The Sara Stedy promotes safe transfers, mobility and increases user mobilization while standing in a safe and secure environment. An innovative pivoting seat creates a comfortable platform when moving to the next seat and allows for prolonged standing with the assurance that one can easily sit if needed.

Both models are highly maneuverable in tight spaces and is constructed with high strength and lightweight aluminum. Better than a wheelchair or transport chair the Stedy maximizes efficiency for transfers from bed to chair or onto a toilet and is easily used with just one caregiver with minimal assistance as the user will contribute the majority of effort.
