Francie was the first to use the Support Station. Now she comes into the ladies' room, transfers out of her wheelchair and stands independently using the Support Station. We offer help with clothing - otherwise she takes care of herself. The look of pride and dignity on her face is priceless. Not to mention the staff benefits: elimination of physical injury and back-strain due to lifting, decreased fatigue and stress, and so much time saved.

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 disabled individuals and their caregivers.
