    Good afternoon,
    I am trying to create a simple list of contraindications for when not to use the steady (Eddy or Sara or similar!) Any others I have forgotten?

    Patient needs to have trunk control and sitting balance,
    be able to weight bear on at least one leg (or prosthesis)
    Does not have a full leg plaster cast
    Is able to understand and comply with instructions

    Do you agree the patient needs to hold on with at least one hand?

    Many thanks
    Eleanor

    Yes I agree that the patient needs to be able to hold on with at least one hand when using a Sara Steady I think have covered most of the the contra indication
