Arjo | Sara Flex Standing & Raising Aid
An evaluation of 6 different sit-to-stand devices showed an ‘overwhelming preference’ for the Sara® Flex knee support.
Designed to make every-day transfer and care tasks easier, Sara® Flex from Arjo equips one caregiver with the ability to position a patient from a seated to a safe, secure and comfortable standing position, in one ergonomic movement.
In this evaluation study, the Sara Flex was shown to:
- Allow more forward knee movement during raising and lowering
- Allow more body weight through the feet during raising
- Give one of the closest Centre of Pressure movement patterns to the natural active movement
In addition, the study noted:
- The Sara Flex was the most preferred device in the trial
- The Sara Flex encourages the participant to be more active through sitting and standing assisted transfers
