At Safe Patient Solutions, we want you to be successful in getting up from the floor to a seat, walker, bed, or wheelchair, if the situation ever occurs. Successfully getting up from the floor using a mobility device like the ResQUp often requires assessment of your physical abilities. For example;

  • You will need enough strength in your arms and legs to push or lift your body up 4½ inches from the floor to the first level and the subsequent 2 levels.
  • If you do not have the strength to raise yourself up 4½ inches, you may want to consider strengthening your upper/lower extremities. A Physical Therapist is often the most qualified health professional to assist you in safely strengthening your extremities.
  • If you’re very weak or have no strength in your arms or legs, a passive lift may be a more appropriate device to consider.

Our goal is to provide customers with a device that meets most needs for fall recovery and prevention. We often inform seniors and professional caregivers that everyone has different levels of strength and abilities. As a comparison, some may need only a cane to get around their community, whereas another person may require more assistance such as with a wheelchair or motorized scooter.

Please do not hesitate to contact Dr. Peraza at if you have questions you would like to have answered.
