Providing assistance for caregivers, these solutions are fully manual or use power and hydraulic components.

About Patient Lift Assist Devices

Lift assist devices are recommended when patients have little to no mobility and help decrease the amount of physical stress placed on the caregiver. At the same time, the design helps reduce potential falls in transfer while providing support and stability to a patient.

Types of patient lifts include:

  • Manual lifts, during which multiple levers support the patient; caregivers will exert some degree of physical strength to aid the transfer.
  • Electric or power lifts, which use AC or DC power to move a series of levers that support the patient.
  • Portable and foldable lifts, which are designed to be used in multiple locations, including in your home and on the go.
  • Sit-to-stand patient lifts, which helps patients move from a sitting to a standing position.
  • Ceiling lifts, which use an overhead design to help lift or lower a patient.
  • Floor lifts, which help a patient stand up after a fall.
