The LiftWalker comes with two retractable poles that function as a stand assist aid, providing safety for care givers and safe independence for the patient. Medical studies have overwhelmingly proven that the effect of manual lifting often results in injuries to both the caregiver and the patient. The LiftWalker allows the patient to pull themselves up by holding both poles and having the caregiver steady the walker itself. The patient then has the ability to lift their own body weight without the strain of pulling and tugging from the caregiver, which often causes harm to both parties. LiftWalker is simply an adaptive device that allows patients to remain, as independent as possible, with a greater quality of life by promoting dignity and stimulation. No matter what the circumstances residents need to safely stand up and ambulate as much as possible, the innovative LiftWalker will provide convenient safe assisted independence, anywhere and anytime.
