Comfort. Convenience. Compliance


Space Tables are fully adjustable and wheelchair accessible to accommodate the needs of each individual. Height adjustability enables every resident to dine with dignity. Proper table height protects resident health by reducing shoulder, arm, and neck strain, as well as boosting self-esteem. One person can adjust, tilt, and move Space Tables without lifting, saving staff time and preventing injury.

Reduce Falls and Increase Mobility



The Evolution chair from Optima Products features a unique center-mounted wheel that allows people with a limited range of motion to propel themselves using hands, feet, or both. The seat height adjusts to a low of 14.5" for improved foot propulsion and fall reduction. An adjustable seat depth and tilt-in-space feature reduces sliding and slumping, while contoured cushions distribute weight for better comfort and pressure management during long periods of sitting. A variety of positioning accessories are also available.

Eyeglass Identification



Eyeglass Rescue's Identification Sleeves fit over the temple bar of a resident's eyewear. When attached, your staff can identify the owner of the eyeglasses by a unique code printed on the sleeve. The sleeves are comfortable and essentially invisible when worn. Eyeglass Rescue is a simple, low-cost solution that eliminates resident inconvenience, saves staff time identifying found eyeglasses, and the expense of replacing lost eyewear.

A chart listing all the Identification Numbers on the sleeves in your facility's order is included. When glasses are found, a staff member matches the Identification Number on the chart to that on the eyeglasses to identify the owner.
