Caregivers who lift and transfer bariatric patients face risks of musculoskeletal injuries. Installing a ceiling lift is an ideal option to address this concern. These systems are designed to lift, transfer, and reposition patients in a safe and comfortable manner. Established dealers in accessibility equipment offer innovative models of fixed ceiling lifts in New York from top brands like Handicare. The strongest lift in its class, Handicare’s C-1000 is designed to transfer bariatric patients of all sizes, safely and with dignity.
Featuring a total capacity of 1000 lbs, the ceiling lift comes with multiple carry-bar options which make transfers easier for both patient and caregiver. Available in a dual-motor system, Tandem, the lift is equipped with the same features as the single motor system. The Tandem is mounted on dual ceiling tracks running parallel to each other. Each track is fitted with its own independently-operated motor, allowing the caregiver to separately lift the patient’s torso and legs and maintain precise body positioning.
Available in a range of sling sizes and styles for most transfer maneuvers, C-1000 fixed ceiling lift comes with safety features such as emergency stop / emergency lowering and electric hand control. A Four-Point (X-style) carry bar with quick release system attachment makes it easy to change carry bars or add/detach a scale. Multiple carry-bar designs offer flexibility, functionality, and comfort.
