Senior male with dementia who cannot walk and very rigid to move.
6-point sling and carrier. Easy to use.
A little hard to steer on carpet but that can't really be expected for a manual lift in this price range.

Female, 83 years old, stroke, wheelchair bound.
Quality and function.
Nylon sling is slippery and end user slipped off the sling frequently. We will be adding a rug gripper to prevent slippage.

I have worked as a tool room machinist and in machine manufacturing and I was extremely impressed about the workmanship and materials used.
The instructions for using the lift were not adequate for a person who has never used one before.

Lifting 200 pounds, the hydraulic pump becomes difficult to operate. I can't imagine lifting 400 pounds.

Used to move 88 year old male suffering from Parkinson's and stroke. Extremely limited mobility
Ease of use along with the fact you can pick someone up off the floor. Not all lifts lower to this point. The 6 point cradle makes transfers a breeze.
