Interior designer Eleonore Walcher’s motto is to design living spaces in which her clients feel comfortable for a long time. Of course, this also and especially applies when a standard flat does not meet the special requirements of people with physical limitations. One of her clients wanted exactly that: a flat that would allow them to live independently in their own four walls for a long time despite their progressive illness. And that even when the development of future ailments is uncertain. The goal was a completely barrier-free living environment that is not only wheelchair accessible, but also takes into account other possible barrier scenarios. To this end, in addition to the standard push-button switches, operation via remote control for doors, windows, curtains and roller blinds was installed. The connections for voice control are also prepared and a voice assistant could be retrofitted if required.
Of course, the necessary extra safety has also been taken into account. Because wheelchair users in particular have a high risk of falling. SensFloor fits perfectly into the interior designer’s concept. An invisible system that is invisible and does not disturb the homely atmosphere. A system that nevertheless absolutely reliably detects every fall and automatically calls for help.
Barrier-free home adaptations:
- Fall detection with SensFloor — connected to a home emergency call centre.
- Smart Home with electrical control of doors, windows, curtains and roller shutters. Each can be operated via push-button and radio remote control. A voice assistant can be retrofitted.
- Fittings all operable from the wheelchair
- Electric bed with exit aid
- Wardrobes with clothes lifts
- Kitchen can be accessed from underneath
- Upper kitchen unit can be lowered for use
- Small cupboard for transport next to the wheelchair
The result is a chic, barrier-free smart home to feel comfortable in.
