Electric Patient Lifts
Patient lifts are ideal for transferring a disabled person between their bed and a wheelchair or electric scooter. The major manufacturers of patient lifts are Hoyer and Invacare. Some issues you should consider when purchasing a patient lift:
Ceiling-mounted patient lifts are installed with one or more tracks. A typical installation consists of a track that extends beyond your bed for setup of a wheelchair and bedside commode. Multi-directional tracks are used if you need to be lifted in different locations of the room. Multiple tracks are used on different floors of your home and have removable motors.
