Hebix / mobile lifting aid


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. Due to the specially shaped edges of the rolling profile of the site parts the forces required for lifting a patient are reduced to 60 %.
