For caregivers, the risk of musculoskeletal injuries is extremely high with manual lifting, transfers, and repositioning of patients. One-third of all reported occupational injuries in health care result from heavy lifting, and 7 out of 10 caregivers consider their work to be heavy.
Letting our products do the heavy lifting minimizes risks associated with manual lifting as well as reducing unnecessary strain on the body. Our overhead lifts contribute to a better work environment, which ultimately results in fewer people being absent due to sick leave.
Ultimately this results in lower staffing costs and a higher level of service for patients, which, in the long run, may contribute to savings in both public or payer finances.
