A shower rail is a safety device made to help an individual access a tool to hold onto in case of a minor fall or slip. Grab rails are made to help patients in moving to and from the bathroom; they can also help prevent falls in bathtubs or the shower. However, many are found in hospitals, aged care institutions, and homecare settings.

A bathroom handle can help maintain balance, decrease fatigue when standing, and reduce weight when moving.
When placed next to a bathroom, they might help in the wheelchair moving to the toilet seat and then back to the wheelchair. Also, they are beneficial to individuals who have difficulties in lowering themselves down or maintaining a standing position. Shower grab rails can be very vital in facilitating balance-related conditions. When applied in a bathtub or the shower, bathroom suction handles can help maintain balance when standing or moving around, help in moving into and out of closed areas, and ultimately help reduce falls and slips.
Additionally, shower grab rails are commonly used with other devices to enhance safety; for instance, a shower chair is placed near a shower rail will effortlessly assist in reducing fall prevention. And when positioned beside a toilet, the toilet raiser will automatically complement the grab rail.
A bathroom handle or grab handle is also connected to the wall with the application of suction cups; these sturdy yet mobile bars can effortlessly be connected and removed without causing any damage to the wall or needing a permanent repair on the wall. It is imperative to confirm the suitability of the chosen location before trying to mount or apply this type of rail.
