Title: ADJUSTABLE GRAB BAR APPARATUS
Abstract:
The invention provides an adjustable grab bar apparatus that allows a user to easily and quickly position the grab bar to suit his/her particular requirements and capabilities, without the need for tools and/or additional hardware. Adjustment may be done by users with impaired dexterity and/or limited strength, since adjustment is accomplished using a simple interface such as a manual crank, a switch (e.g., push-button or touch sensitive), a foot pedal, etc. Embodiments include a self-locking feature wherein the grab bar remains secure at any user- selected position, and adjustment is a simple one-step procedure in that there is no need to disengage a locking mechanism prior to adjusting the grab bar position and/or engage a locking mechanism after adjusting the grab bar position.
