Can a Floor Lift Help You Stand If You Live Alone?

"Can this floor lift help me if I live alone?" You might ask this before purchasing the floor lift . The answer is definitely yes; it will help you stand up more safely. This article will also address another common question: "Do I need to place a floor lift in every room?" You don't need to. Let me explain further.

What is a Floor Lift?

The floor lift  is ideal for those prone to falling, providing timely assistance to help them get up from the floor and move to a comfortable place. This not only reduces the risk of secondary injury but also prevents potential redness or injury from friction against the floor. It is a device to lift the elderly off the floor, and it’s also suitable for the following groups:

  • People with limited mobility
  • Patients in rehabilitation
  • Those living alone
  • Caregivers

It’s easy to use, even for seniors. The floor lift can be used in various settings, such as bedrooms, living rooms, gardens, or any stable and safe place. Besides emergency situations, you can also keep it fixed in one location. For example, if you have difficulty moving and are bedridden but need to transfer to the floor, it can be used as a device to assist with this transfer.

Can I Use the Floor Lift in My Garden?

The floor lift can be used in many places, such as the bedroom, bathroom, garden, or anywhere else, thanks to its foldability and the transfer wheels at its base.

  1. Foldability: The lift assist for the elderly is designed with a foldable structure for easy storage and transport, which makes it the perfect choice for travel or limited space.
  2. Transfer Wheels: The AX05 floor lift is equipped with two small wheels at the base. Once folded, the floor lift can be easily dragged and moved to different locations.

Can I Lift Myself from the Floor with the Floor Lift?

VOCIC, a professional mobility aids company is actively addressing this issue and is attempting to design an electric chair lift from the floor for people who live alone, but this kind of device is not available yet. The floor lift was initially designed to assist caregivers and family members, making it easier for them to help someone who has fallen. A single person cannot move the device on their own. However, you might follow below two options:

Call a Neighbor or Nearby Friend

Ask for help from friends or neighbors who can use the floor lift to help you get up. This method is both time-saving and cost-effective. Set your neighbors or friends as emergency contacts for a quick response. Additionally, you can wear a smartwatch to call for help if your phone isn't nearby.

Call 911

If the first method is not for you, try calling 911. No one is more professional in medical emergencies than they are, though this can be costly if done frequently. If your phone isn't within reach, you can wear a medical alert bracelet or pendant. These devices usually have an emergency button that can connect you to a 24/7 monitoring center.
