Manual patient lifts are cost-effective lifts which make patient transfers safer and easier for both the patient and the caregiver. Manual lifts tend to weigh less than powered lifts, and they're often easy to transport. These lifts are versatile and affordable, making them appealing options for many home and professional care settings.
Manual lifts include a hydraulic mechanism which allows the caregiver to power the lift by using a pump lever. The hydraulic action reduces the physical exertion required of the caregiver, letting them smoothly perform the patient transfer.
Because manual lifts do not require battery power, they are often slimmer than powered lifts and weigh less. When using a manual lift, you don't have to worry about making sure that the battery is charged in order to operate the lift.
Since manual lifts are without power, the base itself must be manually operated by the caregiver. Some lifts come with a foot spreading mechanism so that the caregiver can operate the base with one foot, rather than having to bend down and take their eyes off of the patient.
You will notice that manual lifts feature different handle designs to better help the caregiver steer and maneuver the lift. Some lifts feature handles with an ergonomic design to encourage the caregiver to naturally practice proper body mechanics during the transfer.
Manual lifts offer a distinctive financial advantage over powered lifts. Manual lifts tend to be more affordable than powered lifts, making them a practical choice for home care settings or for offices on a budget.
Patient transfers can potentially result in injury to both the patient and the caregiver. Manual lifts are a versatile way to make patient lifts safer while requiring less physical performance on the part of the caregiver.
