More Information

  • Transfer from Bed:
    - If a patient needs support and is in a hospital bed, raise side rails and have patient hold onto rails.
    - Raise the level of the bed to the highest position before moving the patient onto the sling.
    Note: This will reduce strain on the caregivers lower back. Also, when the patient is ready to be lifted, lower the side rails and the level of the bed, decreasing the distance you have to elevate the patient.
    - Put the folded sling behind patients back. Roll patient onto the back.
    - Pull the leg loops forward and under the thighs.
    - Cross the loops.
    - Roll the base of the patient lift as far under the bed as possible, placing the cradle over the patient.
    - Take caution not to lower the frame onto the patient.
    - Before lifting patient be sure the lifter arm is centered over the patient. Remeber, when lifting patient, the parking brake should NOT be used.
    - When both sides of the sling are attached to their respective side of the cradle, raise the patient slowly.
    - If the patient is in a hospital bed, it will help to raise the head of bed. Repositioning of the patient may be needed to ensure that a safe sitting position is attained as the patient is raised. 5. Raise patient until buttocks are just above the mattress. The self-leveling cradle will bring the patient into sitting position.
    - Hold steering handles and move lifter away from the bed. Move the patient into position over the seat of a locked wheelchair.
