Cricket Transfer and Transport Aid
Moving around the bedroom from bed to chair is only a short distance, but being able to weight bear, even for a short amount of time can sometimes be painful. This transfer aid is especially designed to also help with balance problems and reduced mobility or leg strength.
Our manual transfer aid, the Cricket, is an ideal solution for those needing a little extra help to stand. Getting up from the bed to go to the toilet, or sit in your favourite chair. The Cricket II is an ideal solution for those who can raise themselves to an upright/semi upright position for about 10 seconds and then re-seat for transfer. Moving from bed to toilet, or chair – in a seated position – around the home.
An ideal solution for those with impaired balance and reduced strength in their legs. An extra support over traditional transfer aids. Off the bed, to the toilet or moving to a chair, the Cricket is a non-powered device simplifying everyday transfers and promoting keeping moving.
And most importantly, maintain personal dignity and independence in your own home.
What else do I need to know about the Cricket Transfer Aid?
Simple and easy to use at home as part of rehabilitation after discharge from hospital, or long-term mobility, with the help of a carer. The Cricket encourages active involvement in standing up and sitting down.
It will fit over an existing toilet so do not need to have a commode in the bathroom or en suite. You can turn easily in a small room and negotiate gaps of only 32cm wide. Offering dignity to sit down on the toilet and not a commode in the bedroom.
Fitted with 4 wheels – and braked castors on the back ensures maximum security and stability. Its compact design is no bigger than a wheelchair making it easy to manoeuvre through standard doorways.
It is important to regularly inspect your Cricket. Check the operation and general condition, along with reviewing the calibration settings. We recommend the unit is checked daily to ensure it is in working order, fully functional and ready for use. Please see image below or visit the Downloads tab above for our Cleaning Guide.
