Grab bars are safety devices designed to enable a person to maintain balance, lessen fatigue while standing, hold some of their weight while maneuvering, or have something to grab onto in case of a slip or fall. A caregiver may use a grab bar to assist with transferring a patient from one place to another. A person with mobility challenges may use grab bars to help with their personal needs.
Grab bars are often used in conjunction with the Safeway Safety Step or Safeway Tub Door to increase safety. For example, a grab bar added to a shower is frequently used with a shower chair and hand held shower head. Grab bars installed by a doorway are usually added near a railing. In addition, grab bars can be placed on any wall where extra support is needed even if it is not the “usual place” they are used.
- Grab bars next to a toilet help people using a transfer to the toilet seat and back to the wheelchair. They also assist people who have difficulty sitting down, have balance problems while seated or need help rising from a seated position.
- Floor to ceiling grab bars, or security poles, can be used in a shower or bathtub, grab bars help to maintain balance while standing or maneuvering, assist in transferring into and out of the enclosure, and generally help to mitigate slips and falls.
- Can be used in the bedroom to help one get out of bed or get up from a chair, or to help caregivers by assisting in transfers.
