For caregivers, they, too, endure a sense of helplessness: often there’s nothing they can do to improve the situation for their aging loved one.
Caregivers frequently lack the physical strength to adjust or move a seated person to a place of greater comfort or enjoyment. Without some mechanical means, even the most cherished of bonding times—a family meal, an afternoon coffee or working together on a Christmas puzzle—cannot be enjoyed together, as there’s no easy way to get everyone up to the table.
Luckily, because we at ComforTek always try to be in the forefront of manufacturing innovative assisted living furniture, we’ve created innovative products, ranging from chairs to tables, that help your loved one keep their independence, dignity, and self respect.
1. Royal EZ
The Royal EZ is a lever that attaches to most dining chairs. A family member simply steps onto the lever, activating the front casters. With the lever depressed, the caregiver can them easily move a seated person to and from the table. No more shoving, pushing, or risking back injury. It’s so easy, even a child could do it.
2. Titan Swivel
The Titan Swivel armed chair further enhances a person’s ability to sit at the table, as the seat of this chair rotates separately from the base of the chair.
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.
The Titan Swivel is perfect for people using a walker or rollator, extending their independence by allowing them to seat themselves.
3. Titan Table
Our wheelchair accessible Titan table series is unlike any conventional institutional table. We designed them for multiple applications needing different tables heights, specifically for individuals in wheelchairs.
Many assisted living centres have special tables designated for wheelchair users. While it may appear to be a solution, it separates the user from friends and family who aren’t at the wheelchair
With the Titan Tables, all tops are fully adjustable to a maximum height of an additional 10″, which is perfect for accommodating varying wheelchair heights. Plus, one top can adjust outward as much as another 6″, so it even works for big wheelchairs.
They’re great for standard chairs, too, so wheelchair users can sit with their loved ones.
Plus, they’re easy to adjust. Because we use large screw knobs for each section, loosening and tightening isn’t a complicating and frustrating ordeal.
Easy for users, and easy for caregivers.
