Here are some basic needs of a sit to stand transfer:
Sit to stand transfers require both leg strength and power by using the quads and hip extensors to lift the weight of the body against.
There should be enough sitting balance by the patient. If there is none, use 3 -5 people for the transfer.
Range Of Motion
This will vary depending on how tall you are and how low your sitting surface is. The higher the sitting surface, the less power and range of motion is needed for the transfer.
Ideally you will need 100 degree knee flexion in at least one knee and 110 to 120 degrees of hip/trunk flexion along with the ability to push off the bed and hold on to a walker.
For people with hip replacements, limit their hip/trunk flexion to 90 degrees.
