The Mackworth TA180 is a cost-effective stand aid and transfer support unit encouraging more mobile clients to stand un-assisted. In addition, the versatility of the Mackworth TA180 allows for ease of use in a variety of care and health environments.
Easy to use:
The TA180 stand aid is easy to use, with opening legs to navigate chairs and other obstacles and braked rear casters to keep the unit stable while the patient raises themselves from a seated position.
Once in the raised position, the rear seat pads are moved into place to prevent falls, and the patient can then be transferred between beds, chairs, toilets etc., without needing a wheelchair.
Suitable for use with clients who have some mobility but need that little bit of extra help due to reduced leg strength or balance.
An easily fitted and adjusted back support belt is also available for clients who require extra assurance during transfers.

What is a patient stander/lifter
A standing hoist/lifter is used when a person has difficulty standing but can still do so with some assistance. Standers are good for transferring from bed to chair or similar activities. Similar to a portable hoist, but is not intended to be a complete full-body lift.
Suitable for quick transfers that involve sitting to stand and back again.
Also suitable for transporting people in a sitting position.
Requires flat, level floors can be challenging to manoeuvre on carpets.
Requires effort to move and position correctly.
Challenging to lift from standard domestic beds and seating as the legs need to pass under the furniture.
It can put pressure on the lower legs causing pain, not usually suitable for people with limited joint movement.
