Manually lifting patients can be dangerous. When done incorrectly, the patient can be seriously harmed or injured.
Patient lifts help to transfer the person safely, minimizing back strain and neck strain, the two most sensitive parts of the body. Patients who cannot support their own body weight and require support would benefit greatly from using a patient lift.
The slings on the equipment comfortably transport the patient to their destination slowly without compromising on the back or neck. These transfer lifts are largely used in hospitals and care facilities, but they are also available for use inside the home.
