I really like this new kind of sling in which the lower body loops of the sling fit under the patients thighs. This part of the sling is shaped like a "U" and we are able to fit the sling securely around my parent with a minimal amount of patient "turning/rolling". This is convenient because my parent is a large person. It also has a large lift range (in height), which helps maneuver the patient during some transfers. The height of the wheels is ideal (not too high), which makes it easier to maneuver under furniture. It's smaller than other lifts but seems to be engineered to have a lot of convenient advantages without sacrificing lifting power in height.
This lift comes in two versions and can be converted from a hydraulic (pump) to an electric battery powered lift. We have the hydraulic pump version and the pump had to be replaced because, over time, the lifting boom would slowly drop and would not hold the patient at one height. It was easily replaced with a new one from the manufacturer. The new pump works and it has seemed to correct the issue.. Another issue with the pump is that the distance the pump raises the patient is a lot less than pumps of other manufacturer's devices. This was not a side by side comparison but what we recall from memory. We have used two other manufacturer's devices. It will be interesting if we convert to electric battery actuator version and then compare ease of use, electric vs pump.

I am an "informal" caregiver for one of my parents. Both myself and Certified Aids use this lift.
