Every day thousands of elderly and physically challenged people are falling without being able to get up without assistance. The Raizer from Liftup can with ease be assembled and operated by only one assistant. The fallen person can be raised in a safe and effortless manner within a few minutes.
The assistant can safely operate the Raizer with minimal physical effort while at the same time observing and caring for the fallen by for instance supporting the head of the fallen person when the transfer is in progress. The Raizer is an optimal solution for personnel in home care as well as for ambulance services and all personnel working with handling and transfer of individuals in general. The Raizer is light and easy to transport. It is carried disassembled to the place where it is to be used. The Raizer is easily assembled and placed around the fallen individual without strain to neither the fallen person nor the assistant. The Raizer is battery operated and has operation buttons on the side of the chair – and it can be supplied with a remote control as supplementary equipment.
