An innovation in toileting, the Support Station enables toilet transfers for people with physical disabilities. In consultation with therapists, Rifton designed it to allow users to assist in their own personal hygiene, providing them greater dignity and independence. At the same time, the Rifton Support Station provides benefits to staff by reducing staff injury due to heavy lifting and difficult transfers.
The Rifton Support station brings new dignity, convenience and possibilities to hygiene care for people with disabilities. The Support station’s unique features enable even partially weight-bearing individuals to receive hygiene care or a diaper change in an upright position – making the process more dignified, improving access to clothing and skin, and eliminating heavy lifting on the part of the carer.
With the Support Station, users assist in the sit-to-stand transfer, using their own strength and skills to participate in their care. Over time, users using the Support Station actually improve their standing and toileting skills – paving the way for greater independence and better health.
Install the Rifton Support Station to use with a rolling commode or as a transfer aid to a stationary toilet.
The Support Station’s frame and upholstery include antimicrobial materials and are designed for thorough, easy cleaning, plus it folds flat for storage. In fact in facilities around the country, the Support Station is making a dramatic difference for users with disabilities and their carers.

The Rifton TRAM is a transfer and mobility device designed for the safety, convenience and dignity of both patient and carer. Offering more utility for less cost, the TRAM seamlessly performs seated transfers and raises a patient for standing and supported ambulation.
More than a patient lift system, the Rifton TRAM combines three powerful functions in one device: gait training, sit-to-stand transfers, and seated transfers.
Finally, a hygiene system that solves the toileting challenge!
Time and again, research has shown the necessity of good toileting for children’s health. So Rifton have designed the Rifton HTS with that in mind. Hygienic, simple, affordable, and adaptable to most toilets, the Rifton HTS promotes the forward positioning that is ideal and natural for effective toileting. Meanwhile, its versatility and simplicity – usable on, over and off the toilet, no tools required – is designed to improve the health of every child and the life of every carer.
