Patient Lifting

Patient lifting equipment enable nursing staff or carers to lift and move patients with the minimal risk of injury to themselves or the patient. In most cases using patient lifting equipment can reduce the number of people needed to move a patient from 5 or 6 to only 2 staff.

The Airpal patient lifting system was invented in the USA 30 years ago and is used in hospitals to assist staff to move patients from one bed to another. The air powered lifting system is especially useful when moving bariatric patients and is gentler for the patient than any other lateral transfer method.

Padded handling slings are used by one or more carers to lift a patient from sitting to standing up. The sling is wrapped around the patient’s body, then carers use the handles on the sling to pull the patient up onto their feet. The handling slings are also used to move patients’ legs across a bed carefully and comfortably.
