There is no place like home. But for some senior citizens, home is no longer a place that is safe or accessible due to their age, mobility issues or sickness.
One company is seeking to change this. “Stander” is a company specializing in mobility solutions for the home and daily life. Whether it be a caddie for the car or a bed rail, “Stander” has many products that will help to make the home of a senior citizen safer and more trusting for everyone involved.
The following is a list of products, broken down by category, that can provide help in a variety of situations and places for people of older age, people with mobility issues and even young children.
Security Pole and Curve Grab Bar: This floor to ceiling structure features a curved bar that allows for an easy grip and locks in place at every 45 degree angle. This pole is adjustable, portable and requires wall mounts for easy installation, perfect for getting in and out of the tub, etc.
The Curve Grab Bar: This bar is a shorter version of the Security Pole and Curve Grab Bar and protects against falls and makes standing or sitting easier. It must be secured to the wall, but is also space saving.
Safety Bed Rails
Bedside Econorail: This small, yet incredibly useful, bed rail allows for easy transfer in and out of bed, is light in weight and strong, collapsible and portable. The rail also features a four-pocket organizer and snaps together quickly for easy assembly.

The rail features a safety bumper pad with four convenient pockets per side and pivots down to side of bed to allow user to get out of bed and provide space for making the bed.
