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?

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.
