People fall down and they cannot get up. Professional health care providers are challenged with the physical limitations of their elderly and disabled patients. Health care workers experience more than three times the number of debilitating back and spinal injuries than the national average when compared to all other work environments. Many health care workers careers have been ended abruptly by back and spinal injury primarily related to lifting patients in their care. Lift related patient and caregiver injury and the related impacts to the work/care environment are a major challenge for professional health care providers!
“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, a care provider rolls the IndeeLift directly to the location of the fall. The fallen then scoots onto the seat. The provider activates the lift and less than a minute later the fallen person is now sitting comfortably, able to take their time recovering from the fall before getting up and walking away or transferring to a wheel chair when appropriate.
The IndeeLift HFL turns what is often a harrowing and difficult experience for the patient and care giver into a safe easily-recoverable nonevent!
Who is the HFL-550-P designed and built for?
The HFL is designed to be the “People Picker Upper”! Whether age, disability, disease, or accident has left one unable to get up from the floor, IndeeLift is the answer to getting up while maintaining safety and dignity of one who has fallen and the care giver. The physically disabled, injured veterans, victims of accidents, and victims of many muscular debilitating diseases who are prone to falling with limited strength and the inability to get up now have a safe effective answer to getting up without getting injured further.
The HFL-550-P is designed to be used in acute hospitals, skilled nursing, assisted living and long term care/retirement facilities.
How Does the Lift Work?
- A caregiver rolls the HFL-550 to the location of the fall.
- The fallen scoots onto the seat.
- The caregiver activates the lift, raising the patient from the floor.
- In less than one minute, the individual is lifted to a height from which they can comfortable stand or be transferred to a wheelchair or other surface.
The HFL is powered by a linear actuator system meeting the standards required for source with components meeting acceptable standards for hospital and care facility deployment.
The HFL is designed and engineered to safely lift a person of up to 550 lbs. from the floor to a seated position up to 21 inches from the floor as defined in the Americans with Disability Act specifications for accessible seating.
Allows for easy transfer to a chair, bed or wheelchair.
