Dependa Bar from Healthcraft
Dependa Bars offer an unparalleled range of bathtub and shower support. Along with providing traditional grab bar support, the Dependa-Bar features pivot and lock technology allowing for 5 different positions (one every 45 degrees). This means the Dependa Bar is where you need it when bathing or showering, and can be locked out of the way against the wall when not being used. A revolutionary product which combines the sturdiness of a wall mounted grab bar and the functionality of a dual support rail that moves in step during standing and transferring in the bathroom. Conveniently locks against the wall when bathtub is used by family members who do not need the support.

Dependa Bar Installation Tips:
Clients who've suffered a stroke, partial paralysis or have neuromuscular disorders may find the Dependa Bar to offer life-changing support. A standard grab bar placed on the left side wall of someone with left sided paralysis will provide no help. Where as, the Dependa Bar, can be pivoted open in front of the user to provide safe, centralized and well-balanced support for someone with partial paralysis to shower independently. A grab bar with a textured surface offers better gripping when the bar is wet. Through the process of "knurling", we cut a diamond pattern directly into the metal. We recommend that grab bar mounting screws be inspected and tightened on a regular basis.
