Time and again, research has shown the necessity of good toileting for children’s health. So Rifton designed the HTS with that in mind. Hygienic, simple, affordable, 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 – make the lives of caregivers better too.
Supportive and comfortable
Support and comfort, according to research, are essential to good toileting in children with special needs. For this reason, we have paid close attention to designing components that give children a sense of safety, security and support.
The maximum support and comfort are provided by the tilt-in-space base option. Its gas-assisted cylinder tilts up to 15˚ forward for easier transfer, as well as 15˚ back for showering and hair washing.
All straps and accessories that touch the skin have been made with soft, easily laundered materials.
Reduces clean up
Every opportunity to save clean up and make the caregiver’s task easier was pursued in the design of the Rifton HTS.
For instance, the unique design of the seat pad opening (open to the rear) facilitates clear access for cleaning and hygiene after toileting.
Rifton’s splash guard deflector represents a totally new approach to maximum protection. It slips between the legs down into the pan and is held in place with the seatbelt.
The soft plastic of the splash guard is comfortable for the client while providing an extra measure of security for the caregiver.
