The Different Kinds Of Bathroom Safety Equipment
At CSA Medical Supply it is our goal to offer our customers essential bathroom safety products that will help them comfortable and safely use there bathroom. In order to do this we offer the following products.
Bath benches allow the user to sit on a structural sound surface while they bath. This greatly reduces the risk of falling and injuring themselves while bathing. Bath Benches can be used in both a shower and bath tub. Before ordering a bath bench please know the measurements of your bath tub or shower enclosure.
Commode chairs are designed to help individuals with limited mobility use the bathroom safely and comfortable. A commode chair acts as a toilet for individuals who have difficulty getting on and off the toilet. Commode chairs are also designed to be used inside the shower to allow comfortable and safe bathing.
Grab bars are designed to be installed inside the bathroom and aid in stabilizing the user while they sit or stand. Grab bars are a must have safety feature for anyone who has balancing issues and should be installed by the toilet and inside the shower or bath tub . We offer both drillable and no drill grab bars.
Bathing can be one of the most difficult and dangerous times for wheelchair stricken patients. By using a transfer bench a caretaker can safely transport a patient out of there wheelchair. Not only does a transfer bench lower the risk of injury to the patient, but it also significantly lowers the changes of the caretaker injuring themselves as well.
A raise toilet seat or "elevated toilet seat" is designed to help individuals who have difficulty sitting and getting up from the toilet. A raised toilet extends the height of the actual toilet there by reducing the distance the user has to travel to get on and off the toilet. By extending the height of the toilet the user has much less risk of injuring themselves versus a traditional toilet seat.
Shower sprays work by diverting water from the fixed shower into a handheld shower sprayer. This allows the caretaker to easily bath there patient while they are seated in a shower commode chair, or shower bench. At CSA Medical Supply we offer a wide variety of shower sprays.
One of the main reasons the bathroom is such a dangerous place is because of the high risk of slips and falls. By using a bathroom safety mat on the floor, and inside the shower you are greatly reducing your risk of falling. Bathroom safety mats work by increasing your foot's traction on slippery surfaces such as tile.
Bathroom lifts are a much more safe and convenient way to transfer patients from there wheelchair for bathing. By using a bathroom lift instead of manually lifting the patient a caregiver is lowering there risks of injuring themselves and their patient.
