Drop Down Support Rails - The Alternative To Grab Bars & Floor-To-Ceiling Poles

Posted On: September 28, 2018 by National Seating & Mobility in: Aids to Daily Living, Bath Safety, Fall Prevention, Home Care, Medical Equipment, SelfCare Home Health Products

Grab bars & floor-to-ceiling poles are two of our most popular bathroom safety items; they're safe, sturdy & can be installed almost anywhere in the bathroom. They provide a secure handhold to assist in getting up & down from the toilet, in & out of the tub & navigating around the bathroom. However, there are situations where a grab bar or floor-to-ceiling pole can't be installed, or just won't work in a particular bathroom setup.

Even a Triple Roll!

Posted On: May 18, 2018 by National Seating & Mobility in: Bath Safety, Fall Prevention, Raised Toilet Seat, SelfCare Home Health Products

We turned this client's bathroom from a danger zone into a safe and stylish space in just 1 hour. We added a raised toilet seat, an angled grab bar and a grab bar disguised as a toilet paper holder in the toilet area. We installed grab bars in the shower, along with a handheld shower and shower chair. This client (who had been afraid to bathe or shower after having two falls in the past weeks) was now able to safely and securely shower without worrying.

Curved Ceiling Track Install - Bed to Toilet

Posted On: August 13, 2015 by National Seating & Mobility in: Bath Safety, Ceiling Tracks, Home Care, Lifts

Recently our Vancouver team installed a curved ceiling track to easily move a client from their bedroom (wheelchair or bed) to directly over the toilet in the bathroom.

The curved track was easily the best option, in this case, to avoid having to do 2 transfers. Many nursing agencies require ceiling track lifts before their employees can work in your home.

We rent, sell and service patient lifts including portable ceiling track systems. Contact us to provide a free...
