Introduced to the market in April 2016, the StandUp Walker is an innovative 2-in-1 Stand-Assist + Mobility Walker that enables the user to independently lift themselves from a seated position easily and safely. StandUp Walker weighs 10.5 lbs and holds up to 400 lbs. It collapses for transport.
“StandUp Walker combines a static device that helps you get up with a walker that assists you in getting around,” Paulus said. “When someone has difficulty in standing up, it can cost several thousand dollars to equip the home with bars, toilet seat risers and a lift chairs. StandUp Walker can replace all those items and has the added benefit of being able to take it outside the home.”
