Bathmaster Sonaris Bath Lift


Bathmaster Sonaris Bath Lift and Bathmaster Sonaris Bath Lift Bundles are available at


Bathmaster's Sonaris Bath Lift is a battery-operated device that's easy as pie to install. Simply place the unit in the bottom of your tub and it's ready for use! The seat and back disconnect and reconnect quickly, which makes the Sonaris a good option for bath lift users who need their mobility aid on vacations or trips away from home. The lift seat and reclining back are both operated via a hand control that uses smart technology to prevent the user from lowering the lift if the battery is too low to raise the person back out of the tub. An indicator light and warning tone will alert you when your battery needs to be recharged! The Sonaris Bath Lift comes with a 5-year warranty on the frame and a 2-year warranty on the hand control and recharger.

Some to most bath lifts on the market today pale in comparison to the Bathmaster Sonaris in design, comfort, safety and price. With the Sonaris, one can recline to a degree of comfort according to the individual’s preference. Other mobility products only leave the option of an upright or a preset recline position. The Sonaris allows the user to control completely the bath lifts entire recline feature up to a full forty degrees. The latest design also ensures that legroom is not compromised while in the full reclined position.

Operating a top of a line bath lift has never been more convenient or user friendly. The Bathmaster Sonaris boasts the use of a simplistic water-proof handheld controller for convenience. With only a large textured surface as its control pad, the Sonaris Bath Lift is an obvious favorite for the visually impaired. On the safety side, the Sonaris more than holds its water by providing a built in safety mechanism that will prevent the Sonaris from lowering itself without enough battery power to lift itself back up. Included with this feature is a self-diagnostic system to ensure that the bath lift is fully operational and safe to use. An audible beep and indicator light will alert the user should the battery need recharging. Maximized battery performance is further enhanced by a sleep feature included in the waterproof controller, so after a brief time, it simply shuts off. For even more convenience, turning off the sleep feature is as easy using the controller as normal, simply press the control pad to restore complete function of the Sonaris Bath Lift. With all the benefits the Sonaris provides, it still completes an amazing 18-20 lifts per charge!


Combines superb functionality, outstanding performance and great design giving the user a delightful bathing experience. The single-button operation allows the user to descend and keep the backrest upright or to recline back to a more comfortable position, while retaining ample leg room to relax in the bath. All-plastic construction is easy to clean, yet strong and durable to ensure stability and years of use. The lightweight seat and back simply click together easily for quick assembly, installation and removal. The Sonaris fits most shapes and sizes of bath tubs with suction-cup feet that may be angled in any direction to suit the curvature of the bath and to ensure stability and safety. Easy to operate.
Key benefits of the Sonaris include:
  • Superior battery provides average of 8-10 lifts, depending on the weight of the user and the number of times used weekly. It only requires three hours to fully charge.
  • Recline is entirely controlled by the user after the lift has completed its descent.
  • The user can select any angle of recline up to 40°.
  • Speed is decreased during the reclining of the backrest so the user feels more comfortable.
  • Holding points on each component simplify carrying and transportation.
  • Large side flaps allow easy transfers.
  • Simple operation; just lightly press the large control pads, which are textured to assist the visually impaired.
  • An audible beep and warning light identify when the battery requires charging and when to stop using the bath lift.
  • A built-in safety mechanism ensures the bath lift will not lower if there is insufficient charge in the battery to raise the user.
  • An automatic sleep facility occurs after 10 minutes of non-use in order to optimize battery performance. Reactivate simply by pressing a control pad.
  • 5 year warranty on frame, 2 years on motor/actuator, hand controller, recharger, and cover.



You have to try a few shower chairs to appreciate this one. It is strong and steady. The seat is wide so no worries about sliding off. The flaps keep water from spilling over onto the floor, which can be disastrous for a person with a disability or who is aging. The chair goes deep enough to allow for a soak. I personally think this is important. The cover is replaceable, so the unit always looks new. I've had no problems at all with the hand control, and can't identify with others remarks. The ONLY complaint I have is that the base of the chair has rails which are difficult to deep clean. I don't know what we would've done without this chair. We tried other types and never felt secure. With this one, I don't worry about my daughter falling. Simply the best. By the way, we've had this product for 16 years.
