Joerns Healthcare Bolsters its Active Stand-Aid Offer with the Oxford® Up

Joerns Healthcare’s NEW Oxford Up was previewed at three separate events, earlier this year to include the NAEP and RCOT Conference and Exhibitions in June 2019 as well as the Moving & Handling People Conference in August. The overwhelmingly positive response has exceeded expectations and Joerns fully anticipate the Up becoming a key product within Oxford’s Professional Series.



The Up is a manual stand-aid and seated transfer device, designed to support safe and efficient patient transfers and rehabilitation. Suitable for clients who require some assistance when standing but are able to participate in the process, the Up can play a supportive role in patient rehabilitation and independence.

Manufactured from aluminium and weighing just 22.5kg, the Up is among the lightest and most nimble in its category; but don’t be fooled, a maximum safe working load of 200kg (31st) also places it among the elite. High-grade castors offer outstanding manoeuvrability across a range of floor surfaces and ensure minimal effort on the part of the care-giver.



The soft moulded seat pads are contoured for comfort and can be swung away to allow access for the patient when standing and sitting. Where required, the Oxford Deluxe Standing Sling (with Clips) is available in three standard sizes and offers additional seated support.

As with all Oxford products, injury reduction, fall prevention and ergonomic principles were fundamental considerations during the Up’s development. Perfect positioning of both the swing-away seat pads and knee support help ensure optimum patient positioning. Adjustable legs and a contoured base allow improved access for the patient and promote better posture and ease of use.



The Oxford Up is available to order now. For more information, please contact Joerns Healthcare on 0844 811 1156, send an email to or visit our website at
