Health Skills Centre – Upgrade to Mobility Equipment

HITsa has new lifters for training purposes within its skills centre.

The Sara Stedy lifter is unique as it can be used by a single caregiver to assist clients in performing sit to stand transfers throughout the day, promoting early mobilisation by encouraging patients to be active during these transfers.

Trainers have been using this equipment within aged care facilities and remarked on how easy they are to use, with the convenience of only requiring one person to safety operate this equipment. Another benefit of the Sara Stedy is that it is a non-powered device.

The Dementia Services Development Centre at the University of Stirling reviewed Sara Stedy and awarded it a DSDC Product Accreditation Rating Class 1B
