A patient lift is a mechanical device that is used in health care to transfer physically disabled patients. There are three basic types of patient lifts: mobile lifts ( floor lifts), overhead lifts and sit-to-stand lifts. Together with a patient lift, some type of sling, normally made of textile fabric such as cotton or polyester, is used. Slings are available in many different models and variants for optimal function in different lifting situations e.g., lifting between the bed and the wheelchair or gurney, lifting between the wheelchair and the toilet, or for turning the patient in bed. In hospitals, patient lifts that are specially designed for horizontal lifting, i.e., lifting the patient in a supine position, for example, to an operating table, are common.
