Sit–to-Stand Patient Lift Info

Sit-to-Stand Lifts are designed to lift patients who are partially dependent with some upper body strength, can stand but have difficulty walking, can sit up on the edge of a bed with or without assistance, and are able to bend hips, knees, and ankles. Standing lifts are used to help the patient rise to a standing position from a bed, wheelchair, or commode while staying actively involved in the lifting process.

Stand Assist lifts fix the patients legs in position exerting pressure on the patient's caves as the belt or strap is tightened by the lift mechanism.

A manual Sit-to-Stand Lift is operated by a manual pump lever which raises the cradle and sling. While the electric ones are operated by a hand control using either a standard electrical outlet or by a re-chargeable battery. All electric lifts can be operated manually as a back-up in the case of a power failure.

Sit to stand patient lifts also known as stand assist lifts have become very popular over the last few years because of the added advantages over the regular style hoyer lifts. Sit to stand lifts allow the patients to use their own legs unlike a regular hoyer lift which will promote some form of independence from the patient. The regular style patient lifts will just pick the patients up in a ball or sitting position while the stand assist lifts will allow the patient to use their own legs and feel a lot more confidence in themselves. The other biggest reason for the increase in standing lifts is the increase in back injuries to caregivers and medical personnel from manually lifting and twisting to pick a patient up from the side of the bed and putting them into a chair or a bedside commode.

How to use a Standing Assist Patient Lift:

Standing Sling

Deluxe Sit-to-Stand Padded Patient Lift Sling

The standing slings for these types of lifts are models INVR130 and DSLSA2. This type of sling is known as a standing sling or a torso sling, it lifts from behind the back and under the arms and works well for patients who need a lot of help to raise themselves but who can then stand firmly on their own once up.

Lumex Sit to Stand Buttock Strap Patient Sling

Model DSLSA9 is known as a buttocks strap and is available for additional support for use with a standing sling. The buttock strap is used by coming under the patient’s bottom and picking them up giving them more support and putting them into a sitting position in case they do not want to use their legs.

Sit to Stand Transport Sling:

Model: R134 is a transport sling for transferring resident from bed to chair, chair to car or general in-room transport. This model slings is to be used by itself and it does the job of the standing sling and buttock strap in one. Do not raise resident to a full standing position while using the transport sling.Sit to Stand Transport Sling

DO NOT use any kind of material (such as a plastic back incontinence pad or cushion) between the patient and sling as it may cause the patient to slide out of the sling during transferring.

DO NOT use a standing sling in combination with a patient lift as a transport device. It is intended to transfer an paitient from one resting surface to another (such as a bed to a wheelchair). Moving a person using a standing sling in combination with a patient lift over ANY distance is NOT recommended.

Every time a caregiver uses a sling; the caregiver must take the time to inspect the sling for the following:

  • The sling is clean, void of body fluids, food, and other substances. If not, the sling must be set aside for laundering and another sling acquired for the transfer. NOTE: Spot cleaning of small areas on the sling may be done using germicidal wipes.
  • The sling is free of rips, tears, holes, and so on; if the label is not attached to the sling; or if the label cannot be read, the staff person is to use a different sling.

NOTE: The proper choice of sling is imperative for the safety and comfort of the entire lift process. When an improper sling is used, there is a high risk for serious injury.

NOTE: It is recommended to lock the rear casters ONLY when positioning or removing the sling (standing or transfer) from around the patient.

The Lumex Stand Assist Model: LF1600 is a very unique in that it does not require a sling to transport the patient.

Lumex Stand Assist Model: LF1600

This sit-to-stand unit is intended for patients that can hold their own body weight but who find walking short distances difficult.

Unlike most sit-to-stand lifts, the Lumex Stand Assist is used by grasping the middle bar and then using one’s own strength to pull themselves up so that the padded split seat can be put into position to form a comfortable and stable transport seat.

This transport assistance unit is entirely manual, in other words, it uses no electricity to operate.

An electric sit-to-stand lift is still recommended for residents with limited strength and stability.

IMPORTANT: Before using a Sit-to-Stand Patient Lift, please read and adhere to the safety precautions and warnings. Failure to do so could result in serious injury or damage to you or the patient lift.

DO NOT attempt any transfer without aforementioned approval of the patient’s healthcare provider. With their assistance, select the sling that best serves the needs, comfort and safety of the patient being lifted.

The operator should practice the entire lifting procedure several times with a capable individual acting as patient. NOT a patient. It is imperative that the caregiver to know how a patient will feel in the patient lift.

It is suggested that the operator try all the various lifting slings and equipment until the operator is confident with how the patient lift operates.

Sit-to-stand lifts should only be used to transfer patients/residents from one sitting location to another over the shortest distance possible.

The lifting procedures should be explained to the patient before the actual lifting.

DO NOT roll casters over any object while the user is in the sling.

To ensure stability while transferring a patient, the patient lift legs should be locked in the maximum open position. ALWAYS keep the patient centered over the base and facing the caregiver operating the lift.

DO NOT put anything (e.g. cushion, pad, pillow, etc...) between the user and the sling. This may cause user to slide out of the sling and cause injury.

Know the maximum weight capacity of the specific lift you are operating and DO NOT exceed the maximum weight allowed.

The patient lift should receive maintenance on a regular schedule and should be inspected daily for proper operation.

Warning: Risk of musculoskeletal injury (MSI) from awkward postures and overexertion. Follow procedure to reduce risks. Signs and symptoms of a MSI include pain, burning, numbness, tingling, swelling, loss of movement and/or strength in a body part.
