A multi-residential living or care facility, like a senior apartment complex or trailer park has elderly and/or disabled residents. Periodically one or another of these residents falls and can not get up witout assistance from others. Most facilities limit lifting by staff to 35 or 50 pounds. Residents that fall are always heavier than the limits imposed by policy leaving the staff no option but to call for emergency services.
The fallen resident/patient is up from the floor in minutes. Staff did not have to lift the resident or call for an emergency services dispatch minimizing non-emergency lift-assist dispatches while expediently lifting the fallen from the floor!
“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.
The HFL-400 is a purpose-built tool that allows facility staff to assist the fallen by rolling the lift to the fallen individual and assisting the resident on to the seat without lifting. The staff or resident can then operate the lift to raise the them from the floor without any manual lifting by the staff.
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 or gurney.
Who is the HFL-400 designed and built for?
Thye HFL-400 is designed for persons up to 400 pounds. This lift is designed to be rugged and support the lifting of large persons in a home and/or business environment. Whether at the senior daycare or activity facility or a senior/disabled residential facility, the HFL-400 will be ready to lift almost anyone from the floor without injury to the fallen or the assistant.
The physically disabled, injured veterans, victims of accidents with lower extremity issues can all be assisted up from the floor without a call to emergency service personnel.
Folks who are challenged with Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, and other muscular and nerve degenerative disease along with stroke survivors, who may be prone to falling with limited strength and the inability to get up can all be assisted up without further injury to either the fallen person or the assistant.
The HFL-400 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-400 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.
