Product & Company
Step2health brings products to market in the health and wellness field to help improve peoples lives.
The step2bed is our latest device geared to help Seniors remain independent longer and reduce their risk of falls in the bedroom.
Vince Baiera started his career working as an ICU Nurse at The Cleveland Clinic and Duke University Hospital in the Cardiac ICU. After working as a traveling ICU Nurse, Vince stepped away from nursing to pursue Healthcare Consulting and Teaching.
After 1.5 years of teaching at Central Nursing College in Los Angeles, CA, Vince moved on to start Baiera Wellness Products, a Product Development Company. As a result from dealing with his own grandparents who struggled with mobility and falls, Vince developed the step2bed to help solve this problem.
Vince currently resides in San Diego, CA and enjoys spending free time with friends and going to the beach.
Why choose step2health?
Message from our Founder, Vince Baiera:
My grandparents were getting older and struggling with mobility issues. They both had fall injuries when getting out of bed over the years. Everyone has seen it in their family, as their loved ones age, they slow down. As an ICU nurse, I used to always say that ‘Father Time’ beats us all.
After looking at the problem from afar, I wanted to create a product that could help all seniors reduce their risk of falls. It could help people remain independent longer and help them live a safer lifestyle. I focused on fall prevention and thought getting in and out of bed wasn’t being addressed well.
The step2bed was created and we are excited about all the people we can help, worldwide. We can help the baby boomer generation and their parents ‘Age in Place’ easier and longer with the step2bed. The longer people can stay safe in their home, the better it is for everyone.
Anyone with mobility issues can benefit from the step2bed. With over 1 million knee and hip surgeries a year, there are a lot of people who struggle with recovery and need help to get in-and-out of bed safely.
We focused on simplicity and functionality and spared no expense in the production.
The step2bed is truly a Safe, Easy & Worry-Free experience!
How is the step2bed different?
The step2bed is fundamentally different from a bed rail. Bed Rails are designed to block the entrance of a bed and keep the user from falling out of bed. With perpendicular handrails and an extra wide step, the step2bed creates a pathway of entry to get in-and-out of bed.
Developed by a nurse, the step2bed has received four patents for its unique design and functionality. Compared to a standard step stool, the step2bed has 3x as much surface area with two grab bars to create a safe platform for the senior when in use. This allows individuals to remain at home with the same bed that they have used for years and delays the need for any major home modifications or to relocate to a different bed or environment.
Lastly, by using steel support grab bars and having a 400lb. weight capacity, our product can be used by 99.9% of Americans.
Our goal is to help every senior age-in-place as long as possible. We are positioned to help maintain health, well-being and function with seniors that will help prevent age-related problems like falls. We believe this new strategic product can reduce falls and the pain they cause. The step2bed provides seniors with a tool to improve safety in the home and encourages independence.
Our mission is to help seniors remain independent longer and reduce their risk of falls.
