Grab Bar Installers In Orange County CA,

Grab bars are not used only for the safety purpose of public restrooms and hospitals. They also provide safety for your own home, especially in bathrooms. These bars do not just provide benefits to the elder or disabled people, but are also useful for any age group. Installing grab bars in your shower or bathtub provides extra security at the very first step in your bathroom, which are usually quite slippery.

Everyone should add grab bars to avoid injuries. These bars prevent you and your family member from falling and slipping inside the bathrooms. You can install grab bars as per your requirements; it may be horizontally, vertically or diagonally. People should always install a grab bar in the bathtub or shower to avoid injury at first step. It should be installed vertically in front of the bathtub or shower to facilitate your entry or exit. For this purpose, the bar which will work well is a smaller one. On the other hand longer bars will accommodate the users of various heights. Generally, having bars at this particular place will help to prevent the tendency to reach sliding glass doors, towel bars or other unstable fixtures in your bathroom.

To get assistance in both standing and sitting position, grab bars can also be installed near the toilet. These bars can be used in conjunction to raised toilet seat and with a chair height toilet. Mostly grab bars are installed either diagonal or horizontal direction near the toilet. Bars installed in diagonal direction might not reach between studs. To cope up with this kind of situation, users can mount it with secure mounting anchors at one or both the ends. The diagonal bars put less strain on the wrist because these are more in tune with the natural movement of wrist and hand. They provide comfortable grip for both taller and shorter users. The horizontal bars provide added stability mounted inside the shower or tub. On the other hand the diagonal bars provide added stability when you lower down to sit on the toilet seat.

OC Grab Bars was established in 2005 by Joey Bolohan. The main objective of the company is to provide quality service to their customers with honesty, integrity and respect. The owner began this company when there was a great demand for grab bars in Orange County. He noticed that the elder population is growing remarkably throughout the state including the Orange County. The products which OC Grab Bar company can install are- shower chairs, toilet safety bars, grab bars, hand held showerheads and toilets etc. All the products of the company are certified by ADA and provide 100% guarantee for life.

If you are planning to install grab bars at your home to avoid injuries, then the best place to approach is OC Grab Bars. It not only provides safety to your home, but also maintains a fashionable and awesome look.

The bathroom is the area which is mostly prone to accidents. To avoid these accidents OC Grab Bars are providing remedies to users to maintain their balance in bathrooms. These bars are available in different colors and sizes and user have a variety to choose from as per their interiors. As you grow old, the chances to fall down inside the bathroom increase and these incidents start happening very often. In a year, approx. 2,340,000 elders fall down in bathroom due to slipping or falling and get treated in the emergency room. Out of these adults, one third (aged 65 and older) were treated with fractures due to falling in the bathroom. Whereas rest of them (almost 38% of them, aged 85 and more) were hospitalized due to slipping in the bathrooms.

You can avoid your trip to the emergency room to get treatment due to falling in the bathroom. If at least 30% of the people (who had suffered a hip fracture sometimes) will install grab bars in their bathroom, they will definitely decrease the accident cases in the bathrooms. You can install them in various areas at your home according to your need, such as near the toilet, in the garage, in the shower, in the entryway to your home etc. You can install them in any direction as per your comfort level, like diagonally, horizontally or vertically.

The horizontal grab bars will provide you the ability to push upward or reach in from the entry. The horizontal bars are most commonly used during sitting in a shower chair because they are found to be a little easier to push down. The diagonal bars are usually placed at a slight angle to help the users with weak and painful arms or wrist.

Thanks to these goods, life-saving equipments are now at your of people who need them the most. There are different families of bathroom safety products and here is a rundown of some of the most indispensable items you can add either in the hospital or in the home:

Bath Chairs and Shower Benches

Providing both comfort as well as safety, these items are especially made those of you that can't stand for a shower or are far too weak to submerge themselves inside a bath tub. Bath chairs come in various shapes, colors and sizes starting from Lumex round bath stool which has a durable and rust-resistant alloy frame to Lumex Bariatric bath seat intended for those who have up to 600 pounds. of weight. Lumex bath seats can be obtained either with or with not a back rest but all have a seat height adjustable inside 1", lifetime limited warranty, tool-free assembly and made to meet the requirements regarding HCPCS code: E0245.

For example, you can choose to put in Lumex Tub-Guard or Heavy-Duty safety rails in your bath tub (aside from fiber glass tubs) if you would like an easier and safer entry/exit for your bath tub. Lumex grab bars with sizes including 12" to 32" care also there for prevent patients from slipping. And with its durable chrome plated steel along with 250 lbs. maximum capacity, these grab bars can potentially blend in with almost any bathroom decor.

Commodes

Bathroom commodes or merely commodes are basically portable toilets which don't make use of running water. A commode has wheels which may be locked to ensure protection of its user and a small container underneath which is to be cleaned right after while using the commode. This is an alternative for individuals or patients whose mobility are affected by a disease and so have difficulties going to the restroom. By using commodes, people with special conditions can now perform activities at the bedside that they formerly do using a normal bathroom. Modern bedside commodes come with different features including variable arm rest that provides both relaxation during a lateral transport.

