Liko Sabina Stand Aid

The Sabina stand aid has been designed with a different principle from other stand aids and has an interchangeable section to enable two different lifting bars to be used.

The first bar is the main lifting bar which is wider than normal and the vest that is used comes around the outside of the client's arms instead of underneath.

This enables the vest to lift from behind the back, therefore causing no pain in the armpits which supports clients who must avoid pressure in this area, e.g. clients who might be affected by a stroke.
