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.
