The enhanced standing and transfer aid
Sara StedyÂ®Â is a new enhanced standing aid which builds upon the success of the original StedyÂ®, a proven mobility-promoting support aid that encourages more mobile patients and residents/patients to stand up independently.
With a number of new enhancements,Â Sara StedyÂ helps to minimize manual handling by caregivers in an even wider range of healthcare situations. With an increased inner width, a new seat shape and a new safe working load of 400 lbs (182 kg),Â Sara StedyÂ also meets the standing assistance needs of larger residents/patients. Enhanced features include a pivoting divided seat and pedal-operated chassis legs that ensure improved comfort and support, and make working routines easier for caregivers.
A better alternative to a wheelchair
The enhanced standing aid concept has become well established throughout long term care and acute care facilities because it:
- Offers a more suitable and dignified alternative to a wheelchair, for more mobile residents/patients
- Promotes dignity and independence, as optimum participation in activities is possible
- Enables good, reassuring eye contact between resident/patient and caregiver, unlike a wheelchair
- Provides transport to the toilet and sink, and can support other common activities of daily living
