Mobility is freedom the young and healthy often take for granted. Yet, for the elderly or the disabled, mobility can be a daily, frustrating problem. Simple tasks like moving to a chair or scooter, going to the bathroom, getting into the shower or even changing clothes can be an insurmountable challenge. Even with caregiver help, it can be a chore.
Gaining Personal Freedom
Transfer lifts are an in-home track system which allows a person to be able to be lifted out from one area (i.e. their bed) into the transfer device which then can take the person to any room connected by the track. This system allows for personal mobility at a level not previously possible. When combined with home modifications such as an accessible bathroom, tasks like taking a shower may be done without the aid of a caregiver or family member, for some individuals.
While transfer lifts can give freedom to certain people, it also helps caregivers as well. The transfer lift can be used to raise the person upright so clothes can be taken on or off easily. This position can even help prevent injuries during transfers, as the transfer lift system supports the body without stressing it. The patient transfer lift safely moves you from the bed to the shower, offering the in-home accessibility you need.
