Lopital Lotus is an active stand-up aid, for people who are still able to stand independently and have sufficient trunk stability, but can no longer walk or find it hard to do so. Once the client has sat down on the Lotus, the caregiver may safely and efficiently move him or her. Lotus active standup aid is intended for short transfers, for example from bed to toilet. As the client sits down in an active sitting position, less strength is required to get back into a standing position. Both client and caregiver will find this aid very comfortable to use. The Lotus has swing-away seat pads, flexible lower-leg supports and spreading legs. The spreading legs ensure that the Lotus can be moved close to the client, who can then actively sit down on it. The Lotus encourages the client to participate actively in transfers, which helps train the muscles, and so improves independence.
