What Are Grab Bars?

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016 by morethan

Grab bars are safety devices designed to enable a person to maintain balance, lessen fatigue while standing, hold some of their

weight while manoeuvring, or have something to grab onto in case of a slip or fall.  A caregiver may also use a grab bar to assist with transferring a patient from one place to another.

Grab bars next to a toilet help people using a wheelchair 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.

Used in a shower or bathtub, grab bars help to maintain balance while standing or manoeuvring, assist in transferring into and out of the enclosure, and generally help to mitigate slips and falls.

Floor to ceiling grab bars, or security poles, 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.

Grab bars are often used in conjunction with other medical devices 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.

Perfect for giving that extra support when searching for keys, opening or closing the front or back door or negotiating the door step.

Here at More Than Mobility we offer a range of grab bars such as economy grab bars, suction cup grab bars and drop down safety rails.   Available in range of sizes from as little as £5.99!
