The HFL-500-E is a portable and lightweight human floor lift designed specifically for emergency responders. The HFL-500-E
eliminates manual lifting of patients on medical-emergency and lift-assist dispatches.
The HFL-500-E will safely lift a person, seated or on a backboard, weighing up to 500 lbs., without causing injury to either the emergency responders or the fallen patient. The HFL-500-E is also designed to easily transport patients through tight spaces, hallways, and around corners.
Among EMS worker injuries and illnesses, sprains and strains were the most common diagnosis. Most injuries affected the upper and lower trunk, hands and fingers. The greatest portion of injuries/illnesses involved overexertion and bodily reactions. About half of the overexertion and bodily reaction events were specifically identified as overexertion during lifting.” https://www.cdc.gov/niosh/topics/ems/data.html
Working in partnership with firefighters and paramedics, IndeeLift has developed the newest tool in the arsenal of safe patient handling, Human Floor Lifts (HFLs). These HFLs reduce injuries to both patients and responders by minimizing physical contact, and eliminating manual lifting. With the push of a button, HFLs by IndeeLift quickly lift even the largest of patients and safely transport them from a hard to access area where gurney can’t go, to somewhere more manageable. That includes down stairs.
Fire departments already using these tools report a 100% success rate with zero injuries to their personnel or patients!
