The photo shows a person using a the Guldmann overhead lift with a walking sling. This sling makes it possible for people, who can stand but have limited mobility, to walk without putting their full weight on their limbs. This feature is especially useful for therapudic situations where people are recovering from hip, knee, or foot surgery. Using the lift they can vary the amount of wieght on the their legs from full to just enough to walk without bouncing off the floor.
A Height adjustable roll-over-bed table/tray and a hospital type bed with a variable pressure air matteress from Invacare are also seen in the photo.
The Guldmann lift and slings are available from L.C.S.I. Guldmann Lifts. Contact:
