For patients and residents with reduced mobility and other special needs, our aim is to improve mobility while preventing complications, and facilitate a care experience that is as safe, dignified and comfortable as possible. Our ultimate goal is to help them achieve greater independence, faster recovery, and better overall quality of life.
For patients and residents with limited or impaired mobility, time spent out of bed may be a specific rehabilitation goal or the highlight of their day.
Standing and raising aids enable residents/patients to be raised up from a bed, chair, toilet or wheelchair for transferral or transportation. Promoting mobility and early mobilisation, they are ideal for residents/patients that are having difficulty getting up into a standing position.
Here at Arjo, we love to receive customer feedback and below is the story of one patient who benefited from the Sara Flex standing and raising aid:
"I just wanted to pass on some great news to you.
You may recall a male patient we had here at Worcester City Inpatient Unit last year who very successfully trialled the Sara Flex hoist which was a key factor in enabling him to maintain standing practice once he returned home and therefore enabled his rehabilitation to continue after having a stroke.
You could not have been more helpful and supportive in allowing him to use the demonstration hoist for as long as was needed until the new one arrived.
He was always determined to keep recovering and had great family and carer support.
I spoke to this patient and his wife last week and was told that he is now not only walking but is also managing to do the stairs! And he and his wife are going on holiday in a few weeks time!
We were absolutely over the moon to hear the good news and I wanted to let you know as I honestly believe that without the design of the Sara Flex and without your support and enthusiasm it would not have been possible.
So, thank you, thank you!"
