The ResQUp is intended for the specific purpose of making it possible for an individual to negotiate their way up to a chair height (generally ~18 inches). One of three methods usually works for most people. All three methods require minimal or no additional assistance from a caregiver;

  1. pushing themselves up using their hands (Illustration A),
  2. pushing themselves up using their elbows and legs (Illustration B), or
  3. climbing up on their hands and knees (Illustration C).

If you do not have sufficient upper body strength, you may not be able to lift yourself a height of 4½“ to the first level. In this case, you will need additional assistance from a caregiver.  

Physical Therapists significantly improve mobility to perform daily activities. Please consult a physical therapist or qualified healthcare professional if you have any questions about whether the ResQUp is an appropriate device for you to use.
