Grab Bars Get Going
Great Grabz is a grab bar company that wants to address not only safety but esthetics as well. Three new lines fill the needs for patients with varying amounts of independence and mobility impairment. Oftentimes complete remodeling of a bath is not necessary if the patient’s mobility is only slightly impaired. Installation of grab bars to specifications that are tailored to the patient’s specific needs and physicality enhance safety not only in bathrooms but hallways and entries to the home.
Great Grabz has a basic line of devices and three new lines of decorative grab bars. Not all of these are rated ADA compatible. The challenge is to find a bar that is esthetically pleasing and that provides a safe, non-slip grip. Other manufacturers of “new and improved” grab bars are Kohler and Moen plumbing fixture companies. We’ll take a look at these in future posts. And the safest, most secure way to attach them to walls.
