For my shower I have a medal grab bar on the side entering the shower, in the shower I have one on the middle of the back wall. This is one is not medal because my shower not one where the wall is attached. So the grab bar I have is the kind you phasin to the wall like suction cups but there is a problem with these they do come off which is very unsafe just wanted to say that I still use mine but I do not put my full weight on them. Oh one more thing I always have a bath mat on the shower floor. If any one else has any thing that they use I would like to hear about them.
