Why the Summit
The Summit features an actuator that assists in standing the patient when properly connected to a loop-style sit to stand sling. For example, if the user needs moderate assistance to initiate standing, the caregiver can activate it by pressing the raise button on the control pendant. Additionally, the padded telescoping handlebar on the Summit can be positioned at a range of breadths. As a result, it allows for easier sling application and can accommodate a wider range of patient sizes.
The Summit is a versatile device that has a removable footplate for patient ambulation. There is also a convenient oxygen tank holder and IV pole attachment option available. As a result, no more having to follow behind a patient with an IV pole, or oxygen tank, requiring additional caregivers.
Need to get around a commode, toilet, or chair? No problem – the Summit has an expandable base. Simply push and hold the close or open button on the control pendant for closer access to the patient.
