In 2010, the Department of Justice expanded existing ADA (Americans with Disabilities) laws to include accessible design for the physically disabled in public and commercial buildings called the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design. This includes designing public bathrooms to be easily accessible for the physically disabled.
The accessible designs used for public bathrooms are also available for home use through retailers like Kingston Brass, who carry ADA-compliant home versions of bathroom accessories. The ADA laws require shower areas to provide seating, support bars, and hand showers in order to provide safe accommodations for bathing. While seated, a handheld showerhead can help an individual or caregiver to provide thorough cleaning with more control over water pressure and coverage than a wall-mounted showerhead.
