- Important Information
The Handi Lift is one of many manual handling aids we supply and has proved very useful when transferring patients from bed to chair/wheelchair
Depending on the co-operation from the patient, one nurse uses the Handi Lift, but it is highly recommended that two nurses assist in the transfer. This transfer sling is made from very strong material, but is very light and comfortable to use, both for the nursing staff and patients. The large padded handles are comfortable for the nurse’s hands and in use, the sling will mould to the patient’s body for their comfort.
A big advantage of the Pelican Handi Lift is that it can be rolled up and put in a pocket, so it is always handy when needed to transfer a patient. Quite often, transfer aids are left in another room and the staff have not got the time to go searching for them and consequently they are not used. Help your staff by giving them their own personal Handi Lift.
The Pelican Handi Lift is economically priced and if cross-infection is likely, the cost is reasonable enough for each patient to have their own personal Handi Lift.
The Handi-Turn, another Pelican product, is a revolving transfer disk that is helpful and is used in conjunction with the Handi-Lift when turning patients. Alternative products are the Pelican Handi Lift Walk Belt and the Pelican Soft Transfer Belt. Consult your Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist or Back Care Specialist when using Manual Handling Products.

General Manual Handling Warning: Manual Handling products are designed to assist carers to help patients. They will not make the carer stronger or fitter, but with correct training and use of the products, should make manual handling easier and safer for both staff and patients. When training, practise with an able-bodied colleague. If any procedure is not comfortable or is difficult and puts the carer or patient in a dangerous position, the participants should call out to stop the manoeuvre, recover and recommence. Never jeopardise your health by straining, twisting or being incorrectly positioned when manual handling. Always select the most appropriate equipment for the patient’s current condition and if in doubt, use mechanical equipment. Ask your Manual Handling adviser for individual guidance.
