Bridge Medical is the industry leader in Portable Grab Bar technology and innovation - but we had help along the way. We trace our roots back to 1996 when our spiritual founder suffered a paralyzing stroke that left him unstable both in movement and confidence.
Through his personal experience with existing medical equipment at the time, he foresaw the burgeoning need for reliable, sturdy, and portable home medical devices. Specifically, he needed a Portable Grab Bar that could go with him in his travels, be removed and replaced at his will and most importantly, also work in his shower at home.
Personal Need Turns to Business Opportunity
After months of research, he discovered a new, relatively unknown product and began distributing the first generation of portable grab bars. This distributorship, small at the time, blossomed into a self-sustaining and successful business that had just begun cracking the surface. The industry was in its infancy and the solution had not yet touched most of the population. So the writing was on the wall: There had to be a much better way. Better looks. Stronger Rubber. Telescoping Handles. Pivoting Heads. More options. Better Safety. More Freedom!
Enter Bridge Medical
