For caregivers, the foremost advantage in minimizing the manual lifting is the reducing of heavy strain on the body. One third of all reported occupational injuries in health care result from heavy lifting, and 7 out of 10 caregivers consider their work to be heavy.
Our overhead lifts contribute to a better work environment, resulting in fewer people being absent for sick leave. This means lower staffing costs and a higher level of service for patients, which, in the long term, may contribute to savings in public or payer finances. Other advantages for staff and relatives include safe lifting, smooth transfers and ease of operation.
