We are #1 in the market for the Safest and Most Convenient bed rail line in the industry. Here’s a guide to a few of our bed rails and why they are so great!
EZ Adjust Bed Rail – Most people don’t like the idea of having a bulky bed rail on their bed, and the EZ Adjust solves that problem. It’s not bulky, because it’s the only bed rail on the market that can Extend for fall protection, and when you’re not using it, you can fold it down and out of the way for easy bed-making or transferring. And it includes an organizer pouch to keep handy items close by.
Bed Cane – For those who don’t need “fall protection” and only need assistance while standing, the bed cane is our best seller because it’s discreet, and it comes with an organizer pouch to keep handy items close by.
Bedside Econorail – The worlds most portable bed handle for easy and safe traveling. It only weighs 1.5 lbs and comes with a convenient travel case for easy traveling. This bed handle snaps together in seconds (no tools required) so you can sleep safe wherever you go.
Standing up from a sitting position can be a challenging task – especially as you age or if you have been injured. Often, the softer and lower the surface you’re sitting on, the more difficult it is to stand up. Lift chairs can be helpful, but are often expensive. So, we’ve worked to create affordable products that can help you stand with confidence.
The EZ Stand-N-Go is perfect for those who are recovering from surgery, have back pain, general unsteadiness, or have a lower-set couch that is hard to stand from. Armrests are often set too low, and don’t provide enough leverage to help you stand. The EZ Stand & Go can be installed in minutes, and places two handles right where you need it for maximum support while standing. It’s fully adjustable to fit any couch, chair, or recliner; and like all Stander products, it blends in with your Living Room, like another piece of furniture, to maintain the comforting feeling of your home.
It’s fully-adjustable to meet the needs of your specific chair or couch and your own height as well. You can save money and time by investing in one of these great products – and you will be able to stand up independently instead of relying on others for help.
The Bed Caddie has a unique ladder-like design with 3 handgrips to make it easier to sit-up in bed. It’s great for people who want a little extra support while sitting up – and can be used with our bed rails to help you easily get out of bed.
“I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 2002 and have been using the Stander Bed Caddie for six years. I bought one for my aunt as well. We both love it! It helps immensely when I want to turn over, raise up and/or get out of bed. This past year I began to have frequent problems getting in and out of my car, so I’m looking forward to using the CarCaddie.”
Super easy to assemble and easily folded for travel, our Bed Caddie can offer help to anyone who needs assistance in moving into a sitting position in bed.
We spend a lot of time talking about preventing falls for seniors and helping to increase their mobility, but it’s important to prevent falls for every age. Halloween is a time when kids are frequenting your porch and yard. Sometimes they’re in costumes that make it harder to see or walk. Here are some tips for keeping your yard and porch safe for trick or treaters of all ages this year.
Create a clear path to “the goods”. If your porch is difficult to get to, consider handing out your Halloween treats on your driveway or somewhere more accessible.
Keep pets inside.If anyone is unfamiliar with your animals or unaware that they might be crawling around, pets can be easy to trip over – especially in the dark.
Use glow sticks or other lights to increase visibility in your yard. Glow sticks are a fun idea because they can help set a “spooky” atmosphere but still light the way so people can see and avoid obstacles.
Roll up hoses and put away yard tools. Pretty simple, just keep foreign objects out of the areas where people may be walking. Don’t forget to clean up your lawn for those little tricksters who may cut across your lawn.
Turn off the sprinklers for the day or water early on. Slippery, wet grass is a big danger zone for falls – especially for those who already have limited mobility. Consider skipping the sprinklers on Halloween so that your grass can have better traction.
Living with limited mobility can be tough on the spirit. Different ailments that arise as you age can make it more difficult to get out of bed or stand up from the chair. No matter how great and helpful your family and caregivers are, there’s something to be said about the independence of being able to get to the bathroom on your own. Today, we’re featuring some of our best-loved products that can help make life at home easier for someone with limited mobility.
Security Pole & Curve Grab Bar
The Security Pole & Curve Grab Bar makes it easy to stand from a couch, bed, or toilet. It is tension mounted so it can be placed anywhere in the home – no screws or bolts required. The Curve Grab Bar has 4-Handgrips that make it easy to climb to a standing position – and because the grab bar rotates 360 degrees – you can move the grab bar out of the way when not in use. And like all our products, it blends in with your home to offer extra support without intruding on the comforting feeling of your home.
The Assist-A-Tray is a couch-side handle that makes it easy to stand from your favorite couch or chair. It comes with a convenient multi-use swivel tray so you can eat, surf the web, or simply keep handy items close by. And like all of our products, it blends in with your living-room (like another piece of furniture) so you can maintain the comforting feeling of your home.
