[00:00:26.00] Narrator: This toileting system is easy to use, quick to clean and simple to adjust. It is designed to help the user complete the task quickly, and to help you make transfers smoothly. All parts come off and go on easily to help you meet the needs of each user. These head supports can be fastened on and adjusted easily. Chest and hip straps help with positioning and support. These two strips of hook and loop allow the straps to be placed where they are needed. All parts are removable. As the user develops more skills, straps and supports can be taken off.
[00:01:31.00] Narrator: This toileting system is fully adjustable. No tools, just simple click adjustments. The back adjusts at three different positions. It can also be moved forward or back to change seat depth. Comfort, security and positioning are key to successful toileting. That's why we make the deflector soft and flexible. The seat has a special contour to keep the user centered, and the ischial shelf helps keep the hips back. Together with armrests and the anterior support, a slightly forward leaning position can be obtained encouraging bowel movement. For use as a stand-alone commode use this no-spill, extra-deep pan. It slides in easily from the front or from the back. Because all parts are plastic, cleaning is easy. Simply remove those parts that need cleaning, or place the whole system in your shower to clean it. Like this, it makes a useful shower chair. Quality casters make it easy to move. All four casters lock for safe transferring. If all you need is a little extra support on the toilet take the seat and the back off the frame and mount it like this. This bar comes standard with all systems and requires a one-time installation on your toilet.
[00:05:31.22] Narrator: Rifton's toilet system comes in two sizes. The large one has a larger seat and deflector, with a choice of a high or a low back. Both the large and the small seat will fit in the same frame.

[00:05:46.19] Gail Hancock-Huttle, Special Education Teacher: We have a child that's very, very involved physically. We were able for the first time, to put her on a toilet because she had the arm rests, and could support herself because she had the strapping system. She's one of those children that had difficulty tolerating sitting upright. She was able to work her body. She was very, very happy to be able to sit on a toilet for the first time; she's ten years old right now. So being aware, and being able to go on a toilet was a big bonus for her, and she definitely enjoyed being able to have the freedom of using the toileting system, from Rifton, over a diaper.
[00:06:25.25] Narrator: What makes this system so versatile for everyone to use is its modular design. Almost effortlessly you can custom adjust it, to suit a wide variety of users. It's that easy!
