Moving from bed to chair to toilet – move with dignity in this seated transfer aid room to room. Moving room to room, at home, school or day care.
We all have big homes with lots of space – right? Rehab equipment is not always designed for homecare. Compact and portable design – the Cricket is no bigger than a wheelchair. Maintain sit to stand function You do not need to learn anything new – the Cricket mimics how we first learnt to stand. Pull or push up to get on and off bed, chair or toilet. With the frame around you, we can help you keep your balance.
Do you get tired quickly? It can be hard work getting up but the good news is you really don’t need to stand for long. You do not need to achieve a full stand, just ensure enough clearance to secure the seat on to the other side. Weight bearing through your legs in a semi or full stand for less than a minute, whilst a carer secures the seat underneath.
Every therapist wants you to do you exercises every day to build your strength. We know, that isn’t always easy. So, the cricket is a great rehab tool too. When used daily as an exerciser frame, the Cricket will help with circulation, breathing, digestion and muscle tone. Helping you to do what you want to do for yourself – without having to ask.

My recovery has baffled quite a few!? I was very lucky to be lent a Cricket, it has aided my recovery terrifically” Alison, Community Therapist Cumbria “At weekends we run on skeleton staff and to train our patients on ‘sit to stand’, in the past we have used zimmer frame, secured with carers foot to keep it from moving, and worked hands on with the patient.? The Cricket eliminates all this and allows for a much safer exercise.” Judith Craig CHP Offices Stobhill Hospital “We like the independence it can still promote in clients through their need to actively participate in sit to stand”[/builder_content]
