Hoyer Lifts, better known as Patient Lifts, or sling lifts are all descriptions of the same type of machine or device which is designed to assist health care professionals in hospitals, nursing homes, or other clinical settings as well as care providers in the home, by lifting patients electrically or hydraulically who are unable to stand or transfer themselves from bed to a wheelchair for example.
Utilizing a patient lift reduces strain on health care professionals and home care providers who work with patients with limited or no mobility. Manually lifting a patient in and out of bed or from a chair or off of the toilet puts the care provider at risk of injury. Patient sling lifts can be portable so that they can be used virtually anywhere or they can be attached to the ceiling in places where lifting patients occurs frequently.
ProHealthcareProducts.com offers a variety of patient lifts made by Hoyer, Joerns, Invacare, Drive Medical and others.
