Portable Patient Lift BestLift

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.

Worth the money March 17, 2018
Reviewer: James W. from El Paso, TX  
Works very well for my wife. Easy to use for moving her from bed to wheelchair and bathroom. Part of the house has carpet and it is more difficult to push. Took a full week for delivery but the savings made it worth the wait.

Folding Lift March 17, 2018
Reviewer: Virginia B. from Racine, WI  
Works very nice. Was delivered within the time frame promised. Customer service was polite and helpful.  Local guy wanted $800 more than what I paid so I shopped around and this was too good to pass up.
