Unfortunately, assisted living residents at some point lose their ability to move themselves to the table. While they may be able to guide themselves to the table with the use of a walker, the act of moving themselves in a chair up to the table is beyond their physical reach.
The Royal EZ enables a caregiver to gently move a seated person to and from the dining table easily and safely.
The Royal EZ system includes casters mounted onto a suspended leverage bar, which is fastened to the chair’s front legs. The casters are fastened to the chair’s rear legs.
Once the foot pedal is depressed, the suspended casters contact the floor, lifting the front legs of the chair ever so slightly. The chair can now be moved forwards or backwards with minimal effort. When the foot pedal is released, the casters lose contact with the floor, and the chair is once again firmly positioned.

Bonus advantage: improved caregiver safety!
Using the Royal EZ can significantly reduce back injury claims related to current workplace practices. Caregivers no longer need to lift, push, or walk a seated resident to or from a table. Caregivers simply step onto the rear pedal, then gently guide the chair forward. Once activated, the chair moves forward with ease! A 130 lb. caregiver will quite easily be able to guide a 250 lb.
It’s so easy, even a child can do it!