It is usually fitted either as bubble-type raised toilet seat or lifted toilet seat with adjustable knot, which is not meant for permanent installation as this sort needs adjustments or re-tightening once weekly.

Fall Prevention in the Home

By Joey Bolohan

Taking every safety precaution you possibly can is always a wise move, especially as you age, and begin to lose your agility.  You don’t want to fall down in an inconvenient location, and find yourself unable to get yourself help to get out of your predicament.  Hiring one of the best companies in the business, such as OC Grab Bars, to perform a grab bar installation in your home is definitely the smart move to make.

You see, using handicap grab bars is an absolutely fantastic idea to reduce the rate of injury in your own home, which you can achieve with an extremely modest investment.  After all, putting up some bathroom safety bars really will end up costing you next to nothing, but if you ever slip and that bar saves you, the value will be incalculable.

At OC Grab Bars, we understand how important it is for you to maintain your independent living, which is the reason we provide the service that we do.  Knowing that you have that extra level of safety goes a long way towards ensuring that you will feel safe in your own home, and not fear the slips and falls that all too often come with advancing age.

You see, you have to consider how most falls actually happen.  They are similar in principle to automobile accidents; you are far more likely to get into a dangerous one (fall or accident) close to your own home than you are far away from where you live.  This means that the most dangerous accidents and injuries occur in the environments that are most familiar to you, and you need to be aware of this fact.

When you slip, for just a split second, what is your immediate reaction going to be?  You’re obviously going to grasp about, looking for purchase before you slip and fall.  If you don’t have grab bars installed in your bathroom, when the inevitable tumble occurs, you are going to pay for that fall in a very unpleasant way.  

Contact us at OC Grab Bars if you’re interested in speaking with one of our dedicated sales professionals about how we can help you today.

OCGrabBars: Preventing Bathroom Falls and Injuries

By Joey Bolohan

Grab bars are an essential enhancement that truly is necessary in the home of anyone over the age of 70.  Don’t let pride get in the way; you want to avoid injury, and statistically, if you’re going to take a spill, it’s likely to be in the bathroom.  This is why you need a modern, up to date grab bar installation, which can help you avoid slipping and falling, should you ever lose your balance or need support.  

If you have ever undergone joint surgery or had problems with those parts of your body, you are doubly at risk.  Believe it or not, falls account for nearly two thirds of the injuries people over 55 sustain; if you look at people aged 70+ this increases to over 80%.  One of the biggest problems is that even if your joints do work correctly, you can still lose your balance because of weakness elsewhere in your frame.

Here are three big reasons you should consider using bathroom safety bars:

• Your personal safety – No doubt about it, this is the prime concern.  When you look at it statistically, protecting yourself in the bathroom is one of the most important things you can do to ensure your ongoing good health.

• Cost – Having a custom grab bar installation probably costs less than you may imagine.  Dealing with OC Grab Bars means that you’re always going to be paying a fair price for excellent labor, parts, and installation.

• Customer service – If you have ever needed to deal with companies over the internet before, you understand that a good reputation online is worth its weight in gold.  All of our work and products have a guarantee, and our customers are always satisfied.

So if you’re interested in learning more about how you can continue independent living by contracting with OC Grab Bars to install grab bars in your bathroom or other areas of your house, contact us today.  We would love to show you how we can help increase your safety and peace of mind for a reasonable cost.

Grab Bars – Why Installing Them in your Bathroom is a Smart Move

By Joey Bolohan

As we age, we begin to take notice of certain things that we formerly took for granted.  Moving around, getting up and down stairs, and in and out of cars all gradually become more and more difficult as we get older.  You never want to take a risk with your health, and one of the things which can help mitigate one of the biggest dangers you will face is having OC Grab Bars installed in your bathroom.

It’s true; the bathroom is one of the most dangerous rooms in your house, believe it or not, particularly as you age.  You don’t want to suffer a fall in the tub, or any of the other compound accidents which can occur in a bathroom.  Having our bathroom safety bars can really allieviate any of your concerns about falling.

Whether you have us install the handicap grab bars next to your toilet, bath, or both, you and your family will both rest easier knowing that you will never be likely to take a spill in the bathroom.  It really helps you have peace of mind, knowing that you aren’t going to be trapped in your bathroom, and that you can continue to enjoy independent living for a long while yet.

There are many different models of grab bars and rails that we can help install to fit your needs.  Horizontal, vertical, even diagonal, we truly do it all.  If you have ever had surgery, particularly hip or knee replacement surgery, you need to tailor your environment to your own specific needs, and that is exactly what we do.  

Imagine if you are about to take a slip in the bathroom.  Perhaps you are getting in or out of the shower, perhaps you’re getting on or off the toilet.  Regardless of what you’re doing, and whether or not you have had to deal with recent surgery, this can really be a danger to you that the installation of a few simple grab bars can avoid.  Contact us today for more information.
