The Advantage of Leverage
The Lift uses the mechanical advantage of 8:1 leverage in the assisted mode to make lifting easy for the nurse or home caregiver. With the Lift in the unassisted mode, the patient has the advantage of being able to use their arms to transfer weight to the Lift thereby using less effort to lift and lower themselves as they place a portion of their weight on Gimme a Lift®.
The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organization’s (JCAHO) pain management policy assesses hospital patient’s pain on a scale from 1-10, with 10 being the worst. When using the Lift, ambulatory patients stated that their suture site pain level was greatly reduced from a high of 8 or 9 to a low of 2 or 3. Gimme a Lift® has been awarded U.S. and a Canadian Patents for being unique and useful. Always read the complete instructions before use.
