Elberton, GA (PRWEB) December 12, 2012
Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution collaboration with Joerns Healthcare to offer their Hoyer® Presence Patient Lift to a wider consumer marketplace. Spanning a business history of more than a hundred years, Joerns started as a high quality furniture manufacturer and entered the healthcare industry with hospital beds and furniture for nursing homes and healthcare facilities in the 1960s. They quickly expanded this medical niche for their business with their unrivaled expertise, and today create health solutions for wound care, treating and healing wounds through advanced therapies; safety, creating a safer environment and reducing falls and staff injuries; and design, helping clients to transform, reposition and upgrade care settings.
The product lines from Joerns include bed frames, prevention surfaces and positioners, therapeutic surfaces, fluid immersion simulation, negative pressure wound therapy, electromagnetic field therapy, patient handling and mobility, and furniture. They launched the trusted and well known Hoyer® Professional Series Lifts and Slings in 2004, which are specifically designed for long-term care and offer unparalleled versatility, safety and the easy handling of patients. With its outstanding lift range, the Hoyer® Presence Patient Lift is especially designed and engineered to handle just about any resident-handling task. A greater spatial area and the 500 pound working load combine to make this lift a perfect fit for larger patients. The sculptured base design makes it possible for caregivers to get closer to patients during transfers, while it beautifully conceals all the working components, and the tapered leg design permits the lift device to be positioned closer to bulky objects such as wheelchairs, commodes and large chairs during patient transfers.
Manufactured of all aluminum construction, the Presence offers innovative design which allows it to accommodate lifts from the floor, as well as transfers to higher surfaces. Features and options include a built-in scale, an ergonomic foot pad for easier operation, a powered base that allows caregivers to open and close the legs with a simple touch of a button, and a hand control clip that holds the pendant in place when not in use to avoid damage. The interchangeable 6-point spreader bar and 4-point positioning cradle offer a variety of support, comfort and flexibility options for both caregiver and patient, with a choice of various sling systems.
“We are elated to introduce more professional health consumers to the amazing benefits of the Hoyer® Presence Patient Lift from Joerns,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “This lift provides a much safer and more comfortable alternative to manual patient lifting, and is tough and durable to deliver years of secure patient lifts, even with heavy use. With the multiple sling options, the Presence provides the versatility and adjustability you require for the many different special needs of your patients. We are proud to offer this, and all of the great healthcare solutions from Joerns to our customers at Rehabmart.com.”
