InventHelp® Client Designs Easier, More Ergonomic Way to Lift Adult Patients (BRK-2153)

Share Article

Pittsburgh-based InventHelp attempts to submit an invention, Riza's Lifting Strap, to companies for review.

An inventor and registered nurse from Birmingham, Ala., knows how difficult it can be to lift an adult patient, especially if the patient is very heavy. "I came up with this idea because I was faced with the impossible need to lift a 300-pound patient with nothing to hold onto," she said.

The patent-pending Riza's Lifting Strap enables two assistants to lift an adult patient who has fallen or can’t get up on his or her own in an easier, more ergonomic manner. It prevents strain and back injury. Overall, it promotes safety and quality care-giving. Easy to use and producible in design variations, it's suitable for hospitals and other healthcare facilities, home healthcare services, and households with immobile and/or physically disabled patients.

The original design was submitted to the Birmingham office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
