Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/30/2015 -- Medical lifting slings are devices and support systems, which enable transfer of patients who cannot maintain balance independently. Thus, these devices are frequently used by trauma patients, elderly, and individuals with disorders affecting locomotion and posture. Patients, disabled and elderly people face mobility and transfer problems in performing their day-to-day tasks and their caregivers are under risk during patient transfers. One of the forms of patient lifts are Bathtub lifts which allow the user to easily move in and out of the tub with ease and comfort. Sit-to-stand varieties are useful for who have lost muscular control to stand on their feet from a bed or wheelchair. Other types if patient lifts include sling lift, which allows heavy weight or obese patients to be transferred without causing stress to the user or caregiver extending support. However, they suffer from limitation, in that sling lift tends to bend and compress the body of the patient during the transfer process. Overhead or ceiling lift can be attached to the ceiling of the room.
