Patient lifts and transfer aids are medical devices used to help lift or transfer patients with limited mobility, such as from a wheelchair to a bed. Too often, manual patient transfers can result in caregiver back injuries.
From simple pivoting aids to full electric lifting, a person’s weight-bearing ability should be considered first.
Conval-Aid offers a wide range of products designed to help families and individuals maintain independence, adapt to change, or make everyday life easier.
Below are some lift options we have, so you can choose the best patient lift for home use and make your patient lift easy and safe. We have all types of home patient lifts, including hydraulic power lifts, manual lifts, bariatric lifts, floor lifts, and many other kinds of assistive devices.
As mentioned, the weight-bearing ability will determine the type of aid required.
