Bathing Safety Equipment

Grab bars

Grab bars offer support while getting in and out of the bathtub, reducing the risk of a fall. Wall-mounted grab bars, installed properly into walls that are in good condition, are more stable than tub mounted bars. Tub-mounted bars attach directly on the bathtub, but they must be used with caution as they can easily detach when used incorrectly.
