PRVC shower curtains are designed for easier and faster changeouts. The PRVC shower rod can be manufactured with a hinged Gate that allows the track to open for movement of a linear patient lift into the shower and bath area. Another alternative is the PRVC Swing Arm track system. This is hinged at the wall and the entire track moves out of the way allowing patient lift movement. The Swing- Arm works with either a XYZ or Linear Patient Lift to pass through the area which is normally blocked by the shower rod and prevents the patient from entering the desired area using the patient lift.
