Stand/Gait Training Safety and security are key
For rehabilitation tasks, such as after an operation or injury, a patient lift is an invaluable aid. It’s important to choose an aid that does not hamper the patient's physical development, but which is there as support and provides the security to encourage progress. With a patient lift and the right aid, often the rehabilitation time can be reduced considerably.
Liko® lifts are frequently used in rehabilitation for lifting to and from the floor or for gait training.
The sit-to-stand lift can aid in the raising operation and then the patient can train in a standing position.
Mobile Lifts and Overhead Lifts
Many Liko® patient lifts can be used for standing and gait training. Especially suitable are mobile lifts which are equipped with Armrests and have a somewhat higher lifting interval, for example Golvo or Viking XL/L/M (Armrests are available as accessories for the Viking series).

Naturally, an overhead lift installed in a straight rail (above the bars) or a traverse system are very popular thanks to the generous lifting height and the fact that the lift is not in the way. Here it can be appropriate to use a walking aid as support, a solution which also can work well together with a mobile lift Read more about our overhead lifts »
For standing and gait training with a mobile or overhead lift, consider Liko® MasterVest, model 60/64 and Liko® LiftPants, model 92. The MasterVest takes the heaviest load around the upper body and sometimes under the arms. The LiftPants support primarily in the crotch, which can suit patients who are sensitive to pressure on the upper body. Special padding in the crotch relieves the pressure.
The Sabina® sit-to-stand lift or the RollOn raising support are excellent aids for primarily older persons who have difficulties getting up but who then can stand more or less by themselves.
