The Rifton Support Station brings new dignity, convenience and possibilities to hygiene care for people with disabilities.
With the Support Station, even partially weight-bearing individuals can undergo 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.
With the Support Station, clients can assist in the sit-to-stand transfer, using their own strength and skills to participate in their care. Over time, adolescents and adults using the Support Station can 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 disabled individuals and their caregivers

- Adjustable height and tilt - The height and angle of the trunk board can be adjusted to accommodate a wide range of users with varying degrees of weight-bearing ability.

Fold for storage - The support station folds up flat against the wall when not in use.
CHOOSE YOUR DESIGN:
The Support Station enables even large, partially weight bearing clients to meet toileting needs with dignity and convenience. The client assists in the sit-to-stand transfer using hand slots, elbow curves and optional handholds. When upright, the client's torso rests comfortably on the padded trunk board; minimal weight bearing occurs through the legs. Using the support strap for additional security, the caregiver can easily adjust clothing for toileting. With regular use of the Support Station, client strength may improve for increased independence in transfer.
For the great majority of users, the Support Station is used in its fixed design configuration with Kneeboard. In this stationary, stand-alone configuration, the comfortable Kneeboard provides leverage for the user during transfer. The padded Trunk Board can be set at the desired height and angle. The user can remain in the upright, forward-leaning position for clothing adjustment and hygiene care or transfer to a rolling commode or shower chair, then return to previous seating. For clients with adequate lower-body mobility, the Support Station can be used in its pivot design without the Kneeboard. In this configuration, it aids transfer from wheelchair to a fixed toilet. While in the horizontal position, the padded trunk board can pivot 180 degrees. Supported by the Trunk Board, the user can then move his or her feet in an arc to pivot nearer toward toilet. The hand slots can then be used to lower to the toilet. The pivot configuration is ideal for users with significant lower-body control and mobility. But for most users, the fixed design will be the appropriate choice. Refer to the Product Guide for further directions regarding installation for both uses of the Rifton Support Station.
