Safe fall recovery is where it’s AAT

AAT is bringing to market the Indeelift, a mobile platform that it refers to as a “people picker upper”.

This rechargeable battery-powered lift has been designed to alleviate many of the issues that arise when trying to get a conventional swing hoist into place around a fallen person.

Based around a steel platform, the Indeelift slides into position to lift, gently and smoothly, the fallen person from floor to standing. The design of the lift, coupled with integrated rise assist handles and safety belts, optimises stability during the process. A range of versions enable even morbidly obese residents (up to 250kg/39st) to be lifted to their feet safely and with dignity.

“Each care home experiences an average of at least three falls/month. The Care Inspectorate advises as good practice the use of lifting equipment to optimise the safety of residents when they have fallen, in appropriate circumstances, as part of the post fall pathway procedure,” says AAT Director Peter Wingrave.

“Indeelift brings a new, dignified approach to that safe transfer. It is probably the least invasive recovery solution, and offers the least possible risk, for the fallen person and care staff.”
