DST for Elderly

Adjust to your patient's needs

As one gets older the quality of life is based on the ability to do mundane activities independently, such as going to the theater, taking a stroll in the park, or visiting family and friends. A crucial part of all those activities is the ability to negotiate stairs successfully. Because stairs are practically everywhere, a failure to do so can affect almost every aspect of the elderly everyday life. In extreme cases, an elderly person might not be able to cross the road safely because of the difficulty of mounting a pavement.

The vicious circle of trauma for elderly

While younger people can shake off an illness and regain full mobility within days, for the elderly every injury require some degree of rehabilitation and physiotherapy. Occasionally elderly people suffer a trauma of some kind as the result of a fall, or a weakness due to illness, etc. They lose their confidence and find themselves in a vicious circle, where insecurity leads to avoiding stairs. By avoiding stairs they reduce their fitness, mobility, and ultimately their quality of life. The DST helps people emerge from that vicious circle. It is a user-friendly device, which can be set to the desired height according to the patient's comfort and eventually attain the physical fitness and confidence required for standard stairs.

"As the world's population is getting older, the need to exercise stair-climbing skills increases. The Dynamic Stair Trainer must be accessible for daily practice to all senior people wherever they are".
