If you have a hard time getting up out of bathtub or shower, a shower bar is perfect. A shower grab bar is simply a bar that can be easily installed on your bathroom wall’s surface. Once installed, you are able to grab onto the shower bar in order to pull yourself up. This is indeed very helpful as some people have a very hard time getting back up. A shower bar comes in all kinds of styles, with majority being stainless steel. You can also place the bar elsewhere such as beside your toilet.
