They are widely used to support, lift, move and transfer patients. The equipment assists patients in walking, standing, sitting and bed mobility, lateral transfers, and hoisting. It also helps in providing comfort and safety, maintaining personal hygiene, and reducing the possibility of patient injuries and infections. Moreover, these types of equipment reduce the risk of complications, such as urinary tract infections, skin tears, pressure ulcers, and sores. As a result, they find extensive application across nursing homes, hospitals, intensive care units (ICUs), and rehabilitation centers.
