I came across your webpage as researching for our OH&S team, In particular, researching SARA Stedys (we have about 40 in circulation in our facilities). Do you have any direction regarding using transfer/gait belts while sit-to-stand transfer with SARA Stedy?
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your question. At the facility where I am employed, we do not typically use gait belts other than with physical therapy (PT) during the day. However, you could definitely use a sara stedy with a gait belt if desired.
I have a page with the second half providing step by step instructions on how to assist a patient to ambulate using a gait belt. You could certainly combine those methods with the methods discussed on the sara stedy page. Links to both of them are down below.
Please let me know if this answers your question and let me know if you have any further questions.

This is a list of caregiver poems that I have found. I will continue to add more over time. Note that these are not my own work.

When I was only 20 years old I began my first job as a personal caregiver in the home caring for three children.

Are self driving cars a blessing or a curse for the elderly and disabled? This is a very controversial topic with many complicated questions.
