A patient lift in a bedroom can be a significant accessibility provider. A patient lift is medical equipment that aids a caregiver in moving a patient with disabilities– from a bed to a wheelchair, from a bed to a bathroom to access a bathtub, shower and toilet, or from the bed to other household areas. The lift is designed so that neither caregiver nor patient is hurt in moving.
Next Day Access in Pittsburgh has two types of patient lifts. The first is a free-standing one to be set over a bed or in a bathroom. The second is a ceiling lift fixed to your house’s ceiling to provide extra flexibility when moving the individual with disabilities from the bed to various areas of the home.
Each option has its own advantages. The benefits of a fixed-lift system include a higher lift capacity, an easy-to-use battery charger, durability and an unobtrusive, easy-to-use carry bar. The benefits of a fixed ceiling lift are a powerful motor unit that is part of the track system and functions as a permanent transfer and lifting solution. The fixed ceiling track system can be used in one area or be used when transitioning a patient from room to room.
The design and placement of patient lifts is available in simple configurations or for complex situations that help patients and caregivers achieve the most flexibility.
