Sit-to-stand aids, transfer aids for standing up, bed-to-chair and chair-to-chair transfers, and for standing practice

Multiple Sclerosis, Stroke, Muscular Dystrophy or ALS?

Healthcare professionals and relatives quickly reach their limits when caring for a person with these and other physical disabilities, impairments or special needs – back problems often follow.

The solution: Leonair transfer aids provide tried and tested solutions for healthcare and nursing care. Chair-to-chair aids are devices that help the carer with the transfer of a person from one seat to another, e.g. the bedside to a wheelchair. The person in need of care is brought to a semi-standing or standing position during the transfer. The carer provides minimal assistance during the transfer.

The person’s feet are positioned on a platform. The ROLEO model has a turntable platform. The ROLEO’s sturdy construction and wheels mean the person can be moved in a standing position. However, the person must have adequate active mobility. Leonair aids can also be used to encourage mobilisation.

Leonair GmbH has been developing and producing sit-to-stand aids and transfer aids in Baden-Württemberg, Germany for more than 20 years. Our devices are used in home care and facilities for disabled persons. Our aids for persons with some mobility are available on prescription in Germany and can be bought in specialist shops or directly from the manufacturer Leonair.

This electrically powered aid transfers the person without the need to move the device. The ROLEO is a compact device that can be used in tight spaces. The sling has been designed to support the pelvis. Shoulder problems are avoided. Multiple handles allow the person to train their hands and arms. A seat is available as an optional accessory. It allows transporting the person in a seated position. Standing up and standing can be practised without additional aids.
