The sit-to-stand buttock strap is to be used in conjunction with a sit-to-stand torso sling. The sit-to-stand buttock strap is not to be used by itself. The buttock strap is perfect for those days the patient needs some extra help and security when using their sit-to-stand lift.
The buttock strap works by going under the patient’s bottom and allow the patient to sit in the buttock strap like a swing and relieve some of the extra weight on their legs. The buttock strap is only used when transferring a resident from a seated position.
