Bath, Pool & Spa Lifts
Hi, my name is Elaine Latham and I am a Patient Lift Specialist. As a
caregiver, nurse, user, . . .How do you know what bath, pool, spa,
toilet, manual, hydraulic, electric, bariatric heavy duty hoyer or
patient lift to purchase; and how do you pick the correct type and size
sling; how do you pick the correct base style with adequate clearance;
how do you pick the right weight capabilities?
To pick the correct patient lift, we need to discuss what the lift will
be used for; Where will the lift be; How often will the lift be used;
Who will use the lift or be in the lift . . . We need to know when
picking out a sling: The height and weight of the person; What movement
they can control; What needs are being met; The individuals condition;
Is it needed for toileting or bathing; Will the patient be in the sling
for a long period of time.
You may be lifting a patient from the bed to a wheelchair or need a lift
that is small and comfortable for "Sit to Stand-up Training.
You may need a Bariatric Heavy Duty model - our specialty!
We have very many small, easy and comfortable lifters for transfers and
stand-up training. Many lifts will meet the demand for sit-to-sit
transfers for patients that have trouble standing, but are able to
participate to some extent in the lift. Easy to maneuver and compact
-just as practical at home or in an institutional care situation.
