The StrapStand is a sit to stand stander that lifts the user directly from a wheelchair. It increases compliance for people who have difficulty transferring. Typical strap standers push the user forward while lifting, causing excessive pressure on the knees, while the specially designed lifting arms of the EasyStand StrapStand gently raise, then gradually pull the user into standing position. A narrow footprint allows the unit easy access through standard doorways, and the 350 lbs. weight capacity allows facilities to stand larger clients.
