Bios Padded Bath Transfer Bench is lightweight but able to hold a 250 pound adult. The suction pads on the legs work very well so that once you are in the shower the bench doesn't move around. I found I had no problems transfering into the tub and back out of the tub. I find the seat surprisingly comfortable. I was very happy with how easy it was to adjust the height and to remove or adjust the backrest. The bench has given me the freedom to shower without help for the first time in a year and a half. Love it.
