Hoyer Lifts

You may know these types of patient lifting devices as Hoyer Lifts, but Hoyer is actually a brand name and a specific line of Lifts. There are many other brands to shop including Invacare, Apex BestCare, Lumex, Drive Medical and more. The correct name for a standard full body patient lift is actually "Floor Lift" since it's capabilities include lifting from the floor.

Patient Lifts

Are used to transfer patients from bed to chair, wheelchair, or commode as well as picking up from the floor in case of falls. The use of this type mobility lift may enable people who are temporarily or permanently disabled to stay in their own home with assistance from family members or other caregivers rather than having to move a nursing home.

Economical manual-hydraulic lifts are easy to use and provide the basic functions to safely transfer a patient or lift from the floor in the event of a fall. Power Lifts are reliable and work with the push of a button. Powered Lifts using up-to-date technology and features make sense for any long-term care situation or other settings where the Lift is used throughout the day. In addition, using the hand pendant on a Powered Lift enables the caregiver to focus on the patient and not the hardware.
