Mobile Patient Lifts

Mobile patient lifts allow users with limited mobility to be comfortably lifted and safely moved to and from just about any position. These sturdy, durable lifts are idea for home use as well as for use in schools, day centers or other professional settings. Mobile lifts are great for going from room to room without the home modifications necessary for other types of mounted patient lift systems.

A mobile patient lift is similar to a Hoyer lift as it rolls on the floor and has long legs that extend around the wheelchair or under the bed. It has a "boom arm" that extends over your head and holds a sling on a spreader bar. The spreader bar is designed to keep the sling comfortably away from your face and head. These types of lifts mobile are operated either with a hydraulic lift or a battery powered lift. Our accessibility experts highly recommend the battery power electric lift mechanism as it is easier to operate than the hydraulic lift.

Mobile patient transfer lifts are ideal for a bathroom, bedroom, or any other room with a hardwood or solid floor. The one challenge is that these types of lifts don't operate well in a smaller rooms as it is usually 4 feet or more long. In those cases, other types of transfer lifts or solutions may be options to consider, such as a ceiling lift.
