Need more access to the bedroom or when moving from the bedroom to other areas of the home? If so, a patient lift might be the answer. A patient lift was created to be used by a caregiver when a patient needs to move between rooms or spaces: from a wheelchair to a bed or to a bathroom to use a shower, bathtub, and toilet. Transitioning a patient between the bed and other parts of the home requires bending and using the muscles of the back and other parts of the body. A patient lift ensures that neither caregiver nor patient is injured while the patient is being moved.
Next Day Access in San Antonio offers options for two patient lifts. The first one is a free-standing lift for placement over a bed or in a bathroom. The second one is a ceiling lift affixed to your home’s ceiling. The latter gives the caregiver more flexibility when maneuvering transitioning the patient through your residence. A fixed ceiling lift works as a permanent transfer and lifting solution because of the track system’s motor. It can be employed in one room, or used to transition a patient among rooms or places in the residence.
The benefits of a fixed-lift system include an easy to use and well-designed carry bar, a greater lift capacity, a battery charger, and durability.
Patient lifts are offered in basic configurations or we can design them to help in more complicated situations. They offer the maximum available flexibility for the patient and caregiver.
