Nurses face many challenges every day. Patient hoists are often required to lift and move. For example, move the patient from a chair to the bed, bathtub, or toilet. Choosing a system designed with nurses and patients in mind is critical.
There are several lifting systems on the market and disable equipment providers around the world are developing new lifts that make lifting and moving patients easier.
Lifting and transfer products are divided into 3 main types. Ceiling lifts (sometimes called ceiling lifts), floor lifts (elevators), and wall lifts (elevators).
There are two types of hoists, fixed loft track and portable track. The ceiling lift consists of a piece of rail that is firmly attached to the ceiling. Rails, if available, can be attached to wooden beams or chemically mounted to a concrete ceiling. If for some reason the ceiling cannot be used, the track may be attached to the wall.
With a fixed ceiling lift, the load is less because no manual lift is required. The lifting mechanism does not require any floor space, thus avoiding storage problems and providing a high lifting height from the floor. This is a universal option that you can use to lift, move, weigh the user, or help the user to use the toilet.
Full access to rooms and other rooms, easily accessible via door title and only 1 person (supervisor) is required for the job. Depending on the skill of the user, self-operation is also possible, and the elevator can be powered by electricity or batteries.
