At-home slip and fall accidents occur most often in the bathroom. Rugs, grip mats and other traction devices all help to an extent however are not entirely safe. Safety and grab bars can be strategically installed to ensure support and stability at all times. Safety bars in the bathroom are often installed in the following areas:
- Safety Bars for Shower - Safety bar placement in the shower provides stability when standing and help with transition from sitting to standing when a shower seat may be in place. Grab bars provide security where there typically is none. Don’t take any risks with your physical well-being or with your independency. A small fall could discourage your ability to stay at home self-sufficiently.
- Safety Bars for Toilets - Toilets weren’t designed for those who experience mobility difficulties. Toilets are often lower to the ground making it difficult to sit and stand easily. Safety bars installed next to a toilet will help make toilet access easier for those who have complications. We can install flip-up safety rails easily kept out of the way when not needed.
- Safety Bars for Tubs - Bathtubs are another fixture in the home which become difficult to use when mobility is hindered. Safety grab bars installed in and next to the bathtub makes getting in and out of the tub safer and easier.
