The Traxx Mobility Systems Titan 500 is a freestanding overhead patient lift for those living with limited mobility. The Titan 500, a ceiling track lift alternative, boasts many advantages over the standard floor-based lifts on the market.
- A single caregiver can safely transfer a patient. A floor-based lift requires two caregivers to safely move a patient.
- No physical exertion required on the part of the caregiver. A floor-based lift must be physically moved and repositioned, with the patient in it, requiring caregivers to put themselves at risk for injury.
- The transfer experience is calming and dignified. The caregiver is within arms reach of the patient throughout the whole transfer process. Floor-based lifts require one caregiver to manually move the product with the patient in it while the other caregiver, if available, “spots” the patient to make sure the lift doesn’t tip over.
- The freestanding overhead lift is out of the way within the bedroom. The frame fits in any bedroom and is ready to go at any time. Floor-based lifts are often in the way when not in use, must be pushed under the bed to lift the patient from bed, and then repositioned to lower the patient. Furniture may need to be moved or removed from the bedroom to use floor-based lifts.
These are some of the benefits a freestanding overhead patient lift has over the floor-based patient lifts. When considering a lift solution for your loved one, be sure to look at all the options. While Medicare may pay for a manual, floor-based lift, is it the best option for your situation? See how the Titan 500 can make life easier for you and your loved one.
