Dan Ringhofer, co-owner of Independent Lifestyle Solutions, demonstrated the Acrylic Deluxe Walk-in Tub. Designed for aging homeowners who have trouble stepping into a traditional tub/shower combination, this model is accessed by an inward- swinging side door. Its 18-inch contoured seat is surrounded by eight water jets and 14 air spa jets. A digital panel controls the water temperature, FM radio, hydrotherapy jet system and chromotherapy lighting. Ringhofer said a bathroom’s standard opening for a traditional tub is 60 inches, but since the walk-in is 54 inches in length, a coordinating accessory ledge is offered to fit the space left by the difference in size
