Falls Recovery Services in Portswood
At 1Care, we make use of the Raizer Emergency Lifting Chair - the world’s first truly single-handed solution to lifting someone who has fallen. Faster, stronger, and more stable than traditional inflatable lifting cushions, the Raizer is an ideal solution for transferring someone who has fallen to a sitting or standing position.
How does the Raizer chair work for Portswood patients?
The Raizer is made up of seven large parts: four legs, two backrest pieces, and the seat, which holds the mechanism.
When responding to lift elderly or disabled people after a fall, we simply slide the seat under the fallen person’s knees, click the backrest pieces and legs in place and use the remote control to gently raise the chair. This in turn lifts the person into a safe seated chair, which will then enable them to stand up safely once in an upright position.
Both the movement and seated position are dignified and can be operated in any location or floor surface.
