Commercial Overhead Lifts
For decades nurses, therapists, and aides were told that using good body mechanics was enough to protect them from injury, but cumulative trauma to the spine and musculature is a reoccurring event in the healthcare field. Subsequently, floor lifters were invented to help alleviate the lifting. Although these lifts helped to alleviate the weight, they did not resolve the problems that healthcare staff faced on a daily basis. Hospitals in Europe and the United States are now converting to Ceiling Lifts to reap the benefits.

The integration of various patient lift and repositioning solutions into the nursing home will be a strategic financial decision, and if carefully planned and executed will lead to long-term benefits. Taking aggressive steps to reduce back and musculoskeletal injuries for health care workers in your facility will not only increase efficiency and enhance patient comfort and safety, but significantly reduce the costs associated with time away from work due to injuries.
