Mr. Grab Bar was created in 1998 by Howard Cohen and Anita Cohen. Howard, a licensed Florida Physical Therapist, grab bar designer, and professional grab bar installation specialist, worked primarily with seniors in the home care setting, a population at high risk for falls. Anita, with her background in education and public relations helped transform the company into a well oiled machine. Howard and Anita, witnessed first hand how unexpected falls impacted the lives of individuals and realized that many of these events could be easily prevented with a few simple modifications in the home. Since then, Mr. Grab Bar's primary focus has been the provision and design of grab bars, empowering devices which provide a secure hand hold in the bath tub or shower, and offer enhanced stability while standing or sitting.
A bathroom fall can happen to anyone, and at any age. Mr Grab Bar is dedicated to making communities aware of the need for fall prevention. In 20 years, Mr. Grab Bar has installed over 125,000 grab bars in various communities throughout Florida and is currently developing a network of associate grab bar installers operating independently in other parts of the country.
Mr. Grab Bar is both a
grab bar installation company, and reliable supplier of grab bars in bulk to installers, homeowners and facilities throughout the country.
