Hebix -mobile Hebehilfe / mobile lifing aid for homecare

Hebix -mobile Hebehilfe
Hebix -mobile Hebehilfe

After having done intensive research and interviews on the topic,
we decided that we wanted to tackle the problem of falling
in home care. A debriefing with the target group proved
to be fruitful.
With the mobile lifting aid you can raise people that have fallen over,
who would otherwise require outside assistance, in order to get back on
their feet. Hebix is intended for home care, due to its light weight and
compressibility. 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 maual labour.
