Grab Rails / August 5, 2018 / MillicentChaloux
Grab Bars Benefit Everyone! Although grab bars still have a long way to go before theyre loved and accepted as decorative accent pieces for your bathroom everyone can enjoy the enhanced safety and convenience that well-installed grab bars afford. There are times when everyone can use a place to grab onto in a bathroom- ceramic and acrylic tub or shower surfaces are hard and become slippery when wet. An accident as trivial as dropping a bar of soap can pave the way for a potentially harmful fall no matter how fit you are. Bath grab bars give you place to reach out and hold your weight when your feet slip out from beneath you.
Grabbing on to items that are not meant for providing support will only make using the bathroom a risky experience. This is especially so in cases where the person tries to grab hold of the sink especially if it is a wall mounted one. Attachments not designed to provide support will only let the grabber down and could result in serious accidents and injuries. All bars and poles come in a variety of surface features and safety designs. You must shop around for the one most suitable for use in your bathroom. You must take into consideration the conditions and needs of the user focusing especially on the weight and also on what the user will need to use the safety feature for. Now more than ever the concept of remaining in our homes well into our senior years is becoming increasingly attractive. But before we make that decision there are some serious issues that need to be considered. First and foremost is our health for no matter how safe we make our home we need to be healthy enough to live on our own or at least with a minimum amount of assistance.
If you install on or two bars on each side the problem is eliminated. Dont worry - grab bars come in a variety of shapes and sizes so that you can fit them in even the tightest spaces to lean on or even in front your toilet so that you can grab onto it and pull yourself up. If the idea of putting smooth metal in your hands doesnt make you feel any safer you can pick up attachments that allow for a better more firm grip. Grab bars can go anywhere they dont have to be in your bathroom but it definitely helps if you need that kind of assistance. If you need one in your kitchen feel free to put it there - these items screw into the wall and once theyre in there they wont be coming out any time soon. If you are worried that they will be ugly and not match your tasteful décor try looking for ones that are brushed bronze or even ones that are ornate enough to suit your homes style.
