The DELTA Stander can be used by people with a wide range of conditions; adults with spinal and head injuries, Multiple Sclerosis and Motor Neurone Disease all have the potential to stand using this piece of equipment.
There are two lifting mechanisms available for the DELTA and transfer can be made from a static chair, wheelchair or height adjustable bed.
The manual lifting mechanism is suitable for lower lesion spinal injuries and paraplegics with good shoulder and arm strength. The manual belt will control lifting as the user rises to standing. If the user should wish to stop during the standing process the belts will lock into position, providing reassuring support. This ensures that the user has maximum confidence in standing at their own pace.
The electric lifting mechanism features a motorised belt adjustment system which is capable of lifting up to 120kg (19 stone), there is an updated motor available capable of lifting 140kg (22 stone). The mechanism will allow those with moderate trunk control to raise themselves from sitting to standing and those with limited trunk control to be guided into standing with attendant assistance.
