Universal Design Products, Inc. is the North American distributor of accessible kitchen and bathroom lifts designed and manufactured by Granberg of Sweden.

Some of the biggest obstacles to designing an accessible kitchen are access to sinks, cabinets, countertops (worktops) and appliances which are usually not usable for people who are seated, sitting or in a wheelchair. By installing automatic accessibility lifts, the height of sinks, cabinets, worktops and appliances can be adjusted to accommodate the needs of all users. Most importantly you can design beautiful efficient kitchens and bathrooms that maximize the independence, convenience and changing abilities of all household members.

Wellborn’s Active Living line offers universal or accessible design products that are functional and beautiful. The Active Living line offers a comprehensive collection of finishes and door styles to choose from. This diverse line allows you to design a kitchen that matches your personal taste while meeting your needs for years to come.

Kitchens are the highest function room in the house; they are full of potential sources of strains, repetitive motion, and awkward positions. In addition, all residents of the home use this space; therefore, it needs to be accessible by the least able and the most able person as well as the tallest and smallest. Wellborn's Active Living Cabinetry can help create rooms that allow people of all ages to be active and self-sufficient.

Ergonomics takes into account the user's capabilities and finds methods that make tasks easier utilizing equipment, information and the surrounding environment.

The following are recommendations that can benefit the young and old alike:
  • Reduce work with static muscle effort (sustained positions).
  • Increase use of mechanical lifts.
  • Keep work in "neutral zone".
  • Eliminate or reduce twisting.
  • Place heaviest pots and pans on mid-level shelves and light items on lower levels.
  • Use a sit-stand chair at the counter for frequent chopping and cutting.
  • Increased task and general lighting.
  • Position tools and controls easily within reach.
  • Replace door knobs with levers or open handles.

Incorporating ergonomics into a kitchen design is important for all residents of the home.

The Active Living Collection is available at a variety of price points and construction levels.
