Elevon / patient lifter


Due to demographic change, much more support is needed in nursing in the future.One of the biggest problems in care is the transferring of patients. Therefore, it is important to develop an innovative assistant for the health care sector.
Elevon is a semi-autonomous, multi-functional patient lift that allows to transfer patients with only one caregiver. For example, the patient can be easily taken from a bed and transferred onto a wheelchair. Thereby it is important to ensure a simple workflow process.
