  • Patent number: 4413362
    Abstract: The Sitdown Shower for Children enhances the capability of the standard bathtub by allowing a child to be showered in a sitting or lying posture in the middle of the tub. The shower is attached to the bathtub's tap by means of a sleeve adapter which fits in a glove-like manner over the downward projection of the tap. Rigid and self-supporting tubing extends from the adapter and projects the shower water to a moveable shower head connected to the far end of the rigid tubing. The lateral inclination of the shower head is slightly above the tap. In addition, horizontal and vertical suction cups are selectively located to brace the rigid tubing and provide added support for the tubing. The bathtub's hot and cold shutoff valves control the shower water and allow the temperature of the water to be adjusted.
