FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Bradenton, FL)— North Carolina-based EZ Lift announced the introduction of their mobility and lifting aid for seniors. On a mission enhance dignity, independence, and quality of life for patients and loved ones, the company has created and launched a practical and efficient patient transfer device designed to assist family members, caregivers, therapist, and healthcare professionals in serving those with mobility issues or fall risks. The EZ Lift Vest is available for purchase directly from the company’s online store.
“Research shows that musculoskeletal problems are a major source of injury for healthcare workers, and the same is likely true of those who take care of their loved ones at home. Many of these injuries are due to overexertion related to repeated manual handling activities like transferring and repositioning. There have been very few products on the market that have attempted to help healthcare workers and caregivers avoid these injuries, but we’re doing something to change that” said Cathy Foster of EZ Lift Vest.
Instead of continually placing pressure on their shoulders, hands, wrist, or back, the EZ Lift Vest uses multiple hand grip components to allow caregivers and healthcare workers to evenly distribute that pressure around the body and concentrate it along the middle and upper back. This allows for safe patient handling, relieving pressure on the neck, arms and shoulders while providing complete back support during lifting, transferring, and repositioning maneuvers.
Made of a lightweight but sturdy poly-cotton twill, the EZ Lift Vest looks nothing like a medical device and was specifically created to look like a fashionable piece of clothing. The multi-functional vest can help a caregiver perform at least eight different transfer maneuvers and provides the patient or loved one with a comfortable and secure transfer experience. The EZ Lift Vest is proudly manufactured in the U.S.A.
Foster went on to say, “Although caregiver and healthcare worker injuries are commonplace, this doesn’t have to be the case for everyone. Whether it’s a nurse’s aide performing a patient lift or a family member helping their loved one with their daily needs, the EZ Lift Vest provides protection and safety for all involved.”
