If you are homebound due to poor health, then a Stabilizing Post Device to help elderly get up from the floor may be a helpful choice. Often, being in a home or a nursing home is very difficult for older people. Since they are not capable of going to the restroom on their own, some try to sit and remain still.

Others may not have the strength to get up from the floor and need assistance to get back to the chair. Sometimes, they may need assistance to make it to the bathroom when they need it.

You can use a Stabilizing Post Device to help seniors move from the floor to a chair. They can be easily installed in your home, at least one spot.

They do not need special tools, since they are already on the floor. They just need to be laid down on a comfortable surface. For example, you can place them on a gym mat or an exercise ball as a device to help elderly get up from the floor.

Before you install them, make sure you have enough space. A chair may be too uncomfortable for seniors. And once you have enough space, you can then install them.

It would be helpful if you watch the video on how to install the device. Just take note of the way the device should be put down and the way it should be lifted. Also, do not try to lift more than what is allowed by law.

By making sure you have enough space, you can install them on a table. You may need a chair and an armrest. You can find a seat that is adjustable to fit all sizes.

It is recommended that you have a control panel and a mirror where you can see yourself. You will see if you need help or not. The video on how to install the device may also help you.

Make sure you have plenty of pillows and cushions to keep the device in place. Be sure to put it down where you will not cause harm to the person in the chair.

Usually, there are different brands to choose from, but you should consider if you need a model for each chair. Choose one to fit all the needs.

Once you have decided to buy a Stabilizing Post Device to help elderly get up from the floor, you will also have to choose the size and weight. Choose a product that you can move around and use for several years.
