Depending on the co-operation from the patient, one nurse uses the Handi-Lift, but it is highly recommended that two nurses assist in the transfer.
This transfer sling is made from very strong material, but is very light and comfortable to use, both for the nursing staff and patients.
The large padded handles are comfortable for the nurse’s hands and in use, the sling will mould to the patient’s body for their comfort.
A big advantage of the Pelican Handi-Lift is that it can be rolled up and put in a pocket, so it is always handy when needed to transfer a patient.
Quite often, transfer aids are left in another room and the staff have not got the time to go searching for them and consequently they are not used.
Help your staff by giving them their own personal Handi-Lift.
The Pelican Handi-Lift is economically priced and if cross-infection is likely, the cost is reasonable enough for each patient to have their own personal Handi-Lift.
The large & medium sizes are the most popular. Different sizes can be made if required. Measurements are taken on length of Sling excluding handles.
The Handi-Turn, another Pelican product, is a revolving transfer disk that is helpful and is used in conjunction with the Handi-Lift when turning patients.
Alternative products are the Pelican Handi-Lift/Walk Belt and the Pelican Soft Transfer Belt.
