Invacare TheraPure tubs are powered by SANIJET® pipeless technology, allowing the caregiver to remove up to 99.9% of infectious bacteria in about five minutes. TheraPure tubs meet NSF International’s hospital-grade standards.

Pipeless jets create less noise than piped or air bubble tubs. Bath oils can be added without concern for residue buildup. TheraPure tubs feature auto-fill/auto shut-off and intuitive controls including an integrated lever to control water pressure directly from the shower wand.
