The Freeway SA180C is a compact standing aid used to stand up and transfer people with limited mobility safely. This easy-to-maneuver stand aid will reduce the risk and strain to the caregiver.



The Freeway SA180C is a compact sit-to-stand aid that can support elderly or disabled people with limited mobility. The stand aid is designed to provide support and comfort, assisting the user in moving gently from sitting to standing. It is ideal for those who need extra help standing or sitting in a chair.

When used with the Freeway Thoracic Sling, it provides the ultimate sit-to-stand combination. The SA180C compact stand aid and sling work harmoniously to give a very gentle and secure lift experience. As a result, the user is moved more naturally – forwards and upwards – providing support in the lower back, under the feet and lower legs throughout the lift.

This easy-to-use stand aid reduces the risk and strain to caregivers and is perfect for everyday use in both professional and homecare environments. A considerable benefit of a stand aid is that it is mobile and versatile so that a single unit can care for multiple people living in different rooms.

The stand aid features an adjustable lifting arm positioned at an angle to reduce pressure and drag under the arms. This helps to provide a safe and comfortable sit-to-stand movement.

With a 180kg lifting capacity, adjustable knee pad, powered leg opening and market-leading Linak® actuators and motors, this robust unit is suitable for everyday use. It comes equipped with all the vital functions required to safely support someone between seated and standing positions and for safe transfer.

We are proud to design, assemble and test the Freeway SA180C in the UK.

Could you pair this hoist with a Thoracic Support Sling?

Thoracic slings are optional slings explicitly designed for the SA180C, which provide added support to the lower back when the patient is standing.
