Person holding on to a vertical grab bar for stabilitySafety Poles for Residents in Marquette, MI, and Throughout the Upper Peninsula

Older adults, disabled individuals, and those with limited mobility and balance problems generally have difficulty getting up from a sitting position. They may also be at risk for falls when they exit the shower. These are major concerns—a fall can seriously injure an older person. Thankfully, there are accessibility aids that can help: safety poles. Similar to grab bars, these fixtures can provide extra stability during position changes. Barrier Free Store is the company to turn to in Marquette, Michigan, and throughout the Upper Peninsula for security poles and other accessibility devices.

What Are Safety Poles?

A safety pole is a vertical bar that is installed from floor to ceiling and aids individuals in pulling themselves up from a sitting position or stabilizing themselves as they exit a shower or get off the toilet. The devices are usually tension-mounted, meaning they won’t require drilling or screws to mount them. Additionally, this means they can be moved between different rooms easily. Moreover, some safety poles have the option to mount a grab bar on the side to add extra stability.

“My dad’s strength deteriorated over a short period of time due to medicines he needed to take. Your company provided prompt service. We most appreciated the person who had the foresight to have a stair lift in stock because my dad basically needed an emergency installation for his safety and mine, so we could safely get upstairs. Thank you to everyone for your kindness and quick assistance at a difficult time. My dad loves the lift!”
