This category is devoted to patient lifts and slings, which work together to form complete patient transfer systems. Choose among our mechanical lifting devices for patients.
Lifts are mechanisms used to hoist the disabled patient that needs to be moved, while slings hook up to the lift’s arm and cradle the patient during transfer.
We carry manual, power, stand up, overhead, bath, and pool lifts, along with a variety of patient slings.
With offerings from top brands like Invacare, Medline, and Drive, available at affordable discount prices, you can’t go wrong! If you’re looking for a safe, efficient way to transfer the person in your care from one room or area to another, look no further.
Patient hoists were developed to assist carers in moving patients via a suitable manual handling method. Also to assist in reducing healthcare related injuries at work.
Hoists are often installed into homes to help patients, however they can also be installed into homes for those who need assistance at home or receive care in their own home.
Hoists can make tasks a lot easier and more efficient for carers and provide comfort and support for the patients themselves. There are many hoists available on the market, all with varying specifications and capabilities.
Slings for Patient Lifts are used together with patient lift systems to transfer a disabled patient from one place to another such as from bed to a chair or from a wheelchair into a bath tub.
They are easy for the caregiver to use and provide secure support to the patient. These slings are available in a variety of styles and fabrics to meet specific patient needs.
The mobile floor lifter is used in a homecare environment as well as an aged care facility or hospital. The primary benefit of using a hoist versus performing patient handling techniques with staff is that it reduces the potential for injury of both the carer and the patient.
When trained correctly, it may be possible to transfer with reduced staff, thereby reducing costs.
Available also are portable patient hoists. These portable hoists also fold and are designed to be easily transported by one person. This allows a user to travel by plane, train, cruise ship, or any means that is well designed to support people with disabilities. Depending on the level of mobility, the user may be able to travel alone or with one caregiver.
There are different kinds of patient hoists; however, they all operate using the same method. A sling supports the patient and attaches to the sling bar of the unit. Once the patient is securely supported the care giver operates the lifting mechanism. This is the first part of the transfer.
