Because I have to sit in a shower chair due to leg issues, I have to buy a hand-held shower head with an on-off switch but I also need the ability to hang it up low down when I'm done. Does the hang up thing come with it when purchased or is that something I would buy extra. Can anyone recommend one? What's the "hang up" thing technically called so I can research them? Thanks. My occupational therapist recommended the shower head with these two features but he's out of the country right now so I can't call him to ask.

You are best to go to home improvement stores (like Home Depot, Lowes, etc.), go to their plumbing department, then see what they have/ask.

Also stores which sell only plumbing stuff (larger cities only) will have a larger selection and will be more knowledgeable of what all is available.

Also a medical equipment store will know. I bought my shower chair, new walker, and a great drink holder for the walker from one.

I bought one from Lowes, has a bar that runs from the original shower head, drops about 2 feet, and the second hand-held shower head with hose has a fitting that hooks onto this bar.
