We all need sleep, but as we age, how much sleep we need changes.

Young children may need to spend half of the day sleeping, but as we become adults, that drops to a third. And that doesn’t change as we enter old age. Yet, despite needing as much sleep as younger adults, older adults remain more tired. Read More 7 tips to help older adults sleep better

The Titan Swivel combines elegance, durability, safety, and mobility to bring you a solution that finally makes it possible both for caregivers to easily transport a person and for that person to experience increased independence and self-esteem.

The Titan Swivel is perfect for people using a walker or rollator, extending their independence by allowing them to seat themselves.

With the seat rotated 90° from the table, a person using a walker can come along side the chair, hold onto the arms of the chair to gain stability, and gently lower themselves onto the chair. Once seated, the seat can be rotated back into alignment with the table, at which time a caregiver can move them forward to the table using the Royal EZ component of the chair.

Aging in place

Did you know that Americans spend most of their time indoors? And not just a small majority of their time either; they spend 90% of their time inside.

And that’s the average. The statistic is likely much higher for older adults, who typically are more housebound and who find it more challenging to get out.

Spending nearly all our time can’t be healthy, breathing in recycled air, with all its dust and mould; looking at the same, decades-old environment; navigating around the static, unchallenging setup of our living space. We need physical and visual stimulation to be healthy. We need to breathe. Read More Why older adults should get fresh air every day

Caregivers appreciate the ease with which the Titan Swivel enables them to seat a walker user and move them to and from the table.

If a walker user doesn’t have enough strength to move themselves to a table using a conventional chair, the Titan Swivel is the answer. The Titan Swivel seat rotates 90º, allowing the user to turn it to face them, sit down, then return it to its original position facing the table.

Our wheelchair accessible Butterfly Wheelchair Accessible Table series is unlike any conventional institutional table.

The tables are perfect any time you need different tables heights, specifically for individuals in wheelchairs. Whether your guest uses an electric wheelchair, a manual wheel chair, a rollator, a walker, another assistive device, a conventional chair, or one of our Titan chairs, the Butterfly Table can accommodate them.

Watch it in action:

Even though the Butterfly Wheelchair Accessible Table is versatile enough for any applications needing different tables heights, we designed it specifically for individuals in wheelchairs. Our design allows more users to enjoy a meal without any inconvenience to others.

However, it’s not just a wheelchair table. Because the table can adapt specific to each guest, you can seat people with varying needs at the same table. Friends and family can sit at the same table, regardless of their assistive needs.
