Reply To: Using the molift belt

Hi Jessie

I haven’t ever used this piece of equipment but had a sinking feeling while watching the Utube video which demonstrates overreaching (forces involving both shoulder and spine) while assisting the patient between sitting and standing.

Perhaps the standing position could be achieved by the worker being alongside the patient as in a standard safe sit to stand transfer.

Kind regards
