Although primarily used in the bathroom and toilet, grab rails can be positioned anywhere in and around the home to provide support. Conveniently placed rails will provide help in four ways:
- Push or pull against when standing up
- Provide a steadying support whilst sitting
- Provide a firm grip when moving from one position to another
- Provide assistance when standing, walking or dressing
The type and length required will depend upon the situation and the hand or arm strength of the person. A combination of vertical, horizontal and angled hand rails is often helpful. The following lengths and combinations are available: 12” (300mm), 18” (450mm), 24” (600mm) and angled. They are available in 4 different finishes - white, red, blue and chromium plated.
