If you or a loved one are dealing with any kind of mobility issues, it might be time to consider converting your bathroom into an accessible one. Accessible upgrades can be tailor-made to meet your needs so that you can get the most functionality possible. So if you’re looking at converting to an accessible bathroom, here are a few products that can help increase your independence and improve your way of life.
Raised Toilet Seats
If you are recovering from surgery or returning home from the hospital, one of the essential additions to making your bathroom accessible will be a raised toilet seat, like the Drive Medical 4” Raised Toilet Seat. Upgrading to a raised toilet seat will make life a whole lot easier and ease stress on your joints. Choose a raised toilet seat that fits most toilets, requires no tools to install, and is lightweight and portable. You may also find adjustable toilet safety rails, such as the AMG AquaSense Versa Frame to be quite helpful. These bathroom safety products make it much easier to get on and off the toilet safely.
Tub and Grab Bars
There’s nothing worse than the fear of falling, especially when you or a loved one may already be recovering from an injury or dealing with any sort of mobility issues. So for bathrooms, it is imperative to have grab bars installed to avoid the wet and slippery spots that can cause a potential fall. Whether it’s in the tub, beside the toilet or anywhere you may need it – we’ve got a rail to lend you a hand. We have a wide selection of grab bars and rails, including permanent metal grab bars bolted to the wall, such as Drive Medical Chrome Grab Bars.
Shower and Bath Seats
With a variety of shower seats that can be tailor-selected for your comfort, you can sit back, relax and enjoy a shower with safety and ease. From our adjustable bath stools to a comfortable padded bath bench with arms – you can feel secure with MEDability products the next time you step into the shower. Alternatively, if you prefer to soak in a bath, we also provide secure transfer boards and lifts for extra comfort and safety.
From slip-proof shower mats to hand-held showerheads, simple accessory adjustments will give peace of mind and comfort with ease.
So if you’re in the process of upgrading your bathroom to become more accessible, making a thorough assessment of the needs, and functionality beforehand is essential. By installing and adding just a few bathroom safety products, it can take away some of the associated fear and discomfort that many people feel with inhibited mobility. If you or a loved one are recovering from an injury, returning from a hospital stay, or dealing with any sort of mobility limitation, making the bathroom functional and accessible restores independence and comfort.
