Cisco Aironet 1240AG - trying to tune for smoother hand-off to the next AP

Hello - we have 10 Aironet 1240AG WAPs in our plant that provide WIFI services for roaming computer guns, and lately, users have been complaining about their signal getting weak - application slows down considerably - and after a minute, it picks back up again (presumably when the WAP drops them and hands them off to the next.  I walked around with a WIFI analyzer app on my phone, and I noticed there is a long duration (30-60 seconds) where the signal drops below -80dbms and after 30 seconds, it finally releases the client to the closer WAP.   With Adtran Bluesockets, there is a Minimum Transmit Rate that can be configured so as to force the hand-off quicker.  Is there something like this with these older Cisco APs?  We will be replacing these soon, but in the meantime, I'm wondering if I can tune them better.  Any help is appreciated.

Are they used with a wireless controller or standalone?

sorry - they are standalone, unfortunately for me.
