Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) April 25, 2013
Medex Supply is announcing a new addition to its catalog of more than 60,000 products, the Brewer LiftMate patient lift.
The LiftMate is designed to safely move elderly and ill patients from and to hospital beds and examination tables. Patients stand on the LiftMate platform, which raises them to a level where they can comfortably be seated on a bed or table, with minimal hands-on assistance. Portable and operated with a handheld control, the LiftMate is suitable for use in hospitals, nursing homes, and medical clinics, and has a weight capacity of 500 pounds.
Nearly 90% of accidental falls involving the elderly occur in hospital or examination rooms, particularly when patients attempt to get on or off beds and tables without assistance. Back injuries are also a frequent complaint of hospital and healthcare workers who are often tasked with patient transport. As the number of obese elderly patients is expected to rise over the next decade, so will the risk of more injuries caused during patient transport, particularly when no additional assistance, such as a patient lift, is used.
The LiftMate is now available for purchase on Medex Supply’s website at a subtotal of $2,578.95, and with a processing time of about 5 to 7 business days before shipment. Special pricing is available for government agencies, medical, and educational facilities, or if more than one LiftMate is purchased.
