Ideal for any child, any toilet, anywhere

As a shower chair.

By doubling as a mobile shower chair the Rifton HTS eliminates the need to purchase separate equipment for each activity.

On, Over, Off the Toilet. No matter what the toileting situation, the type of toilet or the special need, the Rifton HTS can meet it with its unmatched versatility.

Supportive and comfortable

Support and comfort, according to research, are essential to good toileting in children with special needs. For this reason, Rifton paid close attention to designing components that give children a sense of safety, security and support.

Reduces clean up

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.

Grows with the child (or multiple children)

Adjust the height. One frame accommodates both small and medium seats to allow for children’s growth.

Adjust the seat depth. The seat depth on the Rifton HTS adjusts 3” – 4” to fit the child.

Adjust the width. The chair’s width can be adjusted by adding one or both hip positioners to the armrests.

Adjust the backrest. The backrest can be adjusted 6˚ forward (for proper toileting position), 6˚ back and 18˚ back (to assist with showering and hair washing).

Solves real problems

The portability kit gives clients and their families greater freedom to travel, including the ability to use public toilets safely.

Easier lifts and transfers

Lifts and transfers present a major challenge to successful toileting. The Rifton HTS makes them easier with a variety of features – such the footboard’s flip-up capacity, and the gas-spring forward-tilting seat. Lateral transfers are simpler as well, thanks to the removable armrests.

Important: Make sure that seat width, depth and height are adequate for each individual user, and that the user’s weight does not exceed the maximum weight recommended.
