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 to facilitate repositioning of a user, e.g. when moving the user further back in a chair or wheelchair.
The device is named after the method of moving a user backwards in the chair to a more comfortable sitting position. Lean the user 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.
