The lift transfers patients in a very natural, comfortable and dignified manner, allowing it to be used comfortably outside the home, as well as inside.
Weighing only about 46 pounds, its light weight makes it easy and convenient to take it with you.
The lifts' legs can be placed either straight ahead or spread apart for transfers, or folded in for storage. When folded, it fits easily in the trunk of a car without disassembly, and can be unfolded for use in seconds.
Its small size allows it to maneuver easily in tight spaces.
With the lifts' legs and support arms folded, the lift can be rolled like rolling luggage, and stored in a closet or car trunk.
Very little effort is required to turn the crank to lift a patient.
Either the patient or attendant may raise and lower the lift by turning the conveniently accessible crank, allowing the patient to participate in the transfer process if desired.
We offer a money-back guarantee. Please review our policies in our Order Info area.

The PTA is intended for transferring between sitting positions. When transferring from/to surfaces without a back support, individuals should have sufficient upper body balance to support themselves in a sitting position prior to and after transferring. The lift will not raise someone from a laying down position into a sitting position.
