Multiple Good Uses of the Senior Step Testimony
Posted by David DuPont   •   Friday, 2014-March-07
I saw a rectangular step stool in surgery last month that was only about 6 " high and that was perfect because I cannot do steps. Even that step with the tall handrail is a struggle so I put safety step stool in and saw yours. Tried to call to talk but no one available at the time and I don't believe I left a message. Knee problems are causing me continuous problems. If I ride with anyone in a truck...they have to pull alongside the curb. The same when I get out. Of course if I manage to get in a vehicle, half the time my clothes are "strangling" me because I have to scoot over and I have a hard time doing this.. My new mattress height is taller and I have a hard time getting in bed. I do not want to fall trying to get in bed so I went back yesterday and although I could not remember the name I put in step stool and no luck so changed to safety step stool and there you were.

I am so glad it is on the way and you can be sure all my friends will see it right beside my bed and in my hand on the way to the car. There is no embarrassment in taking care of yourself but real shame if pride gets in the way of safety.

Note from the editor:

Cheryl has touched upon 2 very good uses for the Senior Step, model SST.

The first use is to make getting in and out of your bed much easier.
The second is to help get in and out of a truck or SUV
The third that Cheryl didn't mention is for after knee or hip surgery, to help with rehab.

Safe Step Stool for Health Community
Posted by David DuPont   •   Friday, 2014-March-07
David,

I'm impressed with your product's performance and I am finding more and more uses for this step in the UC Davis Health System. In the health system, we have a variety of applications. Our shuttle vans could use it for passenger loading, our warehouse workers could use it for stacking barrels of waste, our shorter nurses could use it to reach the ICU beds better (they don't adjust as low as other beds), our shorter patients could use it to come to stand easier, our IT/office workers could use it to reach cases of paper off the pallet, our Lift Team could use it to help patients out of their cars easier, our clinic patients could step onto the exam tables easier.....and the list goes on.

In the age if high tech, it's nice to know that it can be applied to the basic of needs: adding a little height. It keeps our workers from reaching overhead and promotes working in a zone where we are most powerful (between shoulder and hip height). I'm a physical therapist, and have been using stepstools for years, but this is the first I've found that is wide enough to let you stand with your feet apart. Wide stance is key to stability when working, and it adds more mobility (you can reach farther). I love that I can stand and squat on this step without feeling like I'm going to slip off! I am specifically interested in the yellow senior (6-inch) Shurestep (13.5 x 24"), the yellow 6-inch stepstool (12" x 12"), and the yellow Nobby Top Shurestep II (13.5' x 24").

Thank you very much,

Kelly,

It's funny that you should be telling me this, I was just at an aviation show in Oshkosh, WI and a surgeon took 4 of the steps to his hospital to use in their OR's for their hospital group in Florida.

The yellow SS2Y-Nobby also comes in another model for everyday passenger use. The SS2Y-Pass has a sandpaper top and has been re-enforced to withstand everyday outside use.

Thanks for your continued use of our products,

David C DuPont

The Sacramento Unified School Dist. just ordered the Senior Steps for their elementary school kids.

My Wife Has a Torn Meniscus on Each Knee
Posted by David DuPont   •   Friday, 2014-March-07
Dear Mr. DuPont,

I heard about Shure-Step from another company offering your product in the Dallas area. I searched and found your company under key word Shure-Step . The picture of the the tourists getting on the bus was very helpful. My wife has a torn meniscus on each knee. Both were repaired a yr apart, healing and recovery have been slow because of diabetes. Her knees still hurt and she is recovering slowly. She needs an extra step to get into the car. Six inches is perfect as provided by your product. 24 inches and the width of 13 inches provide exactly what she needs to get in and out of the car.

Note from the editor:

Thank you Gilbert, You may not know it, but your wife is exactly who we designed the Senior Step for. "A physically challenged person who just needs a little lift to get them into and out of cars, trucks and SUV's". And this step stool also has a very large surface to make it easy to turn around and set your butt on the seat, then grab one of the handles and swing your feet into the car.

I Have a High Step to Get Into my House...Testimony
Posted by David DuPont   •   Thursday, 2014-March-06
I googled "safety step for seniors", and your site came up with some others. Your's was the most expensive, but also the best!!!! Both my knees are bone on bone, and walking is painful. I have tried different shots, no help. Surgery is out, climbing steps is agony, and I have a high step to get into my house!!! I want this step to shorten the step I have to take just to get in my house! I'm hoping this will be the answer!!

Jane


Notes from the editor:

I hope it will be the answer too! Jane, like a lot of elderly, she needs a little boost stepping up to a high step or stairs. She has limited mobility and movement with her legs so she needs a step stool to make the entry into her home a little easier. The 6 inch high Senior Step by Shure-Step is very popular because it has a large top surface that is easy to navigate and see. Quite often the Senior Step is used in physical therapy after knee or hip replacement to help the patients become more mobile.
