A Hoyer lift is a type of patient lift that is used to transfer people with limited mobility from one location to another, such as from a bed to a wheelchair or from a wheelchair to a bathtub. The Hoyer lift is named after the company that first manufactured it, Hoyer UK Limited.
The lift consists of a metal frame with hydraulic or electric components, and a sling or harness that is placed around the person being lifted. The caregiver operates the lift using a control box, which raises or lowers the person in the sling.
In electric Hoyer lifts, the control box is usually powered by rechargeable batteries. The batteries can be charge by plugging the control box into an electrical outlet. Some models may also have additional features, such as emergency stop buttons or digital displays that show the weight of the person being lifted.
Hoyer (Patient Lifts) are often used in hospitals, nursing homes, and other care settings to help caregivers move patients who are unable to move themselves. They can be especially helpful for people with conditions such as paralysis, spinal cord injuries, or severe arthritis. However, proper training and safety precautions are necessary to use a Hoyer lift safely and effectively.

Ordered online and delivered to my hotel in downtown, Minneapolis for a convention. Dahl made the rental procedure easy, and I would highly suggest using them if needed.
The zipper on both sides makes it easy for me to get in and out of this high boot. Highly suggest this boot for anyone who needs a diabetic boot.
Had shoulder surgery and Dahl Medical made the recovery easier when they delivered this lift chair into my family room.
