In the assisted mode, a nurse or caregiver uses the patient Lift to help move an individual from a sitting to a standing or from a lying back to a sitting up position. The nurse grips the Palm Grip located at the top of the device to help keep the Lift steady. The patient then grasps the comfortable Grips on the shaft while stepping on the unique Anchor Pad with only one-foot at the bottom of the device. The nurse, while keeping her back erect gently pulls back on the Palm Grip to help the patient rise. The Anchor Pad remains stable on any dry floor surface as the reinforced shaft pivots toward the nurse. If the patient has weak hands or arms, use the specially designed adjustable Back Strap.
You may also use our patient Lift by yourself (unassisted) to standup, sit down, lay back, or sit up by using similar techniques, as above, but without a nurse or caregiver to assist. Each Gimme a Lift has its own serial number and comes with easy to use instructions. See more by clicking the How To Use tab on top of this page or play the video under the above picture. Gimme a Lift is featured in the Machine Design magazine and at Family Village.
