    Stand aid and slings for small elderly person

    Hello
    I hope some could help me with some information.

    We would like to trial a stand aid which will fit through doorways - 69cm wide. We would prefer not to have to widen doorways.

    The slings also have to be for a small elderly person.

    Dimensions
    Width across door = 69cm

    Height sink from floor = 83 cm [May help in working out whether the handle she holds onto is the right height for her]

    Measurement Info for safety harness: approx
    Height – 4feet
    Weight – 35kg
    Waist = 98cm
    From armpit to waist = approx. 15cm
    Length from waist to knee = 39cm
    Length from waist to feet = 77cm

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi Shona

    It is not clear whether you are looking at standing frames or standing hoists. I suspect it might require more than just the raw dimensions to determine whether the equipment can be easily and safely used. I would forward your query to suppliers on this report to narrow the search.

    Sometimes your community occupational therapist can give hands-on help. A one-to-one assessment may sort out any niggling problems. If you haven't had such a visit there is information here;https://www.gov.uk/apply-needs-asses...ocial-services
