White plastic body with blue sucker pads on the bottom and two flaps on either side for easy transferring. The control unit is completely waterproof and attaches to the back of the seat via a plug with a rubber seal, and hook style latch to prevent it from unplugging itself.

A bath seat ultimately isn’t suitable for me, but until I find a property with a wet room I have no choice. So it is helpful in that sense but does end up causing more trouble than it’s worth. Cleaning the bottom of it is an absolute nightmare, as there are lots of hard to reach bits, nooks and crannies etc. Plus due to the fact, the seat is quite heavy and there are only 2 sucker pads on the back, it ends up sliding down the wall and falling into the bath! (I now just prop it sideways!) It has 2 side flaps that fold onto the seat, which you can easily remove by unscrewing, but I use these for a side transfer onto the seat. I also have difficulty lifting my leg over the bath, which makes things a little trickier; I’ve also accidentally pinched my skin on my thigh between bath and the seat flaps, so it makes me really nervous about side transferring onto it independently!
To take it out the bath you need to fully lower and recline the back part of the seat, then push it forward and lift straight up. Then the bottom bit is then removed separately, although it is quite heavy so my partner does this for me. It says you need to charge it after every use, but I personally don’t do this as it lasts me 2 weeks or so before the battery runs out.
Overall, it definitely helps, but I still struggle to use it, clean it and remove it!
