Patient Lifts

Patient lifts are very important for caregivers who deal with patients with problems standing up on their own. Attempting to move a patient by picking them up alone can result in injuries to the caregiver and an unsafe situation for the patient. Patient lifts provide support and assistance to the caregiver while assuring that a patient will not fall while being lifted.

Sherman Oaks Medical Supplies is a leading retailer of patient lifts from leading manufacturers. Our selection includes basic manual and electric patient lifts along with specialty products such as heavy duty patient lifts for the morbidly overweight. Along with lifts, we also carry different slings and accessories.

Check out some of the products that we offer:

Manual Patient Lifts

Although they are the most basic patient lifts, manual patient lifts are an affordable and quality solution for caregivers. These models are operated by hand while utilizing some hydraulic assistance. Some manual patient lifts can be stored under a bed, making them a great choice for small spaces. They also are the only practical solution when power is not readily available.

Electric Patient Lifts

Caregivers who are looking for solution that takes as much manual work out of the process as possible should consider electric patient lifts. These units use remote controls to lift a person up. They are powerful, reliable and easy to use. In fact, some units are designed so that a patient can use them on their own to get up out of bed.

Stand Up Patient Lifts

Patients who are able to bear some weight when standing but lack the ability to fully bear their own weight have unique needs. Stand up patient lifts are designed with these patients in mind. They allow a person to stand on their own as much as possible while giving them the support they need to not fall down. These are great options for patients in rehab who are learning to stand or walk again.

Bariatric Patient Lifts

Getting into or out of bed or a seated position can be challenging for people who are severely overweight. Transferring a person who weighs more than 350 pounds is logistically challenging and can be impossible with normal lifts. Bariatric patient lifts are designed to help transport heavier patients with greater weight capacities and enhanced features to increase comfort.

Portable Patient Lifts

A person shouldn’t feel like they are confined to their home just because they need the assistance of a patient lift. For situations where a person needs to travel by plane, car or train, they need a solution that can go with them. Portable patient lifts offer the features and durability patients need from a lift in a package that can be quickly assembled and installed in any location.

Patient Lift Slings

The sling is the part of the patient lift that physically carries a person while they are being transported. Getting the right sling is critical to ensuring that the patient is safely and comfortably transported. For example, a standard sling isn’t appropriate for a bariatric patient. There are several specific categories of patient lift slings available, including specialty models such as slings for use when patients are on the toilet or in a bathtub.

Patient Lift Accessories

Sherman Oaks Medical Supplies offers patient lift accessories to help you make your patient more comfortable and assist you with your necessary activities. Accessories include digital patient lift scales, which are designed to help get the weight of a person who otherwise cannot stand on a scale. Patient lift scales have their own weight limits that are separate from the limits of the lift itself.
