The Comfort Circle
The unique benefits of the Comfort Circle are many. When the arm supports are used by the resident/occupant for support during standing it can relieve the stress on to the hip and knee joints which are particularly vulnerable in elderly people. Arm rests and hand grips provides the patient an instant feeling of security and provides much needed upper body support during the lifting process. Feeling of fer, dizziness and instability are greatly reduces in the patients due to support provided by the arc rest and the sling within the comfort circle, thereby enhancing patient and caregiver confidence. The pro-active pad, a height adjustable knee support, moves the patient/resident to stimulate a natural flexion of the lower leg during standing.
Enhancing Mobility Through Exercise
Sara Plus is the only standing and raising aid that is designed for balance, stepping and walking training. The revolutionary first step system allows simple removal of the footplate and Pro-active pad, Sara Plus becomes an optimal platform for exercise sessions.
Sara Plus simulates a normal sit to stand movement of a healthy, non impaired person without assistance. The sit to stand movement involves over three major joints the hip, the knee and the ankle. The angles visible in these joints when using the Sara Plus are similar to the angles necessary for functional STS movement. The unique geometry of the lift and the combination of the Arc-Best and Proactive Pad allows a more natural extension pattern of the body while standing. This training aspect gives SARA Plus an even more valuables patients/residents and therapists to work together to achieve a natural movement while standing.
Lifting sling is an integral part of any transfer, and a range of solutions are available to suit specific needs. In addition to the basic standing sling, a special BOS sling enables standing in a more upright position, more favorable for rehabilitation. The transfer / walking sling supports residents/patients who need to be transferred in a seated position, and is ideal for walking exercises.
Sara Plus patient lift assists caregivers in moving and mobilizing patients and residents during everyday activities such as transfers and toileting.
SARA Plus extends the mobility-activating benefits of the lift to more patients/residents than ever before and will contribute to improving not only the quality of care, but the quality of the patients/residents everyday lives by increasing mobilization and circulation.
SARA Plus utilizes the ARJO Comfort Circle which enables the caregiver to raise more patients than ever before into a standing position comfortably and securely for stress free dressing, toileting and transferring.
