Patient Transfers:

  • Patient Transfer - Transfer tools include a range of supplies like transfer boards, slide sheets, and more equipment designed to assist with a variety of different transfers.
  • Shower/Bath Transfer Chairs - Perfect for making it easier for people to move into and out of showers and bathtubs, these chairs offer comfortable and stable support for people either moving by themselves or with assistance.
  • Transfer Assists - These transfer assists are designed to smooth and support transfers of all kinds, including pivot, lateral, and horizontal. These tools offer support to enable people who cannot transfer themselves safely to move between areas with ease.
  • Transfer Boards - Designed to bridge gaps between two surfaces, transfer boards provide a smooth, sturdy bridge between a range of different areas. They allow users to easily slide along the board to transfer between surfaces.
  • Gait Belts - These belts are designed to provide a sturdy handhold for caregivers to support people who need assistance. They help prevent falls and injuries by offering a safe point of contact for caregivers to provide support and control movements.
  • Gurneys - Gurneys are mobile beds designed to serve as a transport vessel between rooms, or between different wings of a hospital. They offer safe, stable transport, especially for people who cannot sit upright safely to be transported via a wheelchair.
  • Bariatric Gurneys - Offering the same functionality of standard gurneys, these gurneys provide a greater amount of support and often a larger size to better support larger or heavier patients. 
  • Stokes Basket - A stokes basket is a rescue stretcher designed to be used by emergency medical personnel, helping them to recover people who have been injured and need to be transported to a hospital.
  • Pediatric Bath Transfer Benches - These transfer benches are designed to make it easy to help children transfer in and out of the bathtub or shower. They bridge the gap, smoothing the transfer over the bathtub edge.
  • Pediatric Transfer Assists - Designed as smaller or more child-specific models of traditional transfer tools, these transfer assists are perfect for making movements around the home or community safer and easier.

  • Weight Capacity: Rehabmart offers a variety of lifts with a weight capacity ranging from an upper limit 340 to 700 lbs. Special bariatric models are also available to accommodate heavier patients.
  • Range of Lift Height: Lifts should offer a wide range of lift heights to reach low enough so patients who have fallen to the floor can be lifted up, and high enough to lift patients up to a high mattress height (generally up to 66 inches).
  • Emergency Features: All electric lifts should have a control to stop the lift motor in case of an emergency and should have a manual override so patients can be safely moved in case of a power loss.
  • Scale: A built-in scale is a convenience for caregivers and healthcare providers to easily weigh patients while transferring them.
  • Slings: A number of specialized slings are available to suit a patient’s unique needs. Specialized slings include padded slings, full body slings, disposable slings, stretcher slings (for supine transfer), divided leg slings, mesh bathing slings and toileting slings.

Category FAQs

When is it time to use a patient lift?
Traditional sling patient lifts are typically reserved for patients who have no other assistive transfer options available. If the patient is mostly or totally dependent, then sling lifts are the safest and most effective way to lift and transfer them between locations, while more mobile patients might find sit-to-stand lifts a viable solution for safe and comfortable sitting and standing.

How do I size a patient for a lift or sling?
Patients should be measured in height, weight, and hip width and you should choose the appropriate sling size based on the manufacturer’s recommendations for your patient’s size and weight. If your patient is between sizes, then a smaller size might keep them more secure, but always ensure that you choose a weight capacity higher than your patient’s weight.

Does Medicare cover the cost of patient lifts?
Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) covers patient lifts as durable medical equipment (DME) that your doctor prescribes for use in your home. Visit Medicare for more information.

I’m a caregiver. How can I find out more about patient lifts and safety?
The FDA offers a lot of helpful information and safety tips on how to safely transfer patients from place to place. This document is a great resource to learn about proper caregiver safety tips.
