MOBILE LIFTING AID
With Hebix caregivers are able to raise people that have fallen over, who would otherwise require additional assistance, in order to get them back on their feet. Hebix is intended for home care. It is light weight and compressible. Specially shaped edges enable the patient to be raised from a supine into a seated position. The aim was to create an aid for nursing staff in order to ease manual labour. Due to the specially shaped edges of the roll-off profile of the site parts the forces required for lifting a patient are reduced to 60 %.
To find the most supporting shape for the side parts, which reduce the required force for lifting a patient, several roll-off profiles have been tested ,evaluated and selected.
