Patient lifts are specially made to lift and transfer patients from one place to another. Patient lifts can be operated using a power source or manually. The power lifts require a rechargeable battery, while the manual lifts are operated using hydraulics.
Manual patient lift protects the patient from physical difficulty during movement. they are operated by hands using a handle. this type of patient lifts uses a crank to lift the patient; when the caregiver cranks the handle, the hydraulic powers the pumps to lift and lower the patient safely.
Power lifts provide powerful and smooth maneuverability to individuals with restricted mobility. They use an electric motor which is operated on either battery or AC/DC power.
Hydraulic Patient Lifts may be manual or power operated. They use hydraulic fluid to move the lift. This type of patient lift has become a standard in the market.
Sit-to-Stand lifts are designed for patients who have difficulty standing up on their own from a seated position. They are also referred to as “Stand-Up lifts” as the individual uses their own strength to lift themselves up to a standing position.
This type of lift is designed to accommodate individuals weighing more than 500 pounds. They make transfers of bariatric users smooth, and that’s why also known as Bariatric Lifts. Their broad lift range allows access to a variety of surfaces, while low-friction casters make rolling the lift easier.
They are affordable, manually operated lifts designed for residential use. They are ideal for both in and above ground pools. They are portable and easily relocated to another dock or pool area.
Patient lift slings are an essential part of a patient lift and hook up to the lift by a metal chain, adjustable strap, or reinforced fabric loops. The sling is placed under the patient to assist them to be lifted and transferred safely and smoothly from a bed, wheelchair, shower, or commode.

Floor lifts or total lifts are used when patients cannot bear weight on their legs and can provide minimal assistance during the lift and transfer (more dependent). These lifts are used to transfer a patient from one room to another. Stand assist lifts are used for pivot transfers from a bed to chair or commode and vice versa. Stand assist lifts are recommended for patients who can bear weight on at least one leg and have some upper body strength (less dependent).
Using a 6-point spreader bar attachments is advisable because 6 connecting points to the spreader bar is safer than traditional 2 or 4 point hookups. In addition to the 6 point system the patient girth is spread over a wider area ultimately allowing for a much more comfortable lifting experience.
Total body lifts are used to transfer patients/residents from a bed to a wheelchair, toilet chair, bathtub, commode, etc. or vice versa. A total body lift is typically used with patients who cannot bear weight, have physical limitations (quadriplegia, amputee), or are very heavy and cannot be safely transferred manually by staff. A portable total lift supports the entire weight of the resident with a sling attached to a stand on wheels that can be freely moved or positioned to allow a transfer to a different surface.
Total body lifts can be used with bariatric patients, or for those who cannot bear weight on their legs e.g. quadraplegics, amputees or people who do not possess physical strength due to a disease.
Patient lifts are very versatile as they allow for patients to be transferred between many surfaces such as beds, wheelchairs, commodes, bath tubs or other places throughout home or healthcare facility. They use electric or hydraulic energy to safety lift patients with limited mobility or the ability to transfer on their own and relocate them while keeping them comfortable.
Improper use of patient lifts can result in injury. Always consult the user manual and/or any documentation that comes with your patient lift as well as lift sling, and if you have questions or concerns, consult your doctor/caregiver or supplier of the lift.
