4 Reasons to choose Famica over standard toilet grab bars

People like the elderly, injured, disabled and pregnant need extra help when it comes to using the toilet. Conventional toilet safety grab bars can get the job done, but they are bulky, invasive and immobile. Therefore, Famica might be more suitable for you.

Imagine this, you have fallen, fractured your leg and the doctor says you need to spend the next three months of your life in a cast. Aside from the pain, getting about is hard, and so is using the toilet. The toilet is wet, squeezy and dangerous. One wrong move is all it takes to land yourself another three-month MC. Is that something you want to risk?

Anyways, you need to visit the toilet multiple times a day and you probably want to avoid suffering another tragic fall. You need a short-term solution, something to give you greater support in the toilet. You could ask your parents or spouse to assist you, but it could be awkward because people need their privacy. You might have seen grab bars in public handicapped toilets for assisting people. They could work for you, but conventional grab bars…
