A PT helps safe lift transfer a smiling young man in a wheelchair from sitting to standing using the Rifton Sololift.It was perfect for Sarah! A resident at a long term care facility having difficulty with transfers. Caregivers needed a break. Moving from sit-stand and dependent transfers to the toilet combined with behavioral issues often resulted in disaster. This changed: The vest of the newly purchased lift was a snug and comfortable fit. Sarah’s feet were on the floor and taking what weight they could.

Read how Sarah and her caregivers overcame the barriers to gait training and hygiene care using this piece of equipment. Do you know someone like Sarah?
