Planning for the New Year – Why Making Your Business More Handicap Accessible Should Be Top of the List!

The New Year is almost here and what an exciting time to make some changes for the betterment of yourself and/or your business! If you’re looking to make your business more accessibility-friendly, we have a few products and tips that can help you out with this New Year’s Resolution!

Resolution No. 1

Evaluate Your Entrances:

Taking a look at your entrances is a great starting point to determine what kind of accessibility solutions will be required. Are there stairs that can prevent someone from getting to your door? Is there enough space for a wheelchair to maneuver its way to the door and through the doorway? Is there a slope that’s too steep for someone to get up? These are all great questions to ask yourself.

Achieving Resolution No. 1:

With a few simple products like the TITAN™ Code Compliant Modular Access System, you can provide a seamless entry point for your customers. This system is low maintenance so it doesn’t have to be another worry while you run your business or welcome customers.

Resolution No. 2

Take a look at your door:

While opening a door may be a simple task for many, it’s important to consider the weight of the door and how easy it would be to open for someone using a wheelchair. One more thing to look at is the doorway threshold. Is it a significant height? Would it be a struggle for a wheelchair, scooter, or walker to navigate the threshold?

Achieving Resolution No. 2:

Adding one of our TRANSITIONS® entry mats can eliminate those tricky thresholds and help prevent the potential trip hazard they may pose. Designed to be slip resistant and easy to match up to your threshold, installing these mats should be no hassle at all. They blend so well, you’ll barely notice they’re there!

We understand that making your business completely accessible can seem like an overwhelming task while running your business, but with these few improvements, you’ll be marking resolutions off your list left and right. Cheers to a New Year and let us help you create a plan for improved accessibility here!

Fall Facts: Tips to Prevent Falls in your Home

Fall Facts: Tips to Prevent Falls in Your Home

Falls are considered the number one cause of injury for seniors. After falling once, it doubles a person’s chance of falling again and often leads to Post Fall Anxiety Syndrome. Learn how a few simple modifications can help mitigate fall risks in the home and provide peace of mind for you or a loved one.

 

Bathroom: Did you know people over 85 suffer more than half their injuries near the toilet? For those who struggle to get up from the seated position or need extra stability in the bathroom, the TILT® Toilet Incline Lift may be a perfect aid to prevent injuries and falls in the bathroom.

 

Bonus Tip: Add non-slip mats to the shower and bathtub to prevent any slips and falls while bathing. If accessing a shower or tub is too difficult for you or your loved one, consider using our EZ-Shower Bedside Shower or EZ-BATHE® Body Washing Basin for an in-bed bathing experience.

 

Entryways and Raised Landings: Does your home have a tricky entryway or a step down into another room? These can be problematic for those who experience difficulty moving safely throughout their home. Adding a TRANSITIONS® threshold ramp, mat, or plate in those areas can dramatically reduce the number of tripping incidents and create a smooth path for wheelchairs, walkers, scooters, etc.

 

Porches and Stairs: Don’t risk falling or tripping down porch or entryway stairs, especially when it’s rainy or icy. Adding a ramp and/or platform to your home can help eliminate environmental hazards, which is the majority reason people fall. The PATHWAY® 3G Modular Access System could be the perfect solution when it comes to creating a cleared walkway with safe handrails to guide individuals to and from home access points.

 

While not every fall leads to injury, there can still be health risks that are present such as the inability to get up or the anxiety of falling again. Since one-third of those who are over 65 will fall each year, it’s important to take the right precautions to help eliminate the potential causes of injury.
