Transfer and lifting aids
Handicare has a unique easy transfer concept, the market's widest and most comprehensive range of clever, easy-to-use and safe transfer and lifting aids designed to make life easier, both for the user and for the caregiver. Handicare is a complete solution that provides for the majority of patient transfer or manual handling requirements. From the simplest to the most complex scenarios, from the lightest to the heaviest. The concept encompasses assistive devices for four different categories of transfers:
- Transfer, assistive devices for manual transfers of users between two locations.
- Positioning, assistive devices for manual repositioning of 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 users.
For all transfer situations and for all users
The Handicare concept provides safe solutions for 14 different transfer situations, which basically covers all transfer scenarios. The availability of manual transfer aids as well as complete solutions for mechanical lifting of users allows for the creation of individually adapted solutions for users with a functional capacity and an activity level reaching from active to somewhat active to completely passive.
Improved work environment and quality of care
Our philosophy is that the user should always be allowed to participate in the transfer to the best of his or her ability. The more active the user is, the easier the transfer will be for the caregiver. In addition to strengthening the user's muscles, this also contributes to his sense of independence and dignity. In this way, we can improve the quality of life for the user while at the same time making the caregiver's job easier and safer.
Significant cost savings
The number of people requiring transfer assistance is steadily increasing. And load injuries and accidents cause huge occupational health and safety problems that account for enormous costs in the care sector. Handicare offers simple solutions for great results and, at the same time, achieves significant cost savings.
For more than 30 years we have been developing and providing Handicare, we have seen what our solutions can do for people, and this inspires us to continue developing new devices and transfer methods.
We love easy transfers!
