Height Adjustable Handrails
If a user requires a handrail for facilitation during toilet use, the correct height and position are essential to provide health assistance to the user. There are significant health implications associated with the incorrect handrail height and position. Low handrails provide no support during the end phase of the sit-to-stand movement. This creates a shift in center gravity which increases the risk of a fall due to balance loss.
Current research has found that the height and position of a handrail effects joint movements and the central gravitational shift, suggesting handrail position and height should be selected to match the status and condition of each individual.
Dementia sufferers tend to experience a cognitive decline with vision, making objects difficult to observe and interact with. Research* and experts have highlighted that blue and red are the most easily perceived colour by a Dementia or Alzheimer’s sufferer. The Adjustpan’s red and blue foam armrests mean a Dementia or Alzheimer’s sufferer finds it easier to distinguish the
toilet area from the surrounding area.
