About Us

Grab Bars, Etc. was established in 1996 and is owned by Licensed & Certified Occupational Therapy Professionals, bringing with them an expansive knowledge base from the realm of rehabilitation.  This uniquely qualifies and positions the company to work with people that are returning home post-hospitalization and need expert guidance to safely set up homes with attention to new or existing disabilities or handicaps.

Terry Gesell

Founder, Senior Partner

My name is Terry Gesell and I am the founder and senior partner of Grab Bars, Etc., a limited liability company with over two decades of experience installing independent living products.  Having a career working as an occupational therapy provider and as an assistive technology specialist has allowed me to help others to achieve greater functional independence, and in many cases, make an enormous impact on improving their quality of life.  As a professional installer of grab bars, ramps, and other durable medical equipment, I take great consideration of my client’s home environmental needs to determine just the right assistive device and the best placement for the most functional outcome.  I know that those I provide services for are depending on my professional advice, especially after many of them are returning home from a major illness or injury requiring rehabilitative care.

Thank you for helping my mom be safer in her home. After you installed grab bars in the shower and bathroom, she was able to use both independently and without fear of falling. With your expertise and knowledge, we knew we were in the right hands.

Our Products

I am an RN that works in the community and I am asked for assistance with grab bar placement at times by the patient or their family. The staff with Grab Bars, Etc. have always been very friendly and prompt with their service. They are also very thorough and make sure that the bars are placed in secure locations.
