The Ascent stand aid is a powered standing and raising aid suitable for assisted transfers and designed to make everyday mobility-sensitive tasks simple, safe and stress-free.
The Ascent is designed to ease both the residents and the carer experience. The ergonomic 360° swivelling design allows operation by a single caregiver, and the high speed, soft stop/start motion makes transfers smooth and reduces transfer time. This combination allows labour intensive routines to be streamlined, improving efficiency.
Resident comfort and dignity are improved by the removal of the need for manual handling. Height and angle adjustable knee pads, electric leg adjustments, and a neoprene calf strap provide comfort while protecting against tissue damage.
Suitable for transferring residents into a wheelchair, onto toileting facilities, on to a bed or for many other assisted transfers the Ascent is also excellent for standing exercises and promoting mobility.
The safe working load is 225kg/35 stone, therefore making the Ascent suitable for a range of users.
This stand-aid is only for use with clip slings. See our Ascent Stand-Aid sling HSL510 with clip fastening.
