As we age, it sometimes becomes harder to stand from a sitting position and we may need some assistance. In this video, narrated by Kate Sheehan, Occupational Therapist, The OT Service, you will see how the SitnStand portable rising seat enables sitting and standing independence from any chair, in any location - and is designed to help individuals live life to the full.
The innovative SitnStand rising seat can be used in any room in the home and fits neatly into a bag so that it can be used in the wider community and on holiday. It is battery-powered and provides a stable and controlled height adjustable platform so controlled sit-to-stand transfers can be achieved, whilst reducing the risk of falls and musculoskeletal strains.
Expertly developed over a decade by the Israeli specialist innovator Life Assistant Ltd, this lightweight and transportable solution is ideal for older users and those with limited mobility, facilitating safe standing within the home and the wider external environment.
