Provides support under the user’s feet
FootStool is used to raise the position of the user’s knees to enable an easier and safer transfer in a seated position. FootStool also provides excellent support under the user’s feet during visits to the toilet or when repositioning further back in a chair or wheelchair.
FootStool is available in two variants with different height; 10 cm/4″ or 5 cm/2″.
- An indentation in the front edge of FootStool enables the carer to stand as close as possible, which gives a better posture
- In the rear edge there is a more shallow indentation for a toilet chair or other obstacles
- FootStool is made of cellular plastic, a sturdy material which doesn’t slide on the underlying surface
- The surface is easy to clean with a soap or alcohol solution
Combination of devices provides individually adapted solutions
To create optimal solutions for users with different needs, FootStool can be used in combination with other manual transfer aids. For a sitting transfer from a wheelchair, for example, FootStool is often used in combination with EasyGlide sliding board.
