Lighten / Assistive device

Lighten
Lighten

Nowadays, earth's population has a trend towards an aging society. It is often to see the elderly take care of the elderly, or young teenagers take care the elderly. When these kinds of caregivers help patients to get up from bed, the lack of enough strength or the patient is too heavy for the caregiver might cause a serious problem. This situation could even lead to a possible injury to either the elderly or the assistant.
(The Lighten) reduces the caregiver’s burden, and makes the process safer and more comfortable for both caregiver and the elderly.
