Clients who’ve suffered a stroke, partial paralysis or have neuromuscular disorders may find the Dependa-Bar to offer life-changing support. A standard grab bar placed on the left side wall of someone with left sided paralysis will provide no help. Where as, the Dependa-Bar, can be pivoted open in front of the user to provide safe, centralized and well-balanced support for someone with partial paralysis to shower independently.
A grab bar with a textured surface offers better gripping when the bar is wet. Through the process of “knurling”, we cut a diamond pattern directly into the metal.
We recommend that grab bar mounting screws be inspected and tightened on a regular basis.
