EinfachHoch / Emergency get up help


“Einfach Hoch“ is a helping tool for the helper. When seniors or overweighted people fall on the floor in their domestic environment very often it is hard or impossible for them to get back on their feet and even for a helping person this can be very difficult especially if the helping person is in the same age.
“Einfach Hoch“ has been developed to support these peolple. It
is an airbag which is placed under the fallen person and slowly filled by a compressor hosted in the package case. It lifts up to 150 kg weighted persons in a comfortable and stable sitting situation.
