LiftVest for the Healthcare Provider

Healthcare workers, nurses, aides and orderlies, are perennially among the top 10 in occupations at risk for musculoskeletal disorders.

According to the ANA's Handle With Care fact sheet, over 50% of nurses complain of chronic back pain and almost 40% miss work because of it. Patient handling tasks are generally recognized as the primary cause for these injuries. LiftVest reduces the risks involved in many of these tasks:

Lateral Transfers
Transfers involving sitting positions
Repositioning
Floor
Ambulation

Over 64% of healthcare facilities have instituted a safe patient handling program. Many of these follow guidelines set out by the ANA and OSHA. LiftVest can become an integral part of your SPH program:

Convenient – Mechanical lifts are large and can not maneuver into tight spaces.
Simple – Numerous handles allow lifting from different angles.
Safe – Prevents back injuries by promoting better lifting techniques.
Secure – Webbing harness and handles reduce the risk of dropping patients and
                  prevent slipping associated with gait belts.
Comfortable – Distributes pressure evenly over the whole torso preventing
                           bruising and shoulder injuries.
Quick – Ready to use in seconds, easy to deploy in emergencies.
