Invacare lifts are becoming one of the most recognized patient lift product lines in the nursing home and home care market due to their durability, excellent design and afford ability. The Invacare Lift line was made to help make handling situations safer and affordable for everyone involved. With their slim design Invacare lifts are versatile enough to use for most any and all patient transfers. The Invacare lift is available in several models for different situations and for different price points. The most affordable Invacare lifts are the hydraulic lifts also known as manual patient lifts. These lifts operate by the caregiver pumping the hydraulic pump handle to raise and lower the patient. These are the most affordable Invacare lifts which start around $400 dollars and can go up to $900 for the heavier weight capacities. The other Invacare lift line available is the electric patient lifts, also known as the fully powered patient lifts. These electric lifts offer the convenience of an electrical hand remote for the caregiver to push a button to raise and lower the patient instead of manually pumping the handle on the hydraulic lifts. The Invacare lift line includes manual lifts, electric lifts and the fairly new and popular line of sit to stand lifts which are becoming the lifts of choice for most nursing homes and hospitals. The Invacare lift is always made with the most dependable parts and backed by one of the best warranties for patient lifts in the Medical Equipment market. Invacare Lifts are easy to assemble and disassemble and also very easy to replace parts or repair if necessary.

Operating an Invacare Lift
Although Invacare recommends that two assistants be used for all lifting preparation, transferring from and transferring to procedures, our Invacare patient lifts will permit proper operation by one assistant. The use of one assistant is based on the evaluation of the healthcare professional for each individual case. Make sure when using all Invacare patient lifts that you do not exceed the maximum weight limitation of the patient lift you are using.
When using an adjustable base lift, the legs MUST be in the maximum Opened/Locked position before lifting the patient.
When the lift sling is elevated a few inches off the surface of the bed and before moving the patient, check again to make sure that the lift sling is properly connected to the hooks of the swivel bar. If any attachments are not properly in place, lower the patient back onto the stationary surface and correct this problem - otherwise, injury or damage may occur. Adjustments for safety and comfort should be made before moving the patient. Patientʹs arms should be inside of the straps. Invacare lift slings are made specifically for use with Invacare Patient Lifts. For the safety of the patient, DO NOT intermix lift slings and patient lifts of different manufacturers.
Before transferring a patient from a stationary object (wheelchair, commode or bed), slightly raise the patient off the stationary object and check that all sling attachments are secure. If any attachment is not correct, lower the patient and correct the problem, then raise the patient and check again.
During transfer, with patient suspended in a sling attached to the invacare lift, Do not roll caster base over objects such as carpet, raised carpet bindings, door frames, or any uneven surfaces or obstacles that would create an imbalance of the patient lift and could cause the patient lift to tip over. Use steering handle on the mast at all times to push or pull the patient lift.
Using a Invacare Lift Sling:
Use an Invacare approved sling that is recommended by the individual�s doctor, nurse or medical assistant for the comfort and safety of the individual being lifted. DO NOT use any kind of plastic back incontinence pad or seating cushion between patient and sling material that may cause the patient to slide out of the sling during transfer.
After each laundering (in accordance with instructions on the sling), inspect sling(s) for wear, tears, and loose stitching.
Bleached, torn, cut, frayed, or broken patient slings are unsafe and could result in injury. Discard IMMEDIATELY. Do not alter Invacare lift slings. Be sure to check the patient sling attachments each time the sling is removed and replaced to ensure that it is properly attached before the patient is removed from a stationary object (bed, chair or commode).
If the patient is in a wheelchair, secure the wheel locks in place to prevent the chair from moving forwards or backwards.
When connecting slings equipped with color coded straps to the invacare patient lift, the shortest of the straps MUST be at the back of patient for support. Using longer straps will leave little or no support for patientʹs back. The loops of the lift sling are color coded and can be used to place patient in various positions. The colors make it easy to connect both sides of the sling equally. Make sure that there is sufficient head support when lifting a patient.
