A patient lift in the bedroom can be a crucial part of the accessibility solutions. A patient lift is a device used to help a caregiver move a patient–from a bed to a wheelchair, from the bed to other household areas, or from a bed to a bathroom to access a bathtub, shower and toilet. The lift prevents injury to the caregiver or patient while movement takes place.
Next Day Access offers two options for patient lifts. The first is a free-standing lift designed to go over a bed or in a bathroom. The second is a ceiling lift attached to the ceiling of the home to provide additional flexibility in moving the patient from the bed to different areas of the room or home.
Each option has distinct advantages. The benefits of a fixed-lift system include a higher lift capacity, an easy-to-use battery charger, proven longevity and an unobtrusive, easy-to-use carry bar. The benefits of a fixed ceiling lift include a powerful motor unit, which resides in the track system and functions as a permanent transfer and lifting solution. The fixed ceiling track system can be used in a single room or be installed to transfer a patient among different rooms.
Patient lifts can be designed and installed in simple configurations or for complex situations that help caregivers and patients achieve maximum flexibility.
