Patient (Hoyer) Lifts
This helpful device can lift you in a sling and transfer you between your bed, wheelchair, recliner chair, and other locations. It can also help lift you off the ground, should you fall. Manual hand-pumped patient lifts are covered by insurance. Battery-powered lifts operated by remote control are not covered.
Slings for Patient Lifts
There are different types of slings that can be useful in different situations. Your physical or occupational therapist will recommend the best sling for you. Split-leg slings are helpful for ALS and mesh slings can get wet. Initial slings are covered by insurance and will be ordered and delivered with your patient lift.
