Seat assists are pneumatically powered and turn any chair or sofa into a "lift chair". These inexpensive lifting devices provide 80% of the lifting power needed and are portable.
Lift chairs help individuals who may be too weak or unstable when rising from a seated position. These chairs combine the comforts of a recliner with the advanatage of assisted standing and sitting.
Hoyer lifts can be helpful for lifting someone from a bed to a seated or prone position. These may be hydraulic or electric, and various slings and seats are available for the lift. Always seek the help of a trained therapist when learning how to use a hoyer lift.
It is important to choose the correct sling when using a hoyer lift.
