- Greater dignity and independence: Putting an end to infant-like, horizontal hygiene can have dramatic emotional benefits. Even people with very limited weight-bearing ability can now participate in their own personal care.
- Improved safety for caregivers: Eliminating transfers to a mat or changing table means less lifting and wrestling with clothing, plus clothing and skin are more accessible – so the process is healthier for everyone.
- Practice in strength and skill building: Using their own strength and skills to transfer and support themselves, people improve weight-bearing and motor skills over time.
- Less time out: Faster than horizontal diapering, the Support Station lets everyone spend less time on hygiene and more time in class, in therapy or simply enjoying life.
