Powered or Non-Powered?
Depending on the users level of mobility, there are two types of stand assist raisers.
Users who have the ability to stand up without help, a non powered device could be considered, however, for a user who does not have the ability to stand but is able to partially bear weight, a powered lift should be used.
A powered stand assist raiser usually contains an electric lifting mechanism, generally powered by a battery and is operated by a handset control. A powered riser makes moving the user a continuous, smooth movement. A handheld control is generally made up of push button control to lift and lower the user.
