Barbara

Barbara needs special consideration when it comes to her balance
Barbara has less mobility, strength and stamina than Albert and needs to use her hands to support some of her bodyweight when standing and ambulating. Barbara’s ‘pear-shaped morphology’ means that her weight is carried mainly aound her hips. The design of all types of seating, including shower chairs with open sides, needs to take her body shape into account as well as accommodate balance and mobility.

  • Needs a walking device when standing up
  • Dependent on the caregiver in some situations
  •  Her yellow trousers indicates that she represents a slightly increased risk of static or dynamic physical overload to caregivers
  • Stimulation of functional mobility is very important
