Las Vegas-based Easy Lift Up offers the Easy Lift Up system, a personal lifting cushion designed as an assistive device to caregivers and people that find it difficult or impossible to get back up on their own if they have fallen.
The cushion is engineered with air pump technology to safely lift a person off the floor and help prevent further strain and injury to both the fallen and the caregiver.
The cushion is positioned flat on the floor, and once the fallen person is seated on it, it uses air pump technology to lift the person to a height of 22 inches off the floor in approximately 3 minutes.
The lightweight, compact system can be used both indoors and outdoors, and fit into small spaces while still boasting enough power to lift up to 600 pounds.
The cushions are easy to clean and can be quickly inflated, and the air pump that operates the lift is electrically powered.
“Our goal with Easy Lift Up is to help people get back on their feet, especially seniors, and avoid additional injury when faced with a fall,” says Stephen Huston, the company’s CEO, in a media release.
“With falls on the rise as the US population continues to age, better solutions are needed to help those suffering from falls, and prevent further injury when getting up, all the while maintaining their dignity. Easy Lift Up is that better solution.”
