Tip of the Month
Standing from a chair and other surfaces
Getting up successfully from a chair, this is something that we do not pay much attention too until we have difficulty with it. Whether its the toilet, bus stop or at a friends house these tips can make all the difference.
1) Start by coming to the front of the seat
2) Make sure your feet are flat and slightly behind your knees
3) Allow your weight to come forward ' NOSE OVER TOES'
4) Use your hands to push up into standing
Remember to always reach back to the surface you are about to sit on with both hands, to prevent falls ensure the surface does not move.
