It is a common ageist archetype: elderly people are prone to falls. As systemic functions decline, balance, stability, visual acuity, and muscle coordination become impaired, making each activity a considerable risk to their health and life.
According to The Merck Manual for Health Care Professionals, there are about 40 percent of elderly people in the community and 50 percent of nursing home residents who fall, making it the leading cause of accidental death and the seventh leading cause of death among people over 65 years of age.

Fortunately, falls are not an inevitable part of aging. Rather, they are viewed as the interplay of a variety of factors that are amenable to interventions. Since most geriatrics prefer to live alone in the comfort of their own homes, devices must be prudently employed to prevent the occurrence of falls.
The bathroom is considered as the most accident-prone area in the house, as bathroom tiles and fixtures tend to become slippery when wet. Therefore, special attention must be given to geriatric patients to ensure their safety in that area.
Since the inception of Duramedix Healthcare in 2006, Chief Operating Officer Jason Nikouyeh has been leading the company into the frontlines of the competitive healthcare market.
One of the more popular bathroom assistive devices is the bathroom chair. This is especially recommended for people with arthritis, frailty, or imbalance to avoid the risk of falling while taking a bath.
Duramedix Healthcare is currently offering its drive aluminum bath seat to those who are at risk of bathroom falls. It’s made of an aluminum frame that is lightweight, durable, and corrosion-proof. To ensure maximum safety, the bath seat is designed to support up to 400 lbs. of weight.
