Sara (Standing and Raising Aides)
Standing and raising aids enable patients/residents to be raised up from a bed, chair, toilet or wheelchair for transferral or transportation. Promoting mobility and early mobilization, they are ideal for residents/patients that are having difficulty getting up into a standing position.
Passive Lifts (floor and ceiling mounted)
Easy to understand, simple to operate and providing maximum patient/resident comfort. Arjo’s lifts are firmly established as the most appropriate ergonomic choice for today’s professional nurses and caregivers.
From the busiest nursing home to the smallest home or apartment, caregivers are constantly faced with the risk of crippling back pain and injury due to the manual transferring and handling of patients/residents. With the right mechanical aids in place, caregiver safety can be improved and musculoskeletal injury-related costs can be reduced.
Many healthcare professionals were taught that proper body mechanics can eliminate the risk of injury when lifting patients. But newer research shows us that the only safe way to reduce injury to thousands of caregivers is by using a ceiling lift. That said, how can institutions ensure compliance for use of ceiling lifts?
