Grab rails are safety devices designed to enable a person to maintain balance, lessen fatigue while standing and provide assistance when moving between a sitting and standing position.

The benefits of installing grab bars in the bathroom include:

- Providing a safe way for people to move from sitting on the toilet or in their wheelchair to standing.

- Providing a safe way for people to move from sitting on the toilet or in their wheelchair to standing.

- Providing support when using the sink, shower or bathtub.

- Preventing falls by providing handholds when transferring from one surface or position to another such as going from sitting down on a chair to standing up again.

Grab bars are usually installed in the shower or bathtub for people who have mobility issues or for those who need help getting in and out of the tub. Also used by people who have difficulty with mobility such as the elderly, disabled, or those recovering from surgery. They can also be used by people who have balance problems due to a temporary illness such as vertigo.

The bariatric grab rail is used by people with weight-related health conditions, such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and arthritis. It is also used by those recovering from hip replacement surgery.

They are usually installed in the bathroom at heights that are easy to reach while seated on a toilet or while standing in the shower.
