Bathroom Safety Modification Options

Grab Bars

Balance is integral to maintaining bathroom safety, as it reduces the likelihood of slipping, tripping, or falling. Grab bars installed throughout strategic areas in the bathroom offer balance assistance in trouble areas. 101 Mobility Columbus’s experts will help you identify the best areas for grab bar placement, and can ensure that your grab bars are properly installed to support the necessary weight load.

Bath Transfer Benches

Bath transfer benches provide an additional level of safety for individuals who have difficulty stepping into the bathtub, or standing for long periods of time. 101 Mobility Columbus offers a variety of bath transfer benches, ranging from simple shower chairs to more complex systems that allow the user to sit down outside of the shower and slide effortlessly into the shower. While transfer benches enhance bathroom safety, they should always be used in conjunction with grab bars in order to ensure that users maintain balance at all times.

Most bath safety benches and seats are easily transportable, and can be stored away when not in use for those who are concerned with bathroom appearances.

Walk-In Tubs & Barrier-Free Showers

Walk-in tub solutions can be installed in place of standard bathtubs, or retro-fitted into existing tubs. They utilize hinged doors that can be opened to step into the tub with little to no ledge to step over, and closed to create a water-tight seal for bathing. Some walk-in tub models also include raised seats to prevent users from having to lower themselves down into the tub, and may have jets for additional therapeutic benefits.

Barrier-free shower modifications modify a bathroom to remove the tub, leaving the shower intact. They may have low ledges (one to two inches high) or smooth surfaces, accessible by wheelchairs and shower transfer chairs.

Whether you need an easily accessible bathtub for therapeutic benefits or a wheelchair-accessible shower, 101 Mobility Columbus’s experts can help you find the best solution to fit your needs and enhance bathroom safety.

Toilet Safety Modifications

For individuals who have trouble bending or standing from a seated position, toilet transfers can be especially dangerous. Toilet safety modifications take the trouble out of toile transfers with just a few simple adjustments.

Toilet safety frames attach to existing toilets to provide sturdy armrests. The adjustable frame provides crucial comfort and support during toilet transfers.

Raised toilet seats may also be attached to existing toilets with only minor modifications. The raised seats reduce the amount of bending required during toilet transfers. They should be used in conjunction with toilet safety frames or professionally-installed grab bars to enhance toilet transfer safety.

Additional Bathroom Modifications

For individuals with additional bathroom safety requirements that lie outside of our standard bathroom safety equipment, we offer a range of bathroom modifications. From door widening to allow wheelchairs through, to accessible sinks and overhead patient lifts, our experts can recommend a range of solutions to ensure safety and independence in the bathroom.
