Pressalit Care’s Hinged Arm Support Wins
European Design Award
P
ressalit
Care’s
popular
Hinged Arm Support has
received a leading European
design award, a Red Dot Award
2018, for its product design.
Part of the acclaimed Pressalit Care
Plus range, the Hinged Arm Support
offers a number of practical benefits
for
users,
including
being
ergonomically designed to aid
performance; robust for a sense of
security;
and
flexible
for
manoeuvrability in the bathroom.
Its range of colours caught the eye of
the judges as well as its sleek,
attractive – and relevant - design.
Available in bright, contemporary
colours to coordinate with other
elements in the bathroom - white,
anthracite, orange, red, dark blue and
lime green – these not only enhance
bathroom décor, but importantly aid
recognition for those users with poor
eyesight.

The Arm Support’s design sets it apart
from other products in the market.
Designed with an upturn at the end, this
not only aids support and grip, but allows
the user to recognise where the end of
the arm is, by touch.
As with all Pressalit Care’s products,
flexibility and adaptability is a key part of
its design. Fitted with a barrel hinge, the
Hinged Support Arm can be folded up
against the wall when not in use,
creating more space in the bathroom. It
can be secured in one position, or
additionally, when fitted with the
Pressalit Care Plus track system, can be
moved and adjusted both vertically or
horizontally.
Positioned alongside a WC or
washbasin for additional support in the
bathroom, it can withstand weight of
150kg, providing a sense of security and
aiding confidence when transferring into
or out of a wheelchair.
For situations when the arm is needed
only periodically, it can also be removed
from the track and stored separately,
and simply re-attached when required.
Andrew Lowndes, UK sales manager for
Pressalit Care says, “It’s great news that
Red Dot has recognised the features of
our Hinged Arm Support that make it
such an excellent product for an
accessible bathroom, whether in a
Changes Places installation, in a private
home, or in a care home or school. Built
and designed to an exceptionally high
standard, and incorporating benefits
from colour through to shape, the arm
lends support to the user when they
need it most in the bathroom. It’s hard
to underestimate how important a sense
of security is for those with limited
mobility – the Hinged Arm Support can
provide that security.”
