Take The Stress Out of Moving Your Loved Ones
If you’ve recently been thinking about investing in a patient lift, you’ve come to the right place. At Heavenly Wheels Inc., we understand the importance of having the right mobility products for your needs. We carry a wide range of options for you to choose from, including electric and hydraulic lifts. If you’re not sure where to start, we’re here to help. If you’re not familiar with this type of device, we’ll start with some basic information. A patient lift is a motorized device that gently lifts and smoothly transfers a patient from one place to another, like bed to bath or bed to wheelchair. Every lift is equipped with a sling for the patient being transferred.
You’ve likely seen a ceiling lift in hospitals or other medical environments, but they can also be installed in patients’ homes. This device will make it possible for the patient to live comfortably in their own home. Additionally, it helps reduce the strain on caregivers who operate the device. The ceiling lift will take care of all of the heavy lifting and safely transfer the patient from one area to another in the house.
The two main types you’ll have to choose from are fixed and portable lifts. The fixed option is a permanent installation that consists of a track system mounted on the ceiling. A fixed ceiling lift provides superior versatility as it moves in two directions. A portable model comes with a free-standing track system you need to set up. It can also be taken down after each use. This is ideal if you need to transport your device.
