Sussex lodge provide mobility aid for Chichester hospital

Tuesday, 11 September 2018

The Friends of Chichester Hospitals charity and local Lodge of Union No. 38, have donated £13,575 to purchase a Sara Combilizer mobility aid for use in St Richard’s Hospital’s intensive care ward

Critically ill patients can now start their recovery more quickly, with the sophisticated device enabling a patient to regain confidence, a sense of balance and awareness of what is going on around them. 

The mobility aid can be converted from a flat bed to a chair with variable angles, and even allows a patient to be raised to a standing position while fully supported by a harness and a variety of lateral supports. 

Jane Ramage, chairman of the charity, said: ‘The Combilizer will make a real difference for patients and the staff who care for them when critical illness strikes. We even had to wait for delivery because it’s in such high demand.’
