Healthcare Trusts across the country invest in the Raizer M and Raizer 2 lifting chairs. The Raizer lifting chair is of particular help to ambulance services, local councils, care homes, hospital, community NHS stores and first responders when attending calls for people who have fallen and can’t get up.
As the fiscal year draws to a close, here are five reasons you should boost your falls response teams abilities to meet 2 hour urgent community response targets with the Raizer lifting chairs.
One of the most unique things about the Raizer lifting chair is that it only requires a single carer to make it work. Other falls lifts need one person to make the device work, and another person to support the person as they’re lifted from the floor.
With the Raizer, you can save time and money because it only requires one person to use it and it means that you can respond to the falls more effectively. This also helps the fallen person feel less distressed because they’re not as crowded.
The Raizer is great for NHS services and urgent community response teams as it is incredibly mobile and compact. Unlike other lifting devices like mobile hoists that can be cumbersome and heavy, the Raizer lifting chairs can be packed down and carried around in two bags.
For even easier transportation, the Raizer trolley allows the lifting chair to be wheeled around with ease. This will enable a falls assistant to respond quickly and effectively to falls in the community without needing specific vehicles to carry large equipment.
Using the Raizer lifting chairs can also help reduce any unnecessary moving and handling injuries a falls assistant might sustain when lifting someone back to their feet after a fall. Back strains and other pains will be minimised because the Raizer chair will do all the lifting.
Due to its ease of use, the Raizer lifting chair requires little moving and handling to be done. A falls assistant can simply place the interchangeable parts that fit onto either side of the seat unit. Learn
Sound indicators have also been added so the operator can instantly tell when the device is correctly assembled and ready to lift. (Read more on what’s new with Raiser II)
Another benefit of the Raizer lifting chair is that it is very compact. This means it can be used in more restrictive spaces where other fall lifts and mobile hoists might not fit.
This is particularly useful for ambulance services and first responders who attend calls where people have fallen in confined spaces. Whether it’s the bathroom or the base of the staircase, the Raizer lifting chair can perform lifts in most places with ease and get the person back on their feet wherever necessary.
Fully charged, the Raizer 2 can perform about 80 lifts with the maximum load of 150kg/23.5 stone.
This means that a falls assistant doesn’t have to worry about charging the Raizer 2 after every lift and the lifting device can be used to help multiple patients back to their feet after a non injurious fall.
The Raizer 2 and Raizer M lifting chairs offer multiple benefits to a falls response assistant and fallers; from enabling single handed care and offering a dignified way to for a fallen person to get back their feet.
