EASY ON STAFF. CHALLENGING TO PATIENTS.
If a patient can stand, they should use S3.
Excessive sitting = more falls, hypertension, high blood sugar, high cholesterol, obesity, cancer, cardiovascular disease and early mortality (JAMA 2008, 2010). S3 facilitates independent standing balance exercise to reverse these effects (JAMA Int Med 2018; Clin Rehab 2011).
With its 270-degree handlebar and 600-lb working capacity, patients have more confidence to perform high-intensity exercise and clinic activities (e.g., balloon toss, reaching).
Dressing (e.g., donning pants) and getting patients up from the floor also becomes easier!
