Maintain mobility and function

Are you a carer or OT – do you look after someone who needs help getting around their home? Recovering from a stroke, looking to maintain standing function or reduced mobility – we can help you.

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.
