Purpose:

1. The use of a leg lift device is recommended especially for patients who have difficulty mobilizing the post-surgical leg secondary to pain and weakness.
2. Slightly raise trunk and lean on the opposite elbow. Hold the leg lift handle with the hand on the post-surgical side and bring the loop over the foot.
3. Push self up to long sitting while continuing to lean on extended arms.
4. Slowly scoot opposite leg towards and over the edge of the bed.
5. Continue to lean opposite hand on the bed.  Bring opposite foot on the floor.  Using the leg lift, slowly drag and scoot the post-surgical leg towards the edge of the bed.
6. Continue to carry the post-surgical leg off the bed using the leg lift.
7. Gently lower post-surgical leg and foot on the floor.
8. When in sitting position, ensure equal weightbearing on either side of the pelvis to maintain better balance.

Target Response:  
At the end of activity, the patient will transition from supine to short sitting without feeling strain/pain on the operated hip.

Precautions/ Special notes:
Ensure pain-free movements as possible. For a full review of the hip precautions, please refer to the hip dos and don’ts handouts. Always have someone supervise a patient who has not achieved mastery of the process.
