The features will vary based on the type of lift used. Some will include slings, while others will include belts or straps to keep the patient in place. The patient lifts can also vary in size, and they may have different types of controls for moving the patient.
How patient lifts work
Patient lifts today will typically use a hydraulic system to help move the patient. However, others may use manual power. As mentioned, there are two different types of lifts. The sling lift is common for those patients who have limited mobility. The lift allows heavier patients to be transferred more easily, which reduces the stress on the patient as well as those who are caring for the patient. It also reduces the chance of orthopedic injury. The sit-to-stand patient lifts are for those who have some mobility, but who do not have enough strength to get out of a bed, chair, or wheelchair and get into a standing position.
About patient lifts
A patient lift, which could also be called a patient hoist, tends to come in one of two different varieties. They have sling lifts, as well as sit-to-stand lifts. They are assistive devices that help people move between a bed and a chair, and other resting places. These lifts are common in hospitals and nursing homes, as well as for those who are receiving home health care.
