This grab bar collection was designed for people with visual deficits. 

Falls are the leading cause of death and injury among the elderly and are more likely if someone has a visual issue, such as, cataracts, macular degeneration, or an aging eye. 

Improving contrast and lighting, and reducing the glare, are vital for safe and comfortable living. There are many important ways to increase the ability to see and function safely and independently in the environment. 

Colored grab bars are a necessity when designing a bathroom for someone with low vision.  High contrasts make the difference between safely being able to see the grab bars to use them and just grabbing blindly and hoping to grab something solid.

Research shows that yellow as a background for someone with macular degeneration helps contrasts to 'pop'.  As an OT I find that there always seems to be a color people with low vision can see better than other colors.  Test to see what color is best for you and yours.

For specific help tailored exactly to your disability contact an occupational therapist (OT).

This collection is a work in progress of fixtures and accessories for the home that are of good-design and made of quality materials.  We are always working to increase our collections to include beautiful fixtures to assist people in living safely and independently. 

If you have any suggestions to enlarge this collection to assist people with low vision, macular degeneration, cataracts, or any other visual issue please contact us.
