At-home patient lifts can help homecare nurses or caretakers safely move patients from one area to another. These lifts also allow people with mobility problems to move themselves from place to place within the home. If you or a loved one has issues with mobility, a patient lift or a home elevator is an invaluable tool. Here are a few uses for residential patient lifts:
1. Wall Lifts
Wall lifts are safely secured to a wall for use. They are commonly used by the bed or in the bathroom. In the bedroom, a wall lift allows patients to get in and out of bed. In the bathroom, wall lifts help patients to access bathtubs without the danger of slipping or falling.
2. Mobile Lifts
Mobile lifts are freestanding patient lifts that can be wheeled from place to place. With the aid of a care worker, these lifts allow patients to be moved from one room to another without the need for a wheelchair transfer. They also are useful in multi-story homes equipped with a home elevator so that a patient can be transported in and out of the elevator in their lift.
3. Pool Lifts
For patients with pools, a pool lift will ensure safety getting in and out of the pool. These residential patient lifts are designed to allow people to enjoy a relaxing day in the pool without worry.
