Power Patient Lifts
A battery powered, or electric, Hoyer patient lift is operated using a hand control which is powered by a rechargeable battery. Additional features may include a base that is also operated using the hand control, a separate battery charger and multiple battery packs. A power or electric patient lift is ideal in clinical or rehabilitation settings when the lift is used several times per day. Patient lifts, also commonly called Hoyer lifts, are used to lift the individual who cannot put any weight on their feet and can be adjusted low enough to pick the individual up off the floor when used with a patient sling.
