Products for Betty
Betty gets around using a walker and is partially dependent on a caregiver in certain situations. With the right transfer devices she’s able to stand and sit and move around the house independently, but she isn’t able to reach up or bend down. She still users her walker for shorter distances, but if she wants to go to the park her caregiver sometimes pushes her in a chair.
”For people like Betty we install more advanced fall prevention devices such as Healthcraft’s SuperPole™ with SuperBar™, AssistaRail™, and Advantage Rail™. Their pivot and lock systems help stabilize the transfer to a standing position, and are especially useful for people with walkers, because they rotate out the way of the frame. We’d also recommend installing one or two threshold ramps as these will provide a smooth transition regardless of whether she’s using her walker or getting pushed in the chair.”
SuperPole™ with SuperBar™ is ideal for any part of the house, providing stability and functionality in a clean and modern design. The SuperBar has eight locking positions, one every 45 degrees, for superior centralized support as you move.
