterproof cushion on the seat.

    1. The seat is not really padded but a waterproof cushion can work. Hope that helps Myra!
