Instead of caregivers risking injury to themselves by trying to lift a person who cannot sit up alone, Powered Lifts can pull them up gently and securely. There are sit to stand lifts, inside lifts and models that have a U-shaped base. They work with slings that envelop the user.
When someone is disabled, weak or unable to pull themselves up out of a bed or chair, powered lifts can do the job. A sling is attached around the person and by using a series of hooks, the Powered Lifts can gently, safely and securely pull the person up to a sitting position or carefully place the person directly into a wheelchair. Powered lifts take the strain off the caregiver, which can prevent injury. The various options on Powered Lifts include and adjustable U-shaped base, an oversize handle, a reverse actuator that improves legroom and compact storage when not in use.
