Mom and Dad live together and one of them starts to fall and is unable to get up on their own. As they age together Mom and Dad are not able to pick each other up. When one of them falls they have to get help from outside of the home. Family, neighbors, friends and emergency services aka the fire department have to be called for assistance. Sometime later, help arrives to pick the fallen person up from the floor. Many times the fallen are injured more by lifting them than from the actual fall. More often than not, more than one strong person is required to get the fallen up. This process can take a long time leaving the fallen uncomfortably stuck.
Individuals living at home alone or “aging in place” have few good options when they have fallen and need help getting up. Friends, relatives, and neighbors can become overburdened with requests and a call to emergency services can result in a loss of privacy and personal dignity. It is also common for helpers to become injured while assisting the fallen individual.
“The Human Floor Lift” or HFL was designed to lift a person safely from the floor without causing injury to a caregiver or the person needing help.
With the HFL, after a fall, mom, dad or a helper rolls the IndeeLift directly over to whoever has fallen, who then scoots onto the seat. Either party activates the lift and a minute later whoever was on the floor is now sitting comfortably, able to take their time recovering from the fall before attempting to stand or transfer to a wheel chair.
Independence, privacy and dignity are maintained along without having to bother anyone else with such a personal issue! The IndeeLift HFL turns what is often a harrowing, drawn-out and horribly uncomfortable experience into a private easily-recoverable non-event!
Who is the HFL designed and built for?
Aging folks whether alone or as couples with a desire to stay in the comfort of wherever they call home, who are mobile but have difficulty getting up after a fall.
The physically disabled, injured veterans, victims of accidents with lower extremity issues.
Those challenged with Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, and other muscular and nerve degenerative disease who may be prone to falling with limited strength and the inability to get up.
Stroke survivors and their caregivers,
The HFL-300 is designed to be used in homes, assisted living, long term care and residential facilities where people are generally mobile but want to be independent and able to get up after a fall without asking for help from others or calling for emergency services.
How Does the Lift Work?
- An assistant rolls the HFL to the fall site.
- The fallen scoots onto the seat.
- Either party activates the lift, raising them from the floor.
- A moment later the individual is lifted to a height from which he or she can catch their breath before moving off the HFL to a standing position, wheelchair, or other surface.
