The purpose of a patient lift is to enable one person to lift and move a patient safely with as little physical effort as possible.
This type of patient lift facilitates bed transfers, wheelchair transfers, toilet transfers, automobile transfers, and floor transfers. The device also aids in bath transfer and swimming pool transfers with appropriate accessory equipment.
LIFTING A PATIENT FROM A BED
When returning a patient to the bed, simply reverse the procedure.
If the patient is to be transported in the lift, turn him until he is facing the mast as previously described. Slowly and carefully open the hydraulic release valve, which will then lower the patient until his feet rest on or over the base of the lift and straddle the mast. This lowers the center of gravity making the lift easier to push and providing greater stability. It also reduces pendulum action and makes the patient feel more secure. Push the lift with the steering handles
