WorkSafe Products is an ergonomics company specializing in safe patient handling issues and office ergonomics.
Sometimes even Santa needs a lift after a long night flying around the world. Rudolf and the Elves were glad to have the EZ Out to help get Santa out of the sleigh!
Since WorkSafe Products is an independent lift dealer, we are approached by other manufacturers to represent other 3rd party products. Recently I received information from an overseas manufacturer regarding their slings. They had a wide variety that would work on the EZ Lifts that we sell. Without asking, I assume that these slings could be sold at about half the price of the EZ Way slings.
After careful review of the literature, I saw a number of dangers I wanted to pass along.
First: you are using a sling to hold your patient 3 to 4 feet in the air. A dropped patient at this height could be catastrophic. So my observations were:
Note that the FDA says: “Match the sling to the specific lift and the weight of the patient. A sling must be approved for use by the patient lift manufacturer. No sling is suitable for use with all patient lifts”
For more from the FDA see: FDA issues best practices guidelines for Patient Lifts
From my evaluation of this product, I believe the our EZ Way Slings for our EZ Lifts will last longer, would be more comfortable for the patient and be much safer. If you have any questions please be sure to contact me.
WorkSafe Products is now carrying the Rise tabletop sit/stand. This device provides a stable platform for working in a sitting or standing position. It is easy to adjust by simply lifting the keyboard platform to the desired height. Also, wire management is included to provide a nice clean office setting.
