What is a stand aid?

Stand aids are designed to help the elderly and those with limited mobility to stand up and can be used for transfers from chair to bed as well as toileting.

What are the different types of stand aids?

We supply both electric stand aids and non-powered / manual stand aids.

Manual / non-powered stand assists require the patient to be able to pull themselves up into a standing position using the handles. Some of these come with seat flaps that drop down behind the patient so they can sit whilst being transferred.

Electric stand aids are used for patients who are unable to to pull themselves up into a standing position but can weight bear for a short period. These devices are equipped with slings and are powered by a battery. The carer uses the hand control which raises and lowers the patient in a smooth & continuous movement.

We supply stand aids that split apart for easy transportation and storage. We also stock a range of stand aids accessories such as support slings to assist the user into a standing position.

Things to consider when choosing the right stand aid:

Weight capacity: We have plenty of stand aids to suit a wide range of users within different weight categories including;

100 – 159 kg

160 – 199 kg

200 kg & over

You can easily navigate our range of stand aids on our online store.

Use the filter on the left hand side to find your perfect model depending on the stand aid type (electric or manual) battery type, frame type & even by patient size!
