Fold-up Supports

Fold-up Supports are a must-have balance-assist aid. The space-saving design is ideal for installation next to a toilet or sink, where it’s important to have a steady handhold but also a clear approach path. In addition, the parallel trombone-slide shaped bar permits many holding and leveraging positions that help users maneuver safely with increased stability.

When swung against a wall, all Fold-up Supports are securely held in the upright position by a clamping mechanism, yet release easily with a slight tug when a user chooses to swing them into the “ready” position.

White and blue supports are powder-coated steel for a durable, protective, water resistant finish. The stainless steel model is totally waterproof. Adjustable leg versions, by far the most popular, offer height adjustments in ¾″ increments to accommodate a wide range of personal use preferences, and a fine-tune foot allows for setting the equipment to the exact height to suit an individual’s needs.

  • Flexible, convenient support for challenging situations
  • Adjustable leg and fixed leg models support up to 440 lbs.; no-leg model supports up to 220 lbs.
  • Adjustable leg models adjust in ¾" increments
  • Adjustable leg models have a fine-tune foot for +/- ½" micro-adjustments
