Dignity. Convienience. 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.
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.

- 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.
