Grab Bars

Grab Bars help prevent falls in the bathroom, the highest risk area of the home. They can be placed anywhere and serve multiple functions. Popular brands feature vinyl coated surfaces that are warm to the touch, in addition to stainless steel bars that double as bathroom fixtures.

Barrier-Free Showers

Barrier-free entries create easy walk-in or roll-in access. Tile or fiberglass surrounds can be chosen depending on needs. Different options to contain water include sloped flooring, linear drain systems, weighted shower curtains or flexible, rubber water barriers.

Tub Cut Outs

Tub Cut Outs are an inexpensive option to make the existing tub accessible. This may be performed with any material: fiberglass, steel or cast iron. A removable door is added to keep water in.

Walk In Tubs

A walk in tub is designed for scooting transfers or use of floor transfer lifts. Unlike a standard bathtub, a walk in tub has an integrated seat, doorway entrance and hydrotherapy options like air-jets and whirlpools, in addition to heated seats for comfort.

Shower/Bath Transfer Systems

The purpose of a shower/bath transfer system is to provide access without remodeling. Customizable with straps and lateral supports, they can have optional tilt or recline features. The track system passes over the tub barrier, and the chair can be wheeled over to the toilet where there’s an integrated commode opening. A commode pan insert is also available.

Bathtub Lifts

Battery-operated bathtub lifts mechanically lower the user into the tub and lift them up to sitting. Lifts come with varied heights and weight capacities and are water-safe.
