Choosing the right safety rail is important for complete protection in the bathroom. Selection will depend on several factors such as age, weight and situation. One person’s requirement will differ from another’s. Need-based selection should include the user’s health. If the person has limited dexterity owing to arthritis or a disability, then the safety rail for showers should have a comfortable grip with adequate space between the wall surface and the rail. For a more secure grip, a smaller sized rail would be preferable. Someone with visual impairment can opt for colored shower grab bars which make them stand out from the color of the wall and helps identification easier. Selection will depend on the color of the wall because the safety rail should be in contrast with it. Rail positioning or shower grab bars placement will also play an important role in selection.
