Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution agreement with Molift®, an Etac company, to offer active and passive patient lifters to a wider consumer market. Headquartered in Norway, with offices and distribution all around the world, Molift began over 25 years ago when its Founder and inventor, Hans Kasper Andresen, was hospitalized for an extended period of time. He personally witnessed how much strain the nurses suffered to their backs, arms and shoulders when moving or lifting patients, and a seed of an idea began to grow in his mind.
This idea blossomed into what was to become the world's first battery-powered patient lifter. He received valuable information about lifting procedures, injuries and strains associated with improper lifting from his physiotherapist wife, and learned about the importance of proper lifting techniques to avoid aggravation of a patient's condition. Molift expanded quickly through the years as they designed and created many diverse and innovative means of safety for transferring people in a comfortable and dignified manner, while also avoiding physical strain on the healthcare caregiver.
Molift offers both active and passive patient lifters that are lightweight, intuitive and easy to use, especially designed to work in harmony with the body's own natural movements. Moving and handling is a partnership between caregiver, equipment and patient, and Molift designs the most effective and high quality lifting equipment on the market to ensure caregiver safety and patient dignity and respect. They are dedicated to continuously developing insight into all of the possible reasons that caregivers get injured as a result of moving and handling patients, and they transform this insight and expertise into effective, cutting edge products such as stand-up lifts, passive patient lifts, slings, stretchers and ceiling hoist systems.
Molift's engineering proficiency ensures that their products are the best in their class when it comes to usability, quality, efficacy and durability and have twice won The Award for Design Excellence, a leading award for design and innovative solutions in Norway and given to both manufacturers and the designers who have cooperated on the development of the products. Molift additionally supports the environment by exclusively using rechargeable NiMH batteries in all of their lifts, and these longer-lasting batteries do not contain any lead, mercury, cadmium or other heavy metals.
“We are proud to introduce these state-of-the-art patient lifting solutions from Molift to more consumers,” said Hulet Smith, Founder and CEO of Rehabmart. “With their wide and varied selection that we offer from Rehabmart.com, everyone will be sure to find exactly the right solution for their own patient lifting, handling and moving needs.
