Product Description


TheResQUp™ originated from a specific concern that was directed to Dr. Peraza in the course of his patient care duties about how to raise fallen patients from the floor to chair level. Extensive research, demonstrations of the prototype ResQUp and discussions with other professional physical therapists and caregivers confirmed the need for such a fall recovery device. Patients need a way to help themselves, and caregivers need tools for safe patient handling that help mitigate physical injuries to them when assisting patients.


The Problem of Falling:

In the United States, more than 1/3 of adults and older fall each year.
About 5.8 million people in this age group fell at least once during a
recent 3-month period. Besides injuries caused by falls, the simple fear
of falling can impact the lives of seniors by causing a reduction in their
level of activity. This in turn leads to a decline in mobility and physical
fitness, which can increase the actual risk of another fall.

Caregivers, whether professional or family members, can also be gravely
affected by this problem. They are often unable to physically assist the
fallen person without danger of injury to themselves. Anticipation of another
fall may also make a caregiver reluctant to allow the senior any independence
also diminishing the senior’s quality of life.


How It Works


The ResQUp™ is an up-from-the-floor mobility device developed and designed
for the specific purpose of aiding patients, healthcare providers, and a wide
variety of caregivers in clinical, assistive care, and in-home settings.
The ResQUp™ is particularly useful in situations where an individual does not
have the volitional strength or abilities to get up from the floor independently.

The uniquely designed and engineered ResQUp™ created by Dr. Al Peraza
utilizes an incremental, ergonomically, and physiologically integrated system
comprised of 4½ inch horizontal levels (3 levels at 4½, 9, & 13½ inches from floor
level) that can be easily retrieved and placed into position while the patient is on the floor.

The purpose of the ResQUp™ is to make it easier for an individual to
negotiate their way up to a chair height (generally ~18 inches) by one
of two methods; 1) pushing themselves up using their hands, or 2) pushing
themselves up using their elbows with minimal or no additional assistance from a caregiver.

Different versions of ResQUp™ that can accommodate bariatric
and pediatric patients are planned to be made available in the future.

 General Application:

  • The ResQUp™ is an essential tool for safe patient handling programs that minimize and/or prevent physical lifting of a patient, thereby reducing the risk of an injury.
  • The ResQUp™ can be utilized by physical rehabilitation and therapeutic facilities (e.g.; acute hospital care, outpatient settings, skilled nursing facilities, rehabilitation hospitals, home health, and medical offices) to train patients in independent mobility from a fallen position and improve patient confidence in their mobility.
  • The ResQUp™ can be utilized to improve patient range of motion and functional strengthening of patients in clinical settings.
  • The ResQUp™ can be utilized by individuals at home to get up from floor level when doing so is difficult or not possible without assistance.
  • The ResQUp™ can be utilized by Emergency Medical Services (EMS) to assist those who have fallen to the floor. Injury to EMS workers will be minimized or eliminated utilizing the ResQUp™.
  • The ResQUp™ can assist individuals in the public (e.g.; schools, hotels, supermarkets, shopping centers, convention centers, arenas) where large groups of individuals gather.

 Product Features, Design and Construction

  • The design of the ResQUp™ incorporates 3 horizontal levels to facilitate the patient’s ascent to a seating position with little or no assistance. The ResQUp™ is purposefully designed so that the patient’s shoulders are in the optimal position of strength during the ascent.
  • Sloped leading edges on the ResQUp™ make ascending more comfortable for the patient and lessen shear forces on skin tissue and bone.
  • The ResQUp™ is ergonomically designed to lessen shoulder, wrist, and hand strain and incorporates hand grips under the lateral edges of each horizontal level.
  • Non-slip PORON® non-absorbing urethane pads are used to provide pressure relief and a padded gripping surface for hands along the lateral horizontal levels of the ResQUp™.
  • The ResQUp™ is composed of low-density polypropylene and is manufactured using rotational molding methods. The process results in a durable composite material yielding a maximum weight limit of 300 lbs while weighing only 15 lbs. When folded for storage, the ResQUp™ measures only 31” long by 11 ½ ” wide by 13 ½ “  high.
  • The ResQUp™ is simply constructed using high-quality stainless steel self-locking fasteners that requires no regular maintenance or servicing.
  • The ResQUp™incorporates a patented design and is equipped with two inward-folding horizontal levels and a deployment system to reduce its storage “foot print” when not in use and to optimize portability and application when needed.

Perfect for In-Home, Assistive Care & Clinical Settings

The ResQUp™ is a patented mobility aid, therapeutic exercise tool, and fall recovery device designed by a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) and Certified Ergonomic Specialist (CES). It is designed for use with patients at risk of falling and for caregivers who wish to safely assist patients up to a seated position following a non-injurious fall.


Recover From Falls with Ease

The ResQUp™ is deployed and positioned while the patient is on the floor. The fallen individual simply negotiates their way up to a chair height (18 inches), or to a standing position, by ascending upwards using their hands or using their elbows by one of two methods as shown. Both methods require minimal or no additional assistance from a caregiver. Instructions are provided in the Package Information Insert and DVD Video that accompany every ResQUp™ purchased.

  1. Finally i can get off the ground myself 5 out of 5

    Posted by Andrew Hippert on Sep 14th 2020

    The Resqup has allowed me to play with my kids on the floor and get out of the pool all independently. I really like how it folds up and can be easily stored away when not in use. There is no installation or putting it together it comes ready to use. Great quality product.

  2. Well constructed, lightweight and easily stored 4 out of 5

    Posted by Sean on Jun 29th 2020

    Have not used the Resqup steps with a patient yet, but they are much nicer than the bulky, heavy metal para ladder that we ordered in the past. The Resqup steps are of good quality construction, lightweight and easily stored. We would purchase again.
