Wayne, NJ (PRWEB) November 20, 2013
For many seniors the fear of falling makes them reluctant to perform some daily living activities. "This," Kathleen Hanek, Director of Product Management for Maddak Inc., manufacturer of Ableware® Aids for Daily Living, states, "is especially true when it comes to showering, and can compromise a person’s ability to live independently." A solution for overcoming this is the new Adjustable Corner Shower Seat which provides a safe, stable seat while showering.
Conveniently sized to fit into corners and small spaces, the Adjustable Corner Shower Seat increases shower safety and helps to boost confidence and independence. When sitting with the legs astride one of the corners, the user has easier access to the feet. This is especially useful for diabetics who need to monitor their feet. In addition to the senior population Hanek tells us, "the Adjustable Corner Shower Seat is ideal for anyone who has a lower extremity injury or a disability that prevents weight bearing on the legs."
The Ableware® Adjustable Corner Shower Seat is height adjustable from 16 – 23" (40.6 – 58.4 cm) and, according to Hanek, "features Maddak’s exclusive quick-change leg design that makes adjusting the height simple. The legs can be easily adjusted in ¼" (.64 cm) increments and they have non-slip rubber tips that hold the bench securely in place." The legs are removable for easy transport and storage. The Adjustable Corner Shower Seat has a weight capacity of 300 lb. (136.4 kg). Suggested retail price is $56.95. For additional product information go to http://www.maddak.com.
