Not a lift, the Sit-to-Stand Trainer actively assists the standing motion with support at the knees, trunk and arms.

Using a counter-weight mechanism, it provides graduated support of the standing and sitting motion even in individuals who have not stood in years to enable safe, effective strengthening of weight-bearing muscles and assists in re-learning.

Equipped with a weight stack and locking pulley system, the Sit-to-Stand Trainer is mounted on wheels and fits through any standard doorway so that it can be easily wheeled from room to room. It can be used directly from a wheelchair or the bedside.

Key Benefits

  • Encourages early weight bearing and active mobilization at the hips and knees
  • Improves standing balance and stability
  • Significantly improves transers
  • Improves client rehabilitation without physical strain to the therapist

People who could only be moved with a mechanical lift can use the Sit-to-Stand Trainer to elevate to the standing position. Once standing, the Sit-to-Stand Trainer enables them to improve strength and mobility around joints that support standing and walking.

“If not for the Sit-to-Stand Trainer, I couldn’t have progressed from my wheelchair to standing. I was too weak to stand, but using the Sit-to-Stand Trainer in the first phase of rehab helped me strengthen my legs and my trunk so that I could continue to improve.”
