Evaluation: Guldmann GLS5 Sit-to-Stand Patient Lift
August 14, 2019 | Evaluations & Guidance
- Sit-to-stand patient lifts are used to transfer patients from one seated position to another. The lift raises the patient from a sitting to a standing position, and the patient remains in this standing position during the transfer. These lifts are designed to hoist and transfer patients safely to and from beds, chairs, wheelchairs, and toilets.
- Major device components and software features:
- Base: V-shaped base design that can be opened for additional stability during a transfer or narrowed to move through a tight place. Four casters on the base allow the lift to move.
- Mast: Connects the base to the boom/lift arm and supports the lifting mechanism
- Boom/lift arm: Connected to the mast and extends over the base to support the sling. The lift arm has hooks on the end to hold the sling.
- Battery: A detachable battery stored behind the mast, beneath the control panel, supplies power to the lift.
