The Mackworth SA180 is a standing aid used to safely stand up and transfer people with limited mobility, while also reducing the risk and strain to the caregiver.



The Mackworth SA180 is a stand-aid that can be used to support elderly or disabled people with limited mobility. The stand aid is ideal for those who need a little extra support when standing or sitting in a chair and can also be used for the safe transfer of patients.

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 huge benefit of a stand aid is that it is mobile and versatile, so a single unit can be used to care for multiple people, living in different rooms.

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 and comes equipped with all the vital functions required to safely support someone between seated and standing positions, as well as for safe transfer.

We are proud to assemble and test the Mackworth SA180 in the UK.

Why not pair this hoist with one of our popular slings

The stand aid, which has looped sling attachments, can be used with an active sling to provide additional support to the patient as they are standing. Mackworth, Prism, and Care-ability branded slings provide excellent levels of comfort and support to the patient and are recommended for use with the Mackworth SA180.
