Frequently Asked Questions

Q. "I noticed there are assistance levels on these products, can you tell me which number means what, etc.?"
A. The levels are....

Assistance Level 1: Minimal - I can stand up or transfer on my own, but need some support for safety. I may use a cane and/or a walker on occasion.

Assistance Level 2: Moderate - I require firm or solid support to be able to complete standing or transfers. I may use a cane and/or a walker on occasion. I occasionally use a scooter on days where I'm feeling a bit tired.

Assistance Level 3: Maximum - I am not able to perform standing and transferring without assistance. I require leaning & resting support. I depend on my walkers / wheelchair to get around.

Assistance Level 4: Powered Assistance - I require the use of a mechanical lift or powered device to safely perform transfers. I will apply most, if not all, of my body weight on the transfer aide. I use a wheelchair / scooter to get around.

Q. "What is the weight capacity of your products?"
A. Generally, the weight capacity is 300 lbs/136kg. We do have a heavy duty SuperPole available with a weight capacity of 450 lbs/205kg , and the P.T. Rail has a weight capacity of 400 lbs/181kg.
