Hand rails

A permanent fixture to the structure of a property to offer support to a person if trying to adjust position or steady themself. Most are attached to a wall and require a person to have sufficient arm strength and hand function to be able to hold it. It may require fixing in place therefore it is important to consider the strength of the wall and whether it is an internal or external wall.

Bath lifts
