A complete patient lift system consists of two components: a sling that holds the patient, and a lift that mechanically or automatically raises/lowers the patient from a stationary position. Lifts systems are designed to help caregivers and nurses easily and safely lift and transfer a person with limited mobility. This is especially useful for patients who are obese or elderly, and for solo caregivers who do not have the capacity and strength to safely lift the patient.
As with slings, lifts vary widely in their construction, features, and intended user, and you must take several factors into consideration as you decide upon a model. Here are some things to keep in mind as you make your decision:
The typical patient lift features a sling that helps carry and transfer a person from the bed to a chair or a chair to a toilet, with the aid of a caregiver.
The stand-assist lift is designed specifically to help the patient into a standing position. This type of patient lift is ideal for partial weight-bearing users who need additional support while standing and walking.
Most lifts and slings feature a five or six-point cradle design to ensure stability and security. Generally speaking, the more points, the more support.
Models, like the Drive Bariatric Battery Powered Lift, come equipped with higher lift ranges, allowing patients to be transferred to higher surfaces.
Typically, lifts are powered by rechargeable batteries that the user can power up via a standard wall outlet. For those would prefer not to depend on a battery, we also carry hydraulic models that are powered by a pump.
Battery-powered units typically feature alarms to notify you when the battery charge is low, as well as emergency stop buttons. Hydraulic models often come equipped with brakes to keep the unit in place while the patient is being transferred.
Some patient lifts, like this one from Drive, have adjustable width for easy storage when not in use. Others have interchangeable casters of varying sizes, to allow the lift to fit more easily underneath the bed frame, saving space.
All of our lifts are capable of accommodating at least 450 pounds. Bariatric models, like this battery powered lift, have a higher weight capacity – up to 600 pounds.
Patient lifts are designed provide support, comfort, and safety. We carry a large selection of patient lifts to accommodate all users. If you still need help choosing a lift, please call us at 1-800-998-7750 Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
