Solutions for larger and heavier users
Different groups of users have different needs and requirements. Two basic requirements for transfer and lifting aids to be suitable for larger and heavier users are related to size and safe working load.
This section provides an overview on what Handicare transfer and lifting aids are especially suitable for larger and heavier users and for four different categories of transfers:
- Transfer; assistive devices for manual transfers of larger and heavier users between two locations.
- Positioning; assistive devices for manual repositioning of larger and heavier users within the same location.
- Support; assistive devices for mobility support e.g., during sit-to-stand or gait training.
- Lifting; assistive devices for manual and mechanical lifting of larger and heavier users.
You will also find a couple of bathroom and bedroom aids for larger and heavier users.
