A walk-in bathtub, unlike a traditional bathtub, allows you to walk in and out without stepping over a barrier.

Rather than be fixed to the wall like a standard tub, a walk-in bathtub is equipped with a door, opening outward upon entry.  Once inside, you can either sit on the floor of the tub or on a built-in seat.

These tubs are often installed in homes for those w ho have mobility issues or for those who have a hard time entering a normal tub when stepping over the ledge such as senior citizens.
