Falls are devastating to the elderly, and many falls happen in the bathroom. (Listen to this quick report on falls in the bathroom from the US Department of Health and Human Services.)

See more of our videos of supplies for independent living, including mobility devices, cushions, lift chairs, and devices for easily getting in and out of vehicles.
