Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF)
- Eliminate multi-person transfers.

S3 makes transfers/standing exercise easy and boosts patient fitness.
EASE UP ON STAFF… CHALLENGE PATIENTS.
If a person can stand, he/she 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 exercise to reverse these trends (JAMA Int Med 2018; Clin Rehab 2011).
With its 270-degree handlebar and 600-lb. working capacity, patients can confidently perform high-intensity exercise + activities (e.g., balloon toss, reaching).
Dressing (e.g., donning pants) and getting people up from the floor are also easier!
