Patient Restraints & Transfer Equipment for Moving Patients
Quality patient restraints and transfer equipment is essential for moving patients safely from one destination to another. Installing this equipment in your patient care facility greatly reduces the chances of accidental patient injury. This equipment reduces physical wear and tear on staff who must lift and wheel patients on a daily basis.
Patient Restraints and Transfer Equipment for Medical Offices
Patients are constantly streaming in and out of your medical office or clinic, and this heavy volume of patient interaction comes with the occasional physical challenge. While most patients are capable of walking on their own, your staff must sometimes help patients that cannot get around easily. That's why it's a good idea to invest in equipment such as hydraulic lifts and lift slings. Hydraulic patient lifts are the best way to help frail patients smoothly transfer from wheelchair to examination table. For optimal results, select a lift capable of handling body weights up to 600 pounds. To operate the lift properly, choose full body lift slings suitable for all patient needs. We carry lift slings with and without a cutout section. Slings are made of lightweight medical grade mesh material that allows staff to maneuver patients into the sling easily. Patient slings include loops that effortlessly slip over pointed hooks for a snug fit. When staff members are ready to move a patient, they manually operate the lift to go up or down. Mechanical lifting is comfortable for patients and staff members.
Patient Restraints and Transfer Equipment for Nursing Homes
Nursing home facilities have the daunting task of taking care of patients with challenging physical needs. Patients who need constant assistance to get in and out of bed depend on the stamina of your facility's dedicated staff members. Manually lifting patients from a prone position into a standing position can lead to back strain and repetitive motion injuries for staff. Avoid losing employees to avoidable injuries by investing in patient restraints. Mechanical patient lifts are easy to operate and keep your staff from sustaining career-altering injuries. Nursing home patients who have difficulty walking up stairs often need assistance. One stumble can bring a host of legal problems. A good way to protect your facility is to eliminate the stair problem with ramps. Browse our selection of industrial strength ramps in various sizes. Our large ramps easily accommodate walkers and wheelchairs. Buy small ramps that help residents access interior rooms.
Patient Restraints and Transfer Equipment for Safe Mobile Transport
Transporting patients to and from medical facilities, nursing homes and residential buildings is a huge responsibility for mobile transportation companies. The tricky part isn't getting fragile patients in and out of vehicles; it's getting them safely inside buildings. When ramps are missing, drivers are sometimes forced to leave patients stranded outside buildings, or they must find another person to give assistance. Avoid these time-wasting scenarios by equipping your mobile medical vehicles with portable ramps. Check out our selection of lightweight ramps that are strong enough to handle wheelchairs.
