The Stand-Up Hoist is very good when helping people to stand up or sit down, however it can be difficult to correctly position a short person into some chairs. The Stand-Up Block is a simple, light-weight block that is placed on the footplate of the Stand-Up Hoist. When the patient’s feet are placed on the Block, it will make them 7cm / 3″ taller, so it will be easier to lower the shorter patients into the back of a chair.
The Block has a wipeable PVC cover and Miracle Grip on the bottom to prevent slipping. The cover can be removed for washing. A large loop is provided so the Stand Up Block can be hung from the handles of the Stand-Up Hoist when not in use.
