Manually lifting patients can be dangerous and believe it or not, it can be done incorrectly. By doing that, you can cause serious harm to the patient, leaving them in a bad position. Some patients can not support their own body weight and require support. There are several patient lifts available for different situations. There are power patient lifts, pool lifts, bathtub lifts, and even stand assist lifts. These lifts are designed to have the safety of the patient in mind by minimizing back strain and neck strain, the two most sensitive parts of the body.
The slings on the equipment comfortably transport the patient to their destination slowly without compromising on the back or neck. These lifts are largely used in hospitals and care facilities, but they are also available for use in home.
