Introducing Raizer M: The home care fall assistance device

We have been one of the exclusive UK distributors of Raizer lifting devices for some years now. In that time, we’re pleased to have supplied Raizer lifting chairs to ambulance services, hospitals, assisted living facilities, and care homes. But we’ve always known there was need for a simpler, more cost-effective model for use in your own home. That’s why we’re now stocking and supplying the Raizer M lifting chair!

Speaking to the families and carers of people at risk of falling in their home, we knew they weren’t dealing with tens of falls each week. They just needed support ready if a fall did occur. Something that you can bring out only when you need it and get a loved one back on their feet in no time at all. After all, 1 in 3 people aged 65+ has a fall each year. Plus, falls cost the NHS over £2.3 billion annually and account for 10% of all ambulance call-outs. These stats can be worrying for families wanting to keep a relative safe and out of hospital.

That’s exactly what the Raizer M offers – peace of mind and rapid fall assistance when needed, without the professional-level features that come with the Raizer II.  This affordable solution will give users the independence to get people up after a fall with easy and minimal physical effort.

So, let’s take a closer look at the Raizer M and everything you need to know about it.

What is Raizer M?

The Raizer M is a falls lifting chair designed for easy use around the home.

Raizer M is the first fall assistance device designed specifically with at-home care in mind.

It can be operated by just one person, allowing them to help someone safely back to their feet after a fall.  Assembly takes just a few minutes. Plus, the simple hand crank system means you never need to worry about charging the Raizer M!

The simple, straightforward design of the Raizer M minimises the risk of any injuries by providing an ergonomically correct lift. This means that there’s no additional strain on the body of the person being lifted or the person operating the Raizer M. What’s more, you can store it away when it’s not in use.

How does the Raizer M work?

 Made from seven lightweight components, the Raizer M is a chair that is assembled around a fallen person to lift them back to a seated or standing position.

Whereas the Raizer II is powered by electric, the Raizer M simply uses a hand crank to get the chair moving and gently lift the person.

Step-by-step instructions

    1. With the person laid on their back, start by getting them to cross their arms over their chest and lift their knees to a right angle (or just as close as possible).
      Before assembly the Raizer M, bend the knees and cross the arms
    2. Slide the seat unit behind their knees and up towards their posterior.Step 1 Raizer M Assembly - slide unit behind knees
    3. Slot the two backrest pieces into place. You should hear a click when they are securely locked in place.
      Step 2 - Insert the Raizer M backrest pieces into the seat unit
      Tip: Ask the person to roll to one side (helping them if necessary) so you can slide the back panel beneath their shoulder blade.

 

  1. Take the leg pieces and slide them into the bottom side of the seat unit. Again, you should hear a click to show that they are locked in place.Step 4 - Insert the leg pieces into the Raizer M
  2. Finally, insert the crank handle of the seat unit. Start turning it to get the Raizer M to begin lifting the person up to a seated position – you can go even further to an almost standing position as well!Raizer M crank handleTip: If you’re using the headrest, this is also when you slide that onto the backrest.Raizer M with headrest

Who is it for?

Whereas the Raizer II is designed for more demanding multi-user environments, the Raizer M has been designed for individuals to use in their own homes.

Private users need a simple, straightforward, easy-to-use fall assistance device that gets the job done. Whether it’s for your relative, spouse, or a client you provide domiciliary care for, the Raizer M is the right option for you.

The ‘M’ stands for manual because this model doesn’t need electric power to work. It’s an easy, stress-free way to ensure that the people around you are taken care of and can get back on their feet with very little hassle.

Raizer M vs. Raizer II

There are a few main differences between the Raizer II and the Raizer M – here are three key differences:

  • The Raizer M is designed for at-home use by private individuals, whereas the Raizer II is more high-spec for multi-user care environments.
  • Rather than using electric, the Raizer M manually lifts the person with a simple hand crank device.
  • The Raizer M is a much more affordable option for private users who don’t necessarily need all the bells and whistles offered by the Raizer II.

Other than that, they’re not too dissimilar. Here’s a side-by-side comparison.

Summary

The ‘M’ in Raizer M stands for manual. But it could just as easily stand for ‘manageable’ or ‘movement’ because that’s exactly what the Raizer M provides. With the NHS currently being under so much pressure from the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s imperative that people take the right precautions to prevent any unnecessary hospital stays or ambulance callouts.

The Raizer M works perfectly with this. It makes home fall assistance safe and accessible for more people and reduces stress on paramedics and first responders. It promotes independence and gives people the ability to look after one another with ease and dignity. The Raizer M is easy-to-use, affordable, and essential to any home where someone is at risk of falls.

      How easy is it to operate the crank handle on the Raiser M? I have arthritis in my hands so might find this difficult.

        Hi Jennifer,

        Many thanks for your comment.

        The crank handle is very easy to operate – it doesn’t require much physical effort.
        However, if your arthritis makes it difficult for you to grasp onto door handles or other everyday items at home, a Raizer II may be a better option for you.

        I’ve asked my colleague to get in touch. We can arrange for you to trial the Raizer M and see how you get on with the crank handle.

        Kind Regards,
        Leanne
