Difference between various Patient Lifts
Mechanical Patient Lifts or Hoyer Lifts
Mechanical lifts are patient lifts that utilize a crank mechanism to safely lift and lower patients. Unlike powered lifts, manual lifts do not rely on batteries or electricity. These lifts are designed with efficient gearing mechanisms that require minimal energy, but they do require manual cranking. Here are a few examples of manual lifts available in the market:
- Hoyer Advance Professional Manual (Model: HOYADVANCEH) – This lift has a capacity of 341 pounds.
- Medline Manual (Model: MDS88200D) – This lift has a capacity of 400 pounds.
Electric Patient Lifts or Hoyer Lifts
Electric lifts, also known as powered lifts, can be categorized as either electric or battery-operated. They are equipped with an electric motor that can be either DC/battery operated or AC operated. Battery-powered lifts can be recharged using an AC outlet. While some of these lifts are larger in size, there are also smaller ones available that offer convenient portability between different rooms.
Here are a couple of examples of electric lifts:
- Hoyer Advance Professional Electric (Model: HOYADVANCEE) – It has a weight capacity of 341 pounds.
- Drive Medical Electric (Model: 13240) – This lift can support a weight capacity of 450 pounds.
Sit to Stand Patient Lifts
Sit-to-Stand Lifts, also known as “Stand-Up lifts,” are designed to assist patients in transitioning from a seated to a standing position. These lifts utilize straps or belts to facilitate the movement. The patient relies on their own strength to pull themselves up into the desired position. One of the advantages of these lifts is their narrow width, allowing easy passage through narrow doorways. Additionally, they are typically smaller and lighter compared to standard lifts.
Here are a few examples of Sit-to-Stand Lifts:
- Joerns Hoyer Professional Journey, JOURNEY, with a maximum weight capacity of 341 pounds.
- Span America Sit to Stand, F500S, with a maximum weight capacity of 500 pounds.
- Invacare Get-U-Up, GHS350, with a maximum weight capacity of 350 pounds.
Heavy Duty or Bariatric Patient or Hoyer Lifts
Heavy Duty Lifts, also referred to as bariatric lifts, are specifically designed to cater to individuals weighing over 500 pounds. These lifts are built using durable heavy gauge steel and are made extra wide to accommodate larger individuals comfortably. Additionally, the casters used in these lifts are larger and stronger to provide adequate support for heavier loads. Some of these lifts are also foldable, allowing for convenient storage when not in use. Moreover, they come equipped with a 6-point cradle, which enhances stability during lifting operations. Here are a few examples of Heavy Duty Lifts available in the market:
- Drive Medical Heavy Duty Bariatric, model number 13244, with a weight capacity of 600 pounds.
- Medline Powered Base 700, model number JBS802, with a weight capacity of 700 pounds.
