Security Guaranteed

The Support station's unique features enable even partially weight-bearing individuals to receive hygiene care or a diaper change in an upright position – making the process more dignified,  improving access to clothing and skin, and eliminating heavy lifting on the part of the caregiver.

Benefits

With the Support Station, clients assist in the sit-to-stand transfer, using their own strength and skills to participate in their care. Over time, clients using the Support Station actually improve their standing and toileting skills – paving the way for greater independence and better health. Install the Rifton Support Station to use with a rolling commode or as a transfer aid to a stationary toilet. In facilities around the country, the Support Station is making a dramatic difference for clients with disabilities and their caregivers.

See what a difference 90° can make.

  • Greater dignity and independence: Putting an end to infant-like, horizontal hygiene can have dramatic emotional benefits. Even people with very limited weight-bearing ability can now participate in their own personal care.
  • Improved safety for caregivers: Eliminating transfers to a mat or changing table means less lifting and wrestling with clothing, plus clothing and skin are more accessible – so the process is healthier for everyone.
  • Practice in strength and skill building: Using their own strength and skills to transfer and support themselves, people improve weight-bearing and motor skills over time.
  • Less time out: Faster than horizontal diapering, the Support Station lets everyone spend less time on hygiene and more time in class, in therapy or simply enjoying life.

 

Features

An innovation in toileting, the Support Station enables toilet transfers for people with physical disabilities. In consultation with therapists, Rifton designed it to allow clients to assist in their own personal hygiene, providing them greater dignity and independence. At the same time, the Rifton Support Station provides benefits to staff by reducing staff injury due to heavy lifting and difficult transfers.

Rifton Support Station Non-weight bearing transfers

Non-weight bearing transfers

With the trunk board in a nearly horizontal position, even a large, non-weight-bearing client is able to use the Rifton Support Station for toilet transfers. A support strap with buckle lends added safety while a caregiver adjusts clothing.

Rifton Support Station Self-assisted transfers

Self-assisted transfers

Self-assisted transfers are enabled by the Rifton Support Station. Hand slots, elbow curves, and optional handholds on the padded trunk board provide versatile options for self-support to accomodate clients' varying needs. Even users with limited hand control can assist in transfer from their wheelchair to a toilet or commode, or by remaining upright for diapering.

In the horizontal position, the padded trunk board can pivot 180°, enabling the client to safely move his or her feet in an arc - often independently - and comfortably transfer to the toilet. Located conveniently at the top of the white slotted trunk board, the lever controlling rotation can be operated by either caregiver or client.
