AAT indeelift

Mobility equipment supplier AAT has launched a “safer” accessible solution to help vulnerable people get up after they have fallen to the floor.

The Indeelift is a mobile platform “people picker upper”, according to AAT. The rechargeable battery-powered lift eliminates all the problems associated with trying to get a conventional hoist with sling into place.

Based around a steel platform, the Indeelift is simply slid into position for it to lift, gently and smoothly, the fallen person from floor to standing. The lift’s design, coupled with integrated rise assist handles and safety belts, optimise stability during the process.

A range of versions enable even morbidly obese residents (up to 250kg) to be lifted to their feet safely and with dignity.

Peter Wingrave, Director of AAT, commented: “Each care home experiences an average of at least three falls/month. The Care Inspectorate advises as good practice the use of lifting equipment to optimise the safety of residents when they have fallen, in appropriate circumstances, as part of the post fall pathway procedure.

“Indeelift brings a new, dignified approach to that safe transfer. It is probably the least invasive recovery solution, and offers the least possible risk, for the fallen person- and care staff.”

Indeelift is the latest addition to AAT’s range of innoative and often unique handling and transfer equipment.

AAT’s brand-leading S-Max stairclimber, which was recently awarded Class I medical device classification, is widely used across healthcare and blue light environments to overcome the short- or long-term barriers of steps and stairs when there is no available lift.

The stairclimber is complimented by a raft of associated support solutions, for sitting, lying, sleeping and bathing.
