Each year, thousands of unsuspecting Americans fall at home leaving many of them seriously injured and even disabled. In 2010, more than 12,800 people over age 65 died and 1.6 million were treated in emergency departments because of falls.

Falls can occur unexpectedly, even to the most sure-of-foot person. Most falls take place at home, making proactive fall prevention around the house so important. Here are some safety tips to help prevent slips, trips, and falls:

    Easy Comforts fall prevention and home safety tips
  • Reduce your risk of trips and slips by keeping your feet firmly in touch with the ground.
  • Use products that hold rugs in place and add traction to slippery surfaces.
  • Never walk around the house barefoot or in socks/slippers with smooth bottoms.
  • Ensure uniform lighting in rooms by adding lights to dark areas.
  • Use motion-sensing lights so you can see where you're walking.
  • Place lighting close to the bed, where it’s easy to reach.
  • Preventative measures, such as handles and mats, lessen the chance of being caught off guard.
  • Keep items used frequently on lower shelves (about shoulder level).
  • Use a stool with a bar attached for additional stability when reaching items on high shelves.
  • Place non-slip mats or strips on the floor of the tub or shower.
  • Add bars inside and outside your bathing area and next to the toilet.

    Health tips for preventing falls
  • Exercise regularly. Focus on increasing leg strength and improving balance.
  • Identify your medications that may cause side effects such as dizziness or drowsiness.
  • Keep an eye on your vision health and visit an eye doctor at least once a year.

In addition to fall prevention at home, being aware of weather and terrain conditions when you venture outdoors is also important. Easy Comforts offers easy-to-handle products that can reduce hazards and aid in personal stability while away from home.

Great product for what we needed
My wife had to go to Houston for a very serious operation. We live in Oklahoma close to Ft. Smith, AR, so its a long ways away. She needed a stool with a wide enough step for both feet to assist her getting into bed. She is still in the hospital, 3 weeks later, but she should be home any day now. I set up the stool for her and it looks like it is going to be the perfect thing for her! The stool is very heavy duty and locks into place so we don't have to worry about falls. The long handle fits just perfect for her. This is a great product. Thank you.

Folding Step Stool with Handle
I could use this to get inside of 1992 Ford Explorer SUV truck.

This product is well worth the money
I bought the folding step stool with handle because my wife had a stroke and could not get in and out of our SUV because she could not step up high enough to get in. The step stool was the perfect Height to get high enough to allow her to be able to sit down on the seat and get into the vehicle. The step was large enough for her to turn around to sit down and the handle supplied a stable point for her to hold on to as she turned around to sit down. The fold down featured made it easy to carry with us. Very sturdy.

I am handicapped and short (5'2"). I use a van for transport and the step up from the ground just high enough to make it quite difficult. This stool is sturdy (I weigh 300+ pounds) and has plenty of foot room to turn around while standing on it. Folds and transports easily

Large but sturdy and safe
This stool is the perfect solution for someone who needs one step to reach the top shelf in the kitchen or closet, but also needs the comfort of holding onto a handle. It's a bit heavy and large, and it has additional folding sections on both sides, which are not in the picture. I couldn't get them to lock in place, but it doesn't seem to affect the use of the stool. Overall I'm very pleased and would recommend this to others.

Perfect for getting mom into the pickup!
This step stool has been such a blessing! We were trying to figure out a way to assist our elderly mother in getting into my Toyota Tacoma pickup. Most step stools have a small surface area, and no handle. This stool has a very large surface so she has room to move her feet around when positioning herself to get into the truck seat. She also uses the handle to steady herself. The height of the step is just right. She was overjoyed the first time she used it! In fact, she was able to get in all on her own. It easily folds up and fits behind the seat. This is also a very sturdy stool and the hinges lock into place firmly. AND - Easy Comforts is one of the very few companies I found that will ship a stool like this to Alaska. VERY happy with this purchase!

Folding Step Stool
High quality step stool. Being an older individual with impaired eyesight, the handle gives a sense of security when I step up. It's very sturdy. It doesn't wiggle around when you step on it.

I have purchased 3 step stools for my wife in the past 2 years looking for strength and stability in the product. This was my 4th and last purchase. Finally something I can trust to keep my better half safe when I'm not around. Thank you

This would be for my elderly mother. If she were falling backwards and used the handle for support, would it collapse on her? Or is there a safety latch used to fold it up?

Will the step slide away on gravel or concrete when taking the step from the base to the truck?
