Patient Lifting & Transfer

A large part of patient handling involves the transfer of a patient from one point to another, whether for toileting, bathing or other daily activities, often using a patient lifting device such as a hoist. Felgains offer a range of mobile and ceiling track hoists that provide safe patient transfers, with an ergonomic working environment for the carer which reduces manual handling and provides a comfortable experience for the user which promotes independence.

Emergency lifting to recover a person who has fallen is another significant element of moving and handling, with an estimated 3.4 million people over the age of 65 suffering from a fall every year. The Raizer emergency lifting chair provides a more stable and dignified way to lift a person off the floor than inflatable lifting cushions and can be simply operated by one person, achieving single-handed care.
