FULL BODY LIFT
The full body lift has several advantages. It allows heavy patients to be transferred while decreasing stress on caregivers while also reducing the number of nursing staff required to move patients. It also reduces the chance of orthopedic injury from lifting patients. Patients who have medical conditions that do not allow them to be bent and compressed by the sling as they are hoisted (i.e., cannot withstand "vertical transfer") will require specialized slings which can lift horizontally, or use other assistive devices for transfer.
TYPES OF FULL BODY LIFTS
Electric Full Body Lift
These powered patient lifters are perfect for transfers from bed to chair, chair to bath or commode, and will save the caregiver's back. The smooth, quiet transfer of a power lifter reduces patient anxiety and provides more focus on the person being lifted. Electric patient lifts come with powerful rechargeable power-pack batteries that fully charge in 4 hrs. The easy-to-use power system reduces caregiver injury and provides more security for the patient during transfer. Simply charge the battery at night or when the lift is not in use. Batteries charge fully in 4 hours. The high-torque electric motors are capable of lifting from 450-lbs up to 1000-lbs.View Lifts
