Why we chose to design for the caregivers

In recognition of the daily efforts required by caregivers to care for persons with limited mobility, our design team placed a high value on the function of the Titan chair as opposed to its form.

While the appearance of a chair certainly adds a creative flair to a dining hall or cafeteria, a question seldom addressed is: can a chair’s design enhance a caregiver’s ability to provide care to persons with limited mobility?

Focused on CAREgivers:

The physical demands on a caregiver increase daily. Whether it’s assisting a person transferring into a bed, lifting them into a tub/shower, or moving them to a table for a meal or family activity, caregivers are constantly challenged to perform these efforts without injuring themselves.

Front line caregivers face the daunting challenge of providing high levels of care to persons whose weight may be more than twice their own weight. Unless technology is incorporated into the facility, the caregiver can provide care to only the level of their own physical strength and wellbeing. Once they breach that threshold, caregivers miss work, leaving loved ones in the care of minimal or unfamiliar staff.

Why Titan is the solution

Our Titan products reduce caregiver injury, improve caregiver effectiveness, and increase user mobility in 3 specific ways:

  1. Caregivers can move a seated person to and from the table with ease
  2. A person requiring daily use of a walker/rollator can sit at a table
  3. Spouses can enjoy a meal together even if one of them is confined to a wheelchair
