Some of the best lifts can be found by browsing through our manual, power, electric, stand assist and bariatric lifts. Choosing the right patient lift can be hard if you do not have experience. Safety is always your goal when transporting a patient from room to room, or from wheelchair to another location. Many options such as manual hydraulic and power patient lifts make life a bit easier than jerking a patient around with a gait belt. Lets discuss the types of patient lifts for sale.
Manual Patient Lifts
Manual lifts are used by pumping a hydraulic cylinder that contains an actuator. Once the actuator and boom is at its desired height, a release tab located on the cylinder is used to lower the patient safely in a seated or horizontal position. Manual patient lifts for sale are economically friendly and provide rigid use.
Electric Patient Lifts
Electric patient lifts are used in most nursing facilities. They require effortless use with the push of a button. The power patient lifts feature a battery powered unit that is easily charged. Each charge on a battery powered patient lift can give as many as 200 lifts per charge cycle. That is a substantial amount of use for a 24v DC system. Electric patient lifts are easy to use and come with a free sling for use. Power lifts for paralyzed individuals provide excellent use for smooth and safe operation. Paralysis is not easy when handling a patient. This is considered dead weight and could be harmful to your back. Using an electric patient lift is the ultimate source of help when transporting a patient.
Bariatric Patient Lifts
Mobility Scooters Direct offers several options when transporting someone with obesity. In our catalog you will see many of the best heavy duty patient lifts money can buy. These lifts can be purchased as manual bariatric patient lifts or electric bariatric patient lifts with use of a battery and hand control. Lifting a bariatric patient is impossible to do with one person without any equipment. Simply use two people to guide the sling in to position. One person can support the directional patient while the other lifts the patient from the bed and to a wheelchair with ease.
Stand Up Patient Lifts
Patient lifts are great for people who can bear weight to a good extent. Typically a patient can not walk or is trying to gain muscle mass back in his or her legs. A stand assist lift allows a person who is in a seating position, be lifted to a standing position for very easy and quick transportation. This type of lift is great for those who do not need full assistance by use of a standard full body transportation.
