Patient Lift Slings Houston, Tx
Lone caregivers face many challenges.
Simply getting your loved one from their bed to the bathroom, living room, or garage can be physically taxing or impossible. Transfer lift slings and harnesses can facilitate this process. These systems support the weight of the disabled person, and may use a system of ceiling-mounted rails to move that individual around the home.
Sling Lift Options
Portable ceiling lifts are designed to be easily transported from room-to-room or another lifts track, while offering a great flexibility during operation. Our portable ceiling lifts can be easily connected and disconnected by the caregiver from a variety of different types of ceiling track systems. For further convenience, the lift’s motor unit acts as a motor and carry bar, allowing the sling to suspend for easy and compact transporting!
Fixed Ceiling Lifts
The advantages of fixed lift systems include higher lift capacity, easy-to-use battery charger, proven longevity, and an easy-to-use and unobtrusive carry bar. A fixed ceiling lift encompasses a powerful motor unit, which resides in the track system, and functions as a permanent transfer and lifting solution.
Free Standing Lift Systems
Free Stand Systems support a more effective transfer system than the traditional mobile lift. Because our free standing lift systems do not require installation or mounting with the ceiling, they are ideal for rental situations or when ceiling lift and permanent tack installations are not possible or difficult. Free standing lift systems can often provide a more cost-effective solution for temporary and permanent applications.
Sit-to-Stand Lift Aids
Sit to stand lift aids are for use in moving patients, residents or loved ones a short distance, perhaps to a commode or wheelchair. Being that sit to stand transfers are an active process, requiring an input of energy from the patient and the caregiver, they are designed for individuals that are weight bearing on at least one leg.
Patient sling lifts make transfers easy for both patients and healthcare workers. Lift slings for handicapped people are designed to be both easy-to-use and comfortable, making an often difficult process as simple as possible. Explore your different sling lift options below.
What is a Lift Sling?
A lift sling is a device that allows a person with mobility issues to be lifted and transferred. Lifts help to preserve a patient’s dignity during transfers while also helping them to stay safe throughout the lifting process. The devices are also important for the safety of healthcare workers who might otherwise attempt to lift a patient themselves. There are a variety of different lifts and slings available. This means it’s easy to find different slings to use for different tasks, such as bed-to-wheelchair transfers or bathroom transfers.
Lift Slings For Handicapped Patients
Lift slings are helpful for a variety of different people. Some patients will use a lift for temporary assistance while recovering from an injury or surgery. However, handicapped patients will depend on a sling for long-term mobility help. Below are some of the most common lift slings:
As the name suggests, transfer slings are used to help transport a patient from one location to another. This sling lift can be used to help a patient move from bed to a wheelchair, or from a wheelchair to a shower chair, toilet, sofa, or another type of seat. These slings are equipped with special grips to prevent painful friction or potential slips. They also include grips for caregivers to prevent strain while assisting patients.
Transfer slings can use a universal sling harness, a hammock-style harness, or a specially-designed hygiene harness for bathroom transfers. There are also transfer slings that allow patients to be moved laterally. These provide comfort and support for people who cannot sit upright.
Patient Hoist Slings
Patient lift slings are used to position a person, usually for comfort or therapeutic purposes, while the person is in bed. These medical lift slings can be used to elevate a limb or to keep a patient sitting upright. Like transfer slings, there are different types of hoist slings available.
Disposable slings are a great option for short-term needs. These slings are made of durable materials for a safe, comfortable lift. Disposable slings are a hygienic option for hospitals and nursing homes. A variety of disposable options are available, including transfer slings, repositioning slings, and standing/raising aids.
Choosing The Right Solution
There are different types of lift slings available, depending on a patient’s physical abilities, mobility needs, and comfort level. We offer both fixed ceiling lift sling and free-standing lift systems for long-term care. We also offer sit-to-stand lift aids for patients who can bear weight on at least one leg. All three varieties can be customized to fit a patient’s individual needs. Different options include walking/standing harness support, hammock slings, reclining slings, and more.

Don’t Forget The Sling
Of course, a sling lift cannot be used without a sling. Home Comfort Solutions carries a wide variety of different slings for various needs. There are slings for sitting, laying, and standing positions. Some slings are meant to be used for independent transfer, while others are caregiver assisted. Other slings can help users with limited mobility walk on their own. Smaller slings can be used to elevate the arms or legs. There are even disposable slings that are simply replaced when soiled.
