SitWalk – sounds like something Chuck Berry invented?
No, it is not a trendy dance from the fifties or a variant of the Chuck’s famous Duck Walk. SitWalk is designed for repositioning a patient; moving the patient further back in a chair or wheelchair. And the device is named after the method of moving a patient backwards in the chair to a more comfortable sitting position. Lean the patient sideways and move one buttock at a time, facilitating a hip-hitch. FootStool can be used to reduce pressure underneath the thighs.
SitWalk is made of nylon and polyester which resists soiling.
- The construction is very strong and therefore very safe to use.
- SitWalk is wide and provides a good supporting surface without pressing in.
- Padded handles for strong, secure grips.
- Four handles on each side allow flexibility and enable a correct working position for the caregiver.
