Shure-Step Senior Step Helps With:
Works Well as a Bus Step Stool for Senior Passengers
Because bus steps are often 12 to 13 inches off of the ground, it's important for retirement communities, nursing homes, and rehab facilities to have a sturdy stepping solution on hand. This sturdiness not only provides safety, but also gives peace of mind to residents, so they can feel confident about travelling. Another important factor is that the step needs to have bright contrasting colors, so the step is easily seen when stepping up or down. The Shure Step Senior Step measures 6" in height, which makes it ideal as a physical therapy tool, considering the first exercise after recovering from knee or hip replacement surgery is a 6 inch step up and down. Because the Shure Step Senior Step has a 500 lb. weight capacity, senior passengers can fit both feet on top comfortably. However, its lightweight design still makes loading and unloading an easy task. A textured surface ensures no slipping, even in the rain.
Superior Design Protects Against Falls
It's very easy for seniors to misjudge placement of steps. For instance, a step with legs can be confusing and often, the senior may accidentally place their foot under the step. This visual misjudging of the step's placement often results in a fall. The Shure Step Senior Step is designed with a perimeter wall that does not allow for the feet to get caught under the step legs. Since the step weighs 10 lbs. and has large rubber pads on the step bottom, the chances of tripping or getting the feet caught under the step is unlikely.
How to Determine if the Shure Step Senior Step is the Correct Height
Measure the distance from the ground to the first step on the vehicle you are trying to load and unload passengers from. Now, cut that distance in half. This way, your passenger has 2 equal steps up into the vehicle, one step from the ground to the top of the Shure Step, and one step from the top of the Shure Step into the vehicle.
