Benefits with overhead lifts
The overhead lift is the best possible mobility aid for moving a patient in a nursing environment. Being mounted in the ceiling, the lift allows for the floor space to remain uncluttered. Thus, the caregivers may move around more freely, safely and speedily.
The overhead lift can be installed in any environment and will reach every position in the room – without furniture posing a hindrance. Having all needed prerequisites for heavy lifts at hand saves lots of time, allowing for more – and more cost-efficient – caregiving.
Choosing the right material of a sling
Choosing the right material is important when choosing a sling since the different materials have unique characteristics that are suitable to different lifting situations. Often, you want a material that is robust and has low friction which makes the sling easy to apply and remove.
When you want to use the sling in connection with bath and shower you need to have a net material that dries quickly and is easy to keep clean.
If you want the opportunity to leave the sling in a wheelchair or bed after the lift is done you need a breathable material and a sling without any reinforcements, handles or paddings.
