Product Description

Dignity. Convenience. Possibilities.

The Rifton Support station brings new dignity, convenience and possibilities to hygiene care for people with disabilities.

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.

Self-assisted transfers


support-station-feature-elbow-curves[1]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.

Adjustable height and tilt


support-station-feature-angle-adjustment[1]Adjust the trunk board angle using the upper handles. Adjust the trunk board height using the lower handles with safety trigger. The trunk board adjusts from 26″ to 45″ above the floor.


support-station-feature-height-adjustment[1]Numbered calibrations indicate height of trunk board from the floor. Adjust trunk board height by using the lower pair of black handles on the Support Station frame. A safety trigger prevents accidental release of the height adjustment handle.

Pivot or fixed configurations


support-station-feature-pivot-configuration[1]Choose a pivot or fixed configuration.

Pivot configuration:
When installed without the kneeboard, the Support Station can be pivoted to aid transfers from a wheelchair to a fixed toilet or commode. 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.


support-station-feature-fixed-configuration[1]Fixed Configuration:

With the comfortable kneeboard in place for leverage, the client using this changing station can remain in an upright, forward-leaning position for convenient clothing adjustment, hygiene care, transfer to a rolling commode or shower chair or simply for diaper changing.

The client’s torso rests comfortably on the padded trunk board, with only as much weight-bearing through the legs as the user can comfortably tolerate. Even non-weight-bearing adults have experienced success in using this type of changing table.


Folds for storage


support-station-folds-flat-for-storage[1]The Support Station folds up flat against the wall when not in use.

Upright positioning


support-station-feature-upright-positioning[1]In either configuration, the Support Station trunk board can be adjusted by sliding it up or down the vertical posts so that it is either horizontal or vertical to the floor—or at any angle in between. Thus a client can be encouraged to assume a more upright posture.


support-station-feature-upright-positioning-2[1]After a simple transfer, even a large, non-weight-bearing client is in a comfortable, more dignified and accessible position for hygiene care with the help of the Support Station.

Non-weight-bearing transfers


support-station-feature-nonweightbearing-transfers[1]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.
