Changing tables for adults is an indispensable help for weak or disabled adults and their caregivers. For adults with limited mobility or incontinence, they offer a safe, hygienic and comfortable space to move around with assistance. For nursing staff, they offer a safe and comfortable platform that reduces the risk of back strain and other injuries.
An adult changing table, also known as a breastfeeding table or stool, is a universal aid with which the patient can be supported with changing clothes, incontinence or changing bandages as well as with many other tasks.

Because of this, they are a popular choice for a variety of locations including hospitals, life support homes, elderly communities, and private homes. While most adult changing tables are used for adult patients, they are valuable for disabled adults, teens, and children. In addition, it is not only patients themselves who benefit from changing tables for adults – the ease of use, hygienic design and ergonomic properties make changing tables for adults attractive to their caregivers.
Changing tables for adults are available in different designs with different equipment. Which decision is right for you will depend on the needs of your patient and your facility.
Nurses have the option of purchasing a collapsible adult changing table or a manually collapsible adult changing table, both of which have pneumatic cylinders attached to the folding joint for quiet and smooth operation.
Folding changing tables for adults offer the same stable changing stations as non-foldable tables, but can be stored safely and easily when not in use. Because of this, they are popular in apartments and small facilities with limited floor space.
