As you Plan:

If aging-in-place, universal design or ADA-related products work best for your needs, MTI has a variety of bathtubs, many designed specifically to work within ADA guidelines, and walk-in-tub, barrier-free shower pans and teak shower seats that can be mounted inside or outside of the shower. Wall-mounted Counter-Sinks and Vanity Sinks that allow for space beneath are also ideal for designs that address mobility issues.
