The user of this product is a 94-year old woman who is 295 lbs and can no longer walk.
The big wheels are better for bariatric patients, but still not good enough to glide easily over carpet.
The product did not come with a technician to set it up: FedEx dropped off the 100lb+ box off and we had to put it together ourselves. The SpinLife customer service rep told me on the phone that I could set it up myself, no tools required. I had to get on the phone with the manufacturer. It definitely does require tools (two wrenches) to tighten the bolts in a way that makes it safe to use.

78 year old male with very little mobility and little arm strength.
Strength and durability
Very difficult to manuever on a rug but we have tried to cover most of the area of use with heavy plastic mats as those used under office chairs.

The width, it can pick the patient up from the floor, and it is easy to operate.
It does not have a built-in scale for weighting patients.

It is easy to use, and you feel safe when sitting inside the sling.
I would like to see the bar angle to a position so that the individual could hold onto it. A person might feel safer if they could reach and hold onto the bar instead of the ropes.

70 year old male, approx. 240 lbs, with Multiple Sclerosis. He is a paraplegic, but has good upper body strength.
Ease of use. It eliminates the stress of backaches for the caregiver since it is no longer necessary to pump up the hydraulic lift. Push button power is the way to go, especially when it has to be used multiple times during the day.
Have not found any problems with the product, except for needing help in putting it together. The main problem is that the insurance companies don't see that a product of this type is a necessity for older couples who don't have the strength to use the manual lifts.

much sturdier and easier to hook up the sling
still doesnt move on the carpet as easy as we needed. I was expecting larger wheels and my carpet is not deep pile or the pad under it. however his weight may be a factor here

My wife is 67 and has MS and now has no use of her legs. This lift is a lifesaver for us. I'm 71 and caregiver for 95% of the time.
It does what it is designed to do and does it well.
The only weakness I could find was that I would like less play where the vertical part of the lift meets the base. A more precise fit would make me feel better.

Bed bound wife, with severe arthritis in knees and unable to stand on her feet. 83 years old
Smooth operation and easy to manipulate the person in the sling.
Assembly from cartons was not easy. Would not operate on first try, then discovered the safety switch/button had been pushed in.
