This simple stand-aid assists caregivers in helping patients move from sitting to standing with ease, effectively relieving weight stress on the caregiver by allowing patients to be active in their transfer. It also offers patients greater mobility and independence by allowing them to be an active party in their transfers.
The Hoyer Switch Stand-Aid from Joerns Healthcare is specifically designed to be easy-to-use, compact, and travel-friendly with functionality that far exceeds its simplicity. This transfer device's basic but effective design makes it the perfect choice for patients that retain upper body strength who would like to be active in their transfer but, need a little assistance making short-distance transfers.
Whether used for temporary or extended care, this lift provides sit-to-stand transitions that increase patient independence. For use, patients simply position their feet on the lift's clearly marked footplate, lean into the adjustable and padded knee pads for support, then pull themselves to standing with a handlebar located across the top of the frame. Caregivers provide assistance and ensure maximized safety for the patient. Caregivers also experience less weight strain, which can directly lead to minimized fatigue and reduced chance of injury. Wheels, along with easily engaged brakes, allow for seamless transfers over short distances.
The simple design of this sit-to-stand device offers a streamlined profile that can easily navigate smaller spaces, especially when transitioning from bed to chair, to or from a wheelchair, or when toileting. Repositioning a slouching patient into a more upright position is also easily accomplished. Travel and storage are made easy with the device's lightweight design and ability to disconnect the frame from the base.
