Use a Patient Transfer Device for Standing Assistance

Use a Patient Transfer Device for Standing Assistance

A patient transport is a tall device on wheels that a caretaker uses to move the patient from place to place. It takes the place of a wheelchair as it is usually narrower and fits through doorways. In a transport, the patient stays relatively vertical, with a seat and kneepads to lean against. Some transports require that the user have some strength and stability to get onto the device, while others automate the lift with a hydraulic motor and sling.

How a Lift Chair Helps You Sit Down and Stand Up

How a Lift Chair Helps You Sit Down and Stand Up

When you sit down on a lift chair, you bend your legs less than when sitting on a regular chair. When you stand up from a lift chair, you need less leg strength than you do getting up from a regular chair. So the lift chair offers both standing and sitting assistance. Lift chairs are also recliners. Some have massage and heat. Some are “wall huggers” that don’t require a ton of room in the back to recline. Some recline to a horizontal position, and some only to about 140 degrees.
