5 Reasons to Use the Raizer Lifting Chair

With the end of the financial year looming, now’s the time for different NHS trusts to invest in equipment that had perhaps been on their wishlists for the last 12 months.

One thing that different trusts around the country look to invest in is the Raizer emergency lifting chair. The Raizer is particularly good for ambulance services, local councils, care homes, hospital, community NHS stores and first responders when attending calls for people who have fallen and can’t get up.

So here are five reasons you should invest leftover budget in the Raizer!

1. It’s a single carer lift

One of the most unique things about the Raizer is that it only takes one carer to make it work. Other falls lifts need one person to make the device work, and another person to support the person as they’re lifted from the floor.

With the Raizer, you can save time and money because it only requires one person to use it and it means that you can respond to the falls more effectively. This also helps the fallen person feel less distressed because they’re not as crowded.

2. Easy to transport

The Raizer is great for NHS services because it’s incredibly easy to move around. Unlike things like mobile hoists that can be clunky and heavy, the Raizer can be packed down and carried around in two bags.

For even easier transportation, you can get the Raizer trolley which allows you to wheel it around with ease. This will your staff to respond quickly and effectively without any cumbersome equipment.

3. Reduces injuries

Using the Raizer will help to reduce any unnecessary injuries your staff might usually sustain when trying to get someone back on their feet after a fall. Back strains and other pains will be minimised because the Raizer will do all the lifting.

Because it’s so easy to use, the Raizer requires very little moving and handling to be done. All your staff need to do is put together the colour-coded pieces and press the button to begin lifting the person back to a seated or standing position (take a look at how it works).

4. Compact for smaller areas

Another benefit of the Raizer is that it is very compact. This means it can be used in more restrictive spaces where other fall lifts and mobile hoists might not fit.

This is particularly useful for ambulance services and first responders who attend calls where people have fallen in confined spaces. Whether it’s the bathroom or the base of the staircase, the Raizer should fit with ease and get the person back on their feet wherever necessary.

5. Long-lasting battery

On a full charge, the Raizer can carry out about 40 lifts with the maximum load of 150kg/23.5 stone, or 100 lifts with an average load around 80kg/12.5 stone.

This means that you don’t have to worry about needing to charge it after every lift and it gives you the ability to use it out and about on the road for several different patients.
