Reply To: transferring legs to and from a bed

Hello Beverley,

Multifit have a very good leg lifter. You would have to check the safe working load for it however. If you can show that this person can remain at RH level of care and not need to escalate to PH, this is a saving to MoH. A leg lifter would be a customised piece of equipment and not be expected to be purchased by the Resthome. You may like to approach the NASC service if this person is under 65, or approach the usual OT service you would use. Best wishes.
