Support Station

Providing increased confidence and dignity

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.

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.
