The Body UP® Evolution
is a patient lift and transfer device that can easily access indoors, outdoors, and assist in patient transfers in an out of a car. This patient lift is ideal for individuals with mobility impairment caused by painful arthritis. The Body Up Evolution concept combines lift and sling technology, with multiple transport capabilities. The Body UP allows people who lack physical strength to lift, transfer, and move their dependent loved one. The sturdy and innovative design of this transfer aid requires minimal effort by both the caregiver and loved one because it does all the heavy lifting!
When used as a patient lift, the sling seat slides underneath the user and attaches with straps (similar to a seat belt buckle) to the frame. By manually turning the handles of the direct drive mechanism, the user is lifted or lowered from a bed, chair or car seat and into the Body UP. Then, the user can be transported to another room or vehicle, without having to be moved from the lift. The base width is adjustable from 24-28.7 inches for added stability. The backrest unlocks to swing open for disassembling the unit for transport, and is easily removable for transfers into a vehicle. The frame cover is removable and machine washable.
The transfer sling included is hand-washable, waterproof polyester. Body Up is available with 4 inch standard size casters or smaller 3 inch casters. Optional items available include the Comfort Cushion, Bath/Toilet Cushion and Stabilization Straps. The Body Up Evolution can be used over for toilet or shower seat transfers when using the optional Bath/Toilet Cushions.
