InventHelp®, America’s largest inventor service company, announces that one of its clients, an inventor from Ohio, has designed a device that could assist those with mobility challenges with lifts, repositioning, transfers and toileting needs. This invention is patented.
The “Cris Assist” device could provide a comfortable, convenient and safe way to handle a patient or loved one with control and ease. The accessory would be useful for aiding in moving patients or loved ones in bed, for toileting needs, for rolling from side to side and for lifting, transferring or repositioning. Additionally, according to the inventor, the design may prevent skin issues.
The Cris Assist lifting device would consist of an octagonal shape that could be producible of rubber and cotton and in different sizes. Eight slits would be positioned around the perimeter of the device to enable the caregiver to grip the device safely in the area needed to transfer, lift or reposition the patient or loved one. A centrally located oval-shaped opening would allow for easier access for toileting needs. To operate, the patient or loved one would be positioned on top of the device when laying or sitting in bed. When the patient or loved is to be moved for bathroom, reposition or transfer purposes, the caregiver would place their hands through the appropriate slits and grab the device. The caregiver could then pull, lift or reposition the patient to lift him or her into or out of bed, transfer him or her to a sliding board or move him or her to a sitting position.
InventHelp® is attempting to submit the invention to companies for review. If substantial interest is expressed, the company will attempt to negotiate for a sale or royalties for the inventor. For more information, telephone Dept. 09-CLC-2520 at (800) 851-6030.
