Designed to help a person with reduced mobility, stand from a seated position and facilitate their transfer to another surface, the Switch actively encourages the user to participate in the standing process, engaging core muscle groups while improving strength and function. As a secondary function, the Switch can also be utilised to help re-position a patient who has slouched or slipped forward in a chair.
With an impressive safe working load of 180kg (28st), the Switch maintains a very compact footprint and can be wheeled and stored with ease. For added convenience, the Switch quickly separates into two components for effortless transportation, for example in the boot of a car.
As a complimentary accessory, the Oxford Patient handling Belt is available separately. Offered in a choice of sizes, it provides added reassurance and support when standing and during transfer. It also provides a means for care staff to assist the user in rising from a seated position.
This Oxford Switch is available now. For more information, please contact Joerns Healthcare on 0844 811 1156, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our website at www.joerns.co.uk.
