Standing and Raising Aids (SARA)
Standing and Raising Aids (SARA) are also known as "Sit-to-Stand Lifts". These versatile pieces of equipment are easy to use and are designed for individuals with reduced mobility and physical strength who are unable to raise themselves independently. Individuals must be able to weight bear and have a degree of self support. At this time we are able to rent both the SARA Lite and SARA 3000.
The SARA 3000 with a maximum safe working capacity of 440 lbs. has been designed to provide a safe, comfortable environment for transfers. The Deluxe Comfort Sling with its padded under arm bolsters and slip resistant back offer the individual a comfortable and secure attachment to the unit. Along with the support of the kneepad and footplate the individual always feels secure. The powered adjustable chassis legs can be opened to provide better access to a wheelchair, chair, or toilet. The SARA 3000 can also be used for beneficial standing exercises. It helps to improve the quality of life for individuals by building a simple way to maintain mobility into regular handling routines. An optional scale is available.
Available for rental. Call 714-264-4685 for pricing. This item is not covered by Medicare or other insurances.
The SARA Plus is an advanced standing and raising aid with a maximum safe working capacity of 420 lbs. With unique features, the SARA Plus increases and extends the benefits that can be achieved by using a standing and raising aid. This standing and raising aid is designed for balance, stepping, and walking training. Remove the footplate and leg support and the SARA Plus becomes a platform for exercise sessions. In addition to the basic standing sling, a special BOS sling enables standing in a more upright position. This is more favorable for rehabilitation. The transfer / walking sling supports individuals who need to be transferred in a seated position, and is also ideal for walking exercises. An optional scale allows weighing during the standing process. Without the foot support in place the scale can show the level of weight bearing capacity.
Available for new purchase or rental (only one available for rental at this time). Call for pricing. This item is not covered by Medicare or other insurances.
The SARA Flex is Arjo’s latest addition to their line of Standing and Raising Aids. It will handle individuals up to a weight of 440 lbs and has been designed to make every-day transfer and care tasks easier and less painful for the individual by using a soft pliable membrane to support the lower leg. It uses the traditional Arjo Standing Sling and with the addition of the optional Central Hook can be used with their specialized Transfer Sling. As with all of Arjo’s SARA products, excluding the SARA Stedy, it is fully battery powered for raising and lowering as well as opening and closing the legs.
Available for new purchase or rental (currently only one available).
SARA Stedy and Stedy Compact
The SARA Stedy and Stedy Compact are designed for individuals that are stronger and have more capabilities. They promote mobility while adding support that encourages more mobile individuals to stand up independently. This helps minimize manual handling by the caregiving staff allowing the individual to feel more confident and self-reliant.
They have a safe working load of 400 lbs, pedal-operated chassis legs that adjust easily to optimize access, and an innovative pivoting seat that improves transfer efficiency and patient stability.
The SARA Stedy is designed for individuals in the height range of 4’11” – 6’6” and the SARA Compact is designed for smaller individuals in the height range of 4’6” – 5’8”.
