Full-Body Lift

Vancare’s Van-Turn lift increases self-confidence in residents who are able to use their own ability, resulting in both psychological and physiological advantages for everyone involved. The resident’s rehabilitation will improve their quality of life, while bringing a safer work environment for the caregiver. The Van-Turn’s base plate is extremely stable, with an ultra-low step-up height that eliminates the need for residents to lift their feet very high. The foot markers on the base make foot placement safe, simple and secure. Once the patient is standing, the patented steering wheels provide smooth transfers because the caregiver can easily maneuver the lift in tight spaces where sit-to-stand lifts become awkward.
