Top 5 Bathroom Safety Products to Keep You Safe

Top 5 Bathroom Safety Products to Keep You Safe

The bathroom is one of the most dangerous rooms in your home. Many injuries occur from slips and falls on wet and slippery floors. That is why people with limited mobility face many challenges while using the bathroom or showering. Bathroom safety equipment is particularly important as it ensures a safe environment and reduces the risk of serious injuries. Below, we will give you a list of some of the most important safety products to keep you safe. 

1. Grab Bars  

Many slip-and-fall accidents occur in the bathrooms of our homes, especially in the shower. Making a small addition to your bathroom, like installing a grab bar, can prevent injuries and keep you safe. Installing grab bars around the perimeter of the bathroom, in the shower, even next to your toilet can give you confidence, comfort and stability when entering your own bathroom. Grab bars are far sturdier than towel bars, so when you lose your balance, they can help you regain it and prevent a bad fall. 

2. Bath Bench & Bath Chair 

If you ever feel afraid to take a bath or shower because the fear of falling is on your mind, a bath bench or chair can help put your mind at ease. Bath benches decrease the chance of falling by providing a safe area in a slippery shower or bath. With a bath bench, you can feel more independent and take that warm shower you deserve. A bonus feature of bath benches is that you can fold them up and take them with you if you need to! 

3. Toilet Seat Riser 

Many falls that happen in the bathroom occur when someone uses the toilet. A low toilet seat means that the user must lower themselves down further, and this increases the likelihood of slipping and falling. While grab bars and other items may help with this issue, a raised toilet seat is an incredibly useful solution. The added height of the raised seat will put less stress on your joints. Not only will they help with lowering to the toilet seat, but they will also help you stand more easily as well. With a lower risk of falling, it gives a greater sense of independence when looking after hygiene. 

4. Bath Mat 

For people with mobility issues, a slippery bathroom floor can cause safety problems. Along with grab bars, non-slip mats are a great addition to any home. Bath mats can be used in the shower and outside the shower. They are especially important in the shower where floors are wet, soapy and slippery. Traditional bath mats increase fall risk because they are likely to slide or even slip up. That is why it is important to make sure that you find one suited to your safety needs. 

5. Removeable Handheld Shower Head  

While handheld shower heads can be beneficial for any age, those with limited mobility benefit the most from them. Most shower heads cannot be raised or lowered. With a handheld shower head, the attached hoses can come in many different lengths. Because of the long hose, it can be a better choice for people who use a shower seat due to their mobility. Allowing the mobility impaired to clean themselves effectively helps them keep their independence and shower without help.
