Patient lifts

About

Patient lifts designed for hoisting and transferring a patient safely and with minimal physical effort. These lifts consist of a C-shaped or U-shaped support base usually including casters, a vertical mast, a pivoting boom, a swivel bar, a seat (sling or rigid), and the lifting mechanism; they are manually, electrically, or battery operated using hydraulic or screw jack lifting mechanisms. Patient lifts are frequently used to transfer patients (e.g., to and from a wheelchair, toilet, or bathtub), reducing the risk of injury to those assisting with the transfer (typically only one person) and of patient drop. Some patient transfer lifts are mounted on tracks to permit patient transfers between rooms or different vertical levels.
