Safety Supplies for the Bathroom
Safety in the home is a common concern amongst seniors. As we age, our physical mobility tends to decrease, which can cause trips and falls that otherwise wouldn’t occur. Stairs, entrances, and the bathroom all are areas where seniors can fall. According to the U.S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in four Americans over the age of 65 fall every year, and falls are the leading cause of fatal injury.
Perkins Medical Supply is a leader of medical supplies and home medical equipment, from walking aids, such as canes and crutches, to wheelchairs, sleep therapy devices, and home oxygen supplies. Our mission is to make your life as a senior easier by offering the best mobility equipment and supplies for your needs. Below, we’ll go over some of the home safety supplies we offer for your bathroom that can help you stay safe. Visit us online, or visit our Vero Beach store today!
HOME MEDICAL SUPPLIES & DURABLE MEDICAL EQUIPMENT FOR YOUR BATHROOM
Toilet Safety Frame
Getting on and off the toilet can be a challenge for many seniors. There are no arms to help you like in a chair and the height of a toilet can be a challenge in terms of using your legs for power to get on and off.
Perkins Medical Supply offers a solution to this problem with our Toilet Safety Frame with Padded Arms. Easy to install this frame features arms that you can use to push yourself up or pull yourself up off the toilet. They are padded, so your hands are comfortable and don’t slip.This durable medical equipment device takes up very little room and blends in with your decor so it doesn’t stand out. You can adjust the height of the arms to suit your frame, and it can hold up to 300 lbs of weight. This is an excellent medical aid device. Shop today!
The shower and bathtub are two places where falls for seniors frequently occur. This is because of the slippery surface created by the water and the porcelain or fiberglass material that most bathtubs are made from. There are usually no handles in showers unless you have installed them, so there’s nothing to hold onto to. All it takes is one tiny slip, and you’ve fallen, potentially causing injury.
One way to help prevent falls in the shower is to add in a shower chair or stool. These durable medical equipment give you a stable platform to sit (which is safer than standing) while getting clean. Our shower chairs and stools are adjustable, and our shower chair has a removable back and arms for easy bathing. The feet are non-slip, so they are extremely secure on the surface of the bathtub. Our shower stool features a rotating seat, making reaching for your shampoo and soap easy.
These bath safety products are easy to use and easy to remove from the bathtub so others can use it as well. Small and compact, these durable medical equipment chairs store underneath typical bathroom cupboards. If you are worried about slipping and falling in the bathtub, check out all of our bath safety products online or in our Vero Beach store today!
Bathtub Safety Rails
If you aren’t necessarily looking for a chair or stool for your bathtub to use for safety, then consider our Bathtub Safety Rail. This mobility equipment takes up very little space and can be hidden by the shower curtain. Fully-adjustable, you simply clamp the rail on the side of your bathtub and use it for support as you get in and out of the shower. You can lean your weight on it since it has a weight capacity of 300 pounds as you step in and out of the bathtub. The top has a padded grip, and the clamp is coated with non-slip rubber padding so you won’t scratch your bathtub.
One of the great features of this mobility equipment is you can easily move it from bathroom to bathroom, and you can take it with you while traveling so you won’t have to worry about falling in your hotel bathroom. You can adjust it down to its smallest setting and pack it in your suitcase. Being lightweight, it won’t add significantly to the weight of your suitcase.

Toilets tend to be standard height with a little variance between designs, but, for the most part, your toilet is at a height that is between a squat and a stand. For people without mobility issues, this is perfect. However, for those with mobility issues or as a senior, toilets can pose a significant challenge.
Our Premium Toilet Seat Riser with Removable Arms aims to solve your toilet challenges. This bath safety product raises the height of your toilet 3.5.” It comes with padded arms, making it even easier to rise from the toilet. This bath safety product attaches to the toilet for stability and security and is great for those with reduced mobility. The rails are padded for extra comfort and convenience with the entire structure being compact, which is perfect for smaller bathrooms.
