Patient Lifts / Hoyer Lifts

Posted on: August 16th, 2011 in Patient Lifts by medicaldepartmentstore |

A Patient lift, or Hoyer lift, is a mechanism that uses hydraulic power or battery power for transferring a patient from a place to another. This product is used in hospitals as well as patients’ homes.  Caregivers rely on patient lifts to assist in moving patients who are incapable or severely limited in movement and those that are a bit heavy to be lifted.

Based from price difference, a manually-operated Patient lift gives more control for the user through its hydraulic cylinder and hand-pumps for control. The Battery Patient lifts are convenient to operate through button controls and use of battery packs for power source.  The Battery Patient Lift is favored use for most caregivers because of the comfort and ease of use it offers.

For patients that only need support for rehabilitation and are capable of holding up some weight, there is a Sit to Stand-up lift, a product that can help a client up from the sitting position.  With Bariatric patients or those who are too heavy to be lifted manually, there is the Heavy-duty Patient lift which can hold a weight of up to 1000 lbs.

All Hoyer lifts/ Patient Lift require a Patient lift sling to cradle and lift the patient.

The Medical Department Store carries a wide variety of Patient Lifts to and Patient Slings to meet your patient’s needs.
