A safe transfer is essential for caretaker and caregiver

Mobile lifters

A safe transfer is essential for both caretaker and caregiver

A safe transfer? Use a lifter

When a person can not stand on its own feet, lifting by hand is irresponsible both for caretaker and caregiver. Also someone who is able to stand on his own feet, but can’t get up independently, needs to be helped by others. Lifters are tools to ensure a safe transfer in both situations.

Some examples in our program:

Scaleo Poweo 130

AKS Clino II

AKS Mini Foldy

AKS mini Dualo

AKS Torneo II

Active – very compact – comfortable

Passive lifters

When do you chose a  passive hoist?

For people that

  • can’t stand on their feet or just very limited
  • are not able to get up without help or to sit down again
  • are not able to independently, not even with the use of a sliding board or swiveling monkey pole, slide over from wheelchair to bed or toilet and back
  • outweigh 25kg
  • have very little energy

When do you use an active hoist?

For people that

  • have a limited stand-function
  • are not able to get up without help or to sit down again
  • are not able to independently, not even with the use of a sliding board or swiveling monkey pole, slide over from wheelchair to bed or toilet and back
  • outweigh 25 kg

The person must have a stable hull (be able to sit a little), at least be able to support one leg and have no problems with the shoulder joint (pain, impending dislocation, etc.), understand what is expected of him / her and act that way . If not a passive hoist will have to be chosen.

STIGAH certified

We Connect is a STIGAH certified company that takes care of the periodical inspections of your lifter(s). This is essential to guarantee the safety of the transfers. A human error can not be avoided, but with care and precision, we can ensure that the tools we are using are safe.

A periodic inspection is mandatory for each nursery home. In homecare, there is no mandatory inspection, but it is as important for lifters at home to be checked annually. However, you are responsible for that yourself.
