Biodex Mobility Assist
It is important to get patients up and walking. This basic activity overcomes circulation problems, disuse atrophy, stimulates neural pathways, and plays a role in the psychology of a patient’s sense of independence.
The Biodex Mobility Assist™ is a motorized lift-assist device that brings patients from a seated to standing position with the protection of a safety harness. As the patient stands using correct biomechanics, their center of gravity remains within the support of the device.
Once standing, the patient has controlled body weight and standing balance and can initiate ambulation. If they can move their legs, they can walk with the Mobility Assist. From bedside or wheelchair to anywhere in the clinic or hospital setting – even outside to enjoy good weather in the courtyard – the Mobility Assist will mobilize patients who have difficulty rising from a seated to standing position.
Safe Patient Handling
While essential to invest in equipment and training to prevent patient falls, it is equally important to protect therapists, rehabilitation nurses, caregivers and visiting family from injury when trying to lift or support a patient.
Currently eleven states have enacted “Safe Patient Handling” laws that improve safety for both patient and healthcare provider. Powered lift-assist devices promote rehabilitation and facilitate functional recovery – while maintaining safe conditions.
Universal harness – Securely supports patients during lift and ambulation.
Safe patient support – Encourages independent movement and addresses disuse atrophy.
No patient lifting required – Mitigates injury to staff and reduces risk of falls.
Frame – Fits around standard wheelchairs and can pass through 36" doorway.
Motorized control – Either therapist or patient can operate the hand-held controller for assisted standing.
Rechargeable battery – Easily recharged to provide many hours of service.
