Sit to Stand Lifts

Sit to Stand Aids- Stand Assist Devices commonly referred to as "Sit to Stand or Sit to Stand's" are used to raise persons who have some weight-bearing capacity to a standing position for transfers, cleaning, and dressing. The standing motion of these lifts can offer several benefits. For example, the partial weight bearing and standing motion that occurs during lifting encourages active participation by the resident, increasing muscle tone and circulation. In addition, the standing position combined with the upper body harnesses and vests offered with these lifts can make cleaning and lower extremity dressing safer for the caregiver and more efficient.

Although these devices are typically used to lift and transfer residents who can bear weight, some models offer optional sling bars and sitting position slings that provide transfer assistance for residents who are totally dependent. In addition, some sit-to-stand lifts can be used as gait training devices by removing the adjustable footplate and connecting an optional walking harness. Adjustable height knee pads also add to the versatility of these lifts.

Sit-to-Stand lifts typically feature a ā€œUā€ type adjustable base that can be spread wider, providing stability and maneuverability around chairs and other obstacles. Some lifts offer a motorized base spread, while others offer a manual base spread via a hand lever or foot pedal. Most bases spread into a ā€œVā€ shape; however, some lifts offer a parallel spread. Parallel spreading bases have one fixed leg and a powered leg that moves parallel to the fixed leg as the base widens.
