Portable Patient Lift

BestCare PL400EF:
  • Power Lift
  • Folding
  • Transportable
The BestLift PL400EF is a Full Body Patient Lift with a 400-lb lifting capacity. It's small footprint, makes it ideal for home use, and it easily folds up for storage. When folded this lift will fit in most automobile trunk compartments for transporting or traveling.

Performs safe transfers when:
  • Lifting patient from floor after a fall
  • Lifting from bed to wheelchair
  • Transfer from wheelchair to commode
  • Transfer to any surface

It's small footprint allows access in tight spaces, especially bathrooms, doorways and hallways. A low 4.5" base height fits under most beds.

Folding Portable Patient Lift:
This portable system can be folded down to a compact transportable unit for storage or taking on trips. Complete unit weighs 83 lbs.

Battery Powered:
This system operates on a 24VDC rechargeable battery pack that provides about 40% more lifts per charge than competing brands. Optional second battery pack.

Dual User Controls For Greater Reliability:
All patient lifting and lowering is performed by push-buttons on either the hand control (pendant) or using the controls provided directly on the control box. This dual control system assures the Lift can be operated in case the hand control is damaged, misplaced, or malfunctions.

Easy Base Opening/Closing:
The BestLift PL4000EF includes a foot pedal operated base opening for wheelchair/commode access. Low base height provides maximum stability and fits under most beds.

Designed for both in-home use and nursing home or facility applications.

Sling Compatibility:
Works with most 2, 4 or 6-Point Slings.

Safe Patient Transfers:
The BestLift PL400EF allows a person to be lifted and transferred safely, with minimum physical effort provided by the caregiver.

Cradle Options:
Standard PL400EF includes a 2-Point cradle that can easily handle both 2 and 4 point slings. The optional 6 point cradle can use 2,4, or 6 point slings. We recommend the 6-Point Cradle option for true flexibility with most industry slings. The 6-Point Cradle also prevents the "pinching" effect since the sling straps are spread further apart.

Very well made product.  Haven't had to use it yet but I believe it will work great when I need to use it for my husband who falls due to his Parkinsons disease.

5 of 5 BestLift Folding Patient - only way to go. April 17, 2020
Reviewer: Michael Beardain from Oklahoma City, OK United States  
Lift was packed very well, yet easy to remove and stand up as a two wheel dolly.  Received in four days from date of ordering.  PHC was easy to work with and able to answer my questions.
Lift works as shown in videos and I am very pleased I decided to buy the fold up model.  Looks nice standing in my closet and hope my wife never falls again.
