UpLyft™ is the first FDA-compliant self-transfer system between bed and wheelchair for individuals with limited mobility. In 1 minute, a person can self-transfer him/herself with UpLyft™ from a flat/supine position in bed into their wheelchair or vice versa. UpLyft replaces slings, body boards, and other inferior lift-to-stand mechanisms that require nursing assistance and physical force for patient transfer.
For consumers at home, UpLyft allows individuals to regain their sense of independence with its self-transfer feature. In healthcare settings, UpLyft protects workers from back injuries related to patient lifting, avoiding costly workers' compensation claims.
UpLyft is compatible with both ceiling and floor hoists, featuring padded “finger panels” that wrap securely around a person’s thighs and torso. These panels avoid the discomfort often experienced with similar inferior lift solutions, such as cloth slings and body boards. UpLyft features dual controls that allow for a caregiver or a loved one to assist with patient transfer or for an individual to perform self-transfer.
