A patient lift is a type of assistive device that is used by a caregiver to facilitate safe patient transfers. These devices can be portable/freestanding, which allows them to be easily moved to where they are needed, or overhead/ceiling lifts that are specifically set up in one location (like a bedroom) and can not be moved easily. We also have pool lifts that are specifically designed for use around swimming pools.
While 'Hoyer lifts' is commonly used when referring to all patient lifts, Hoyer is just a well-known brand name that makes these types of devices. In addition to Hoyer, we work with other manufacturers that also sell patient lifts. Drive Medical, Invacare and Molift to name a few.
