   What Is Patient Lift?

   Patient lift is a medical instrument which can help us move the patients from place to place, it is commonly used in both the home and in medical establishment. With the development of the technology, there are various patient lifts in the market. Each of them has different functions,and suitable for different scenarios.

   How to choose a patient lift?

   Manual or Electric

   Manual patient lift relies on a hydraulic pump arm that must be manually pumped to raise the patient and help the user transfer from one physical setting to another, and they are usually much cheaper. But if using this kind of patient lift, the the caregiver must be in good physical condition.

   Electric patient lifts are powered by battery or plug into an electrical outlet. Compared with manual patient lifts, they are more expensive, but much easy to operate. For caregiver and patient, this would be a safer choice.
