Aquassure Accessible Baths Co-Founders Venture into the Dragons' Den

Accessibility Products Leaders to Appear on Popular Reality Television Show to Pitch the Aquassure Slide-in Bathtub

KELOWNA, BC, Feb. 10, 2016 /CNW/ - Aquassure Accessible Baths, a leading designer of accessible bath products for seniors and disabled persons, announced today that its founders, Matthew Longman and Shari McDowell, will pitch their company and their ADL Spa Slide-in Tub on the hit reality television show "Dragons' Den." The show gives entrepreneurs a chance to pitch their business to five business moguls.

The show will air on February 10 at 8:00 p.m. on CBC Television and online at

"We're thrilled to have the opportunity to share our product with the show's experts and nearly one million Canadian viewers," said Longman, CEO, and Certified Aging in Place Specialist, with over 20 years of healthcare experience. "The ageing population has created a need for innovative lifestyle products that give individuals control over their independence and quality of life. We hope to drive awareness of this growing need, and the solutions that we've developed."

Longman has long been a pioneer in the development of accessibility products, designing the slide-in bathtub for wheelchair and lift accessibility. The Aquassure Slide-in Tub features an elevated full-size bathtub. The company also carries barrier-free, roll-in showers, and walk-in tubs.

In 2011, Aquassure licensed production of the slide-in bathtub to Best Bath Systems of Boise, Idaho. The company is currently in the process of licensing its sliding door technology to a second manufacturer in the U.S.

"We're poised for tremendous growth," said Shari McDowell, chief financial officer. "Our goal is to become the Canadian leader in universal-design, contemporary bath systems that fit every individual and family's unique situation."
