The Anchor Family

Versatile and Portable Grab Bars and Anchors

Portable Anchors for Stabilisation for Those with Disabilities

Anchors are hand grips and portable grab bars for upper extremity stabilization of people with disabilities. These safety hand holds attach with industrial strength suction cups, so they are portable and positionable.

All Rifton anchors are versatile, portable, durable, and can be positioned on any clean, smooth, flat surface. Providing upper extremity stabilization, Rifton Anchors may be beneficial for head and trunk control, as well as allowing increased function of the other arm. These anchors provide a secure, temporary support, and are impervious to hard, constant use.
The industrial-strength, 4" diameter suction cups, when attached to a smooth surface, do not slip or shift. Anchors are built of our strongest plastic: you'll be getting your money's worth for a long time to come!
