Grab Bars are one of the most cost-effective most important safety tools available to help equip your home for those with any type of mobility issue. They are easily installed and give an extra lift for those who are aging, weak from surgery, illness, heart or lung conditions, stroke or for those who rely on wheelchairs or walkers to get around. Rane makes the Grab Easy Bar which is one of the best on the market.
Purpose of a Grab Bar
When installed near a toilet, the Grab Easy Bar gives a built-in stabilizing handle to hang on to when sitting down, standing up or even pulling oneself up from a difficult seated position. They can be installed vertically, horizontally or diagonally- depending on the layout of your bathroom and the height needed for the person who will be using it. The Grab Easy Bar offers stability when standing up or transferring. It can give a rock-solid handle to help pull oneself from the extremely difficult position of sitting to standing. Many with a mobility challenge do not have sufficient strength in their legs to pull themselves unaided to stand. Grab Bars are a very critical and practical way to provide safe assistance in the bathroom for toileting or bathing.
Installation of Grab Bars
Grab Bars can be installed at different angles but the most important part of installation is making sure they are well-anchored to give optimum support. Find your studs in the wall to attach the grab bars to them. Most studs are between 16-32 inches apart. Bars can also be anchored using toggle bolts where there is no stud, but obviously a stud will give more strength. Vertical application is a great position for holding while stepping into or out of a tub or shower. Horizontal is good for next to a toilet or chair. The user can use their weight on it to get up. A diagonal installation is good for multiple users as they can use different parts of the bar and it is easier on the wrist.
