Liko® HygieneVest™, models 50/55, are designed for safe and comfortable lifting to and from the toilet. The vest offers almost fully upright sitting, and provides functional and safety advantages. The HygieneVest works well in complicated situations, such as when lifting amputees or patients with poor muscle tone.
The vest section firmly supports the upper body during lifting, while a generous opening around the buttocks leaves the lower body free for dressing and undressing during toilet visits. Intended for sit-to-sit lifting, the vest facilitates both lifts to the toilet and positioning in a wheelchair with its upright posture. Since it does not enclose the buttocks, the HygieneVest is ideal for lifting to and from molded seats and close-fitting wheelchairs.
