3 Crucial Pieces of Bath Safety Equipment, Lincoln, Nebraska

For people with mobility issues, bathrooms are especially dangerous. Slippery floors, awkward motions, and sharp edges on counters and fixtures can create the perfect conditions for accidents and serious injuries. Having the right bath safety equipment installed can reduce some of the dangers of your home, giving you and your family peace of mind.

3 Important Pieces of Bath Safety Equipment

1. Toilet Seat Elevators

Many commercially available toilets sit too low for people who have difficulty standing up. For these individuals, sitting on or standing up from the seat can cause knee strain, back pain, and may result in a fall. Seat elevators are designed to make using the toilet safer by adding three to five inches of height. Paired with grab bars or a safety frame, a toilet seat elevator can significantly reduce your risk of fall or injury in the bathroom.

2. Grab Bars

3. Shower Chairs

Bathing is often difficult for those with poor balance or difficulty standing. Shower benches allow individuals to bathe without the risk of falling — especially when used in conjunction with grab bars and extendable shower heads.