EZ Adjust Bed Rail
The EZ Adjust Bed Rail is one of our most popular bed rails! It is the only bed rail on the market that extends in length after installation for Full-Fall Protection. It can be used as a half-bed rail to get in-and out of bed – and extends to a full-size bed rail at night for full fall protection. It easily adjusts from 26” – 42” inches with the push of a button – and folds down and out of the way when not in use. It also comes with a convenient organizer pouch to keep handy items close by – and like all of our bed rails, it blends in with your bedroom (like another piece of furniture) so you can maintain the comforting feeling of your home.
Whether you’re carving a pumpkin or headed on a drive to look at the beautiful leaves changing colors, fall can be a really fun time for grandparents and grandkids to be together.
When traveling in the car, it’s important to keep everyone safe. Everyone knows general car safety rules – wear your seatbelt, don’t text while driving, etc. But climbing in and out of the car can be one of the most dangerous times for senior adults with limited mobility. Here at Stander, we’ve worked to develop products that help senior adults improve their mobility and increase their independence. We have some great options for car mobility products.
One automobile mobility product we’re particularly proud of is the Metro Car Handle Plus. The Metro Car Handle Plus makes it easy to get in-and-out of the car. Simply slide the handle into the striker/door-latch for extra support while sitting or standing. It fits any door striker – so you can have support anywhere in the car for stress-free traveling. And it includes a flashlight for greater visibility at night. When you’re done, simply place the handle in your car and you’re ready to go.
So take grandma for a fun fall drive to see the changing leaves or head to the grocery store to pick out your pumpkins together. Stay safe and have fun!
Studies have shown that confidence can greatly improve mobility. It makes sense, right? Feeling like you aren’t going to fall helps you walk and move in a way that will prevent falling. At Stander, we love to support senior adults in living independently. One of the best things we can offer is our mobility product line.
Whether you’re traveling in the car or getting in and out of the shower, we’ve got products to help you increase your confidence and lower the possibility of slipping or falling. Here are some of our best-loved mobility products:
It’s no secret that your body changes as you age. Your skin, the largest organ on your body, is one of the places where changes are most visible. As you age, the outer layer of your skin thins and the pigment-containing cells decrease. Aging skin can look thin, pale, and even translucent. Skin also becomes more fragile.
Staying out of the sun or protecting your skin while you’re in the sun are important ways to slow any deterioration or problems that may develop with your skin. Many older people suffer from dry or itchy skin. This can be caused by sun exposure, stress, or dehydration and is easily remedied with ointments, creams, lotions, or a humidifier in your home.
Here are some simple tips for senior skin care to help improve, remedy, or slow any conditions that develop as you age:
Avoid hot baths and showing too frequently
Use gentle soaps, moisturizers, and skin care products – stay away from harsh ingredients or highly-scented products
Drink more water to stay properly hydrated
Use sunblock – even in the non-summer seasons
Taking care of your skin is important at any age – and so is making sure you’re safe in your home. Make sure your bathroom is a safe place to care for your skin by using our bathroom safety products for increased mobility.
The EZ Fold & Go Walker from Stander is the worlds most lightweight and portable walker for stress free traveling! It weighs less than 8 lbs, but supports up to 400 lbs; and with the lift of a finger, it folds 4x smaller than your average walker to quickly store in your car, shopping cart, the overhead compartment of an airplane, or discreetly by your side when not in use. Unlike traditional walkers, the Fold & Go can fit through narrow doorways and tight spaces; making it ideal for indoor use at home, while shopping, or eating at restaurants. It can adjust to fit anyone from 4’10” to 6’8”; and for extra convenience, it comes with an organizer pouch, and premium swivel wheels to maneuver in tight spaces.
Here’s what our customers have said about the Fold & Go:
“This product was purchased for walking and balance. Broke my both shoulders and wrist 1 1/2 years ago from a fall and I feel more secure with some support. It is lightweight easy for me to lift in and out of my vehicle & I enjoy it very much.” – Gertraud
“I have the metro walker and LOVE IT! The feature that is most appealing is that you can adjust the width to go through doorways. I also like the fold up feature. I would definitely recommend this product!” – Clyde
“At 94 years of age, my balance was becoming an issue especially in the house because of step-down into the den. Now, with my Mtero Walker, I can take that step with ease. It’s light enough for me to handle and gives me the stability that I was lacking when using a cane. This is one product that I am glad to recommend. Thank you.” – Eloise
“This is the second walker my wife has used and there is no comparable product for style and portability. It is a real pleasure to own.” – Tom
