Life Stories

I liked the first one so much I just ordered a second!

 

 

 

"I've had several foot surgeries over the years and have had to try to stand in the shower balancing my weight on which ever was my "good foot" at the time. I really needed something to grab hold of to help me safely stand. I bought one of you competitor's grab bar at a big box store only to find out it wouldn't fit onto the 4" tiles in my bathroom. The cup spacing and diameter was off. I could get one cup to kind of fit onto a tile but the other cup landed on a seam no matter which way I turned it 

I was so happy to find your 4" tile model with the adjustable length. I liked the first one so much that I just ordered a second one for the back wall of my shower stall."

I doubt that I could have stood less than a minute in the shower if I did not have the Bridge Medical grab bar.

 

 

 

"I had a knee replacement and there was some question regarding safety in the shower. 

Prior to the surgery, I ordered the grab bar and installed it in our shower stall. The portability is what sold me. I did NOT want to drill holes in the shower stall and install a permanent grab bar. Also, the location of the bar was in question. 

I had to wait ten days after the surgery before I could shower. The day of the first shower was pure pleasure. I hung on to the grab bar and let that warm water flow for a good ten minutes. The previous ten days, all I could have were sponge baths - often called a submarine douche. Very incomplete!! 

I doubt that I could have stood less than a minute in the shower if I did not have the Bridge Medical grab bar."

I would highly recommend these to anyone looking for a product like this.

"We purchased 4 of these suction cup grab bars for my Mother-in-law who had broken her hip and need extra stability in her bath room. I mounted 2 in her shower, 1 near her toilet, and 1 on her sink area. She loves them. We had looked at some of the cheaper models, but wanted something that would not slip or come loose.  I would highly recommend these to anyone looking for a product like this."

I think it difference has to do with the rubber Pads; the Pads on the Bridge Medical are very thick and strong. That must be why they work so much better than the others.

"Purchased the Bridge Medical Single Grip for my Dad who still lives at home alone. He still gets along very well but I guess it was to make me feel better. I attached it to his Fiberglass Shower Surround about a few months ago and it's holding just as strong as ever. 

I tried the cheaper versions first but Dad could pull them right off - I guess you get what you pay for.

I'm amazed how well this product works. Seems like I could pull down the shower wall before it would ever release. It has made life for my mother so much easier.

"I bought this for my mother who was having problems walking. her strength has diminished with age so she was having problems stepping over the bath tub to get into the shower. I thought this product seemed expensive but decided my mother's health was more important. I'm amazed how well this product works. Seems like I could pull down the shower wall before it would ever release. It has made life for my mother so much easier."

I think this is a great product.

 

 

 

 

"I bought this for my mom to help her stand up in the shower. She needs to sit while I bathe her and needed something to grab onto when she stood up. Our shower is fiberglass and we couldn't drill any holes in it to use the conventional shower bars. I have had it in my shower for almost 2 months now and it hasn't moved at all. It's not overly big and bulky. I'm thinking of buying another one so she can use both hands to pull herself up. I think this is a great product."

Purchased to provide shower grips for my father. Worked extremely well.

"Purchased to provide shower grips for my father. Worked extremely well - he is not lavish with praise and thinks they are great. Trivial to install. I selected this over some of the cheaper alternatives because it looked the sturdiest."
- E.M., Texas

 

Works great and is easy to install!

"We bought these for my Grandma so she had something to hold onto in the shower. Works great and is easy to install!"

It has never come loose and has been on the shower for several weeks.

"We are very pleased with the suction shower grip. It has never come loose and has been on the shower for several weeks. We do check it as recommended but have never had to redo it. Would definitely recommend it to anyone needing support in the tub or shower.."

A quality product that once demonstrated, sells itself.

"We are completely satisfied with Bridge Medical’s Portable Grab Bars. I just wish I could keep more in stock for our local visits. It is a quality product, that once demonstrated, sells itself."

Invaluable and a life saver in the shower and getting in and out of the tub.

"Having had two total knee replacements, I found the Single Grip Portable Grab Bar to be invaluable and somewhat of a lifesaver in the shower and getting in and out of the tub. The portability allows me to use the device virtually any place in the home or while I'm traveling during the winter months down to warmer climates. I would definitely endorse this product for anyone who might need a little help doing normal required functions as they progress through rehabilitation or find themselves in need of every day help." -Frank M.

 

This product has been failure proof since day one!

“I am happy to say that a member of my family was fortunate enough to obtain a Single Grip Portable Grab Bar. Because this person has had a number of medical procedures recently, getting around the house has been a bit more of a challenge than it may have been in the past. There are a number of ways to address this, but not one that costs less than $150. To retrofit a home with permanent bars would have cost well into the thousands, but this bar is perfectly mobile and can be placed virtually anywhere in the home where someone might need an extra hand at a particular time. As well, this product has been failure proof from day one. It has not even slipped a single time with the many times it has been used. That is very important since a failure like that could potentially cause significant injury. I would recommend this product to anyone who is considering a low cost and highly effective temporary solution for themselves or for someone who is in need. Thank you, Bridge Medical.” - Randy S., Fresno, CA

 

Your product has changed both our lives!

Dear Bridge-Medical:

Due to a recent stroke, my wife had lost her confidence in the shower and was forced to get help from me during her private time in the shower. Through the use of your portable grab bar, she has restored her independence and is on the road to recovery. Your product has changed our lives. Thank you and God bless." - Mark, Mobile, AL

 

Definitely worth every dollar for the value they provide!

"A big Thanks to Bridge Medical! We purchased two Single Grip Portable Grab Bars for my grandmother after she had a stroke. They've afforded her independence, mobility, and peace of mind when accessing the shower area in her bathroom. Plus, she can bring them with her when she visits us, affording her the same safety at our house without the additional investment. Definitely worth every dollar for the value they provide!" - Rick S. Stillwater MN

Sister in law who works in Occupational Therapy recommended this product.

"My father called me last month and asked if I could find him something to help him get in and out of the shower while staying at the time share. I called my sister in law who works in OT and she mentioned this product. It was just what I needed! Dad called from Florida to tell me he got the Grab Bar and has already used it in the shower. Thanks!"
- Jerold, Orlando, FL

 

Thanks for finding this device, it has meant so much to restoring his sense confidence!

"My Father had a pretty serious stroke earlier this year and has been rehabbing since then. He has about 70% strength in his leg and only about 30% in his arm. I found this product on your web site and gave the info to my Mom. She purchased him Single Grip Grab Bar for the shower and he's been using it every day since to get in and out. She called me today just now, almost emotional, to thank me for finding the device and to tell me how much it has meant to his physical and emotional well being as well as his sense of confidence. I just thought someone at your company would like to know."
