Safe Patient Handling

Invacare optimises patient lifting, providing safety and convenience

Patient lifters are vital tools that facilitate the transfer of people with limited mobility, elderly patients with weakness in the lower extremities and patients who have been immobilised following surgery. Ideal for use in both medical and home settings, Invacare’s patient lifting equipment is specially designed to provide the safest and most complete lifting system possible, enabling the patient to be moved up or down from a chair or a bed, as well as from the floor or the toilet, even in the narrowest of spaces.

Patient safety and correct positioning is one of the biggest concerns regarding patient lift systems. Built with high-quality materials, the Invacare hoists make patient transfer easy, convenient and safe for both the patient and the carer. The Invacare product line includes electric and hydraulic systems, stand assistance lifts for individuals with some weight-bearing capacity and patient lifting hoists that accommodate individuals weighing up to 200 kilos, as well as a range of slings and accessories to adapt to all the specific needs of each patient and carer. The correct use of these systems reduces the risk of injury for both patients and caregivers, while affording the patient dignity, comfort and safety.


Selecting the right Invacare hoist and lift system for each case


When choosing a patient lift system, it is important to consider the physical ability of the patient. Invacare offers products for patients of diverse circumstances. So, the Invacare Stand Assist (ISA) range features lifts for independent individuals who need some degree of assistance to stand up, with compact and lighter systems for those who can bear some weight on their foot. These lifts are user-friendly and ideal for family member caregivers, as they are lightweight and can be disassembled and easily transported with no need for tools.


All Invacare hoists come with a range of dedicated slings and accessories to help enhance the needs of a patient or carer.
