Lavin Lift Straps are an accessory that works with any standard patient lifter. They allow one caregiver the ability to safely suspend the lower portion of the patient’s body. This process eliminates the need for caregiver lifting and the need for additional assistance often needed to perform these procedures.

Using the Lavin Lift Strap
The Basic Process
The Basis Process illustrated here is what you’ll need to learn to lift the patient’s hips to access the buttocks and lower back for cleaning and changing.
Reusable Lavin Lift Mutlitsize Straps™ feature easy to fit multisize straps lined with medical grade Enthera™ which wicks away moisture and provide a softer more secure fit. When used properly, the straps do the work of safely lifting your loved one in just a few easy steps! They are available in three sizes, Medium, Large and Extra Large (for Bariatric and/or obese patients).
Process for Patients of Size
The Bariatric Process
The Double Strap/Bariatric Process is intended for larger patients and those with varicose veins or other conditions resulting in extremely sensitive legs. Using Re-usable Lavin Lift Straps correctly sized to the patient’s thighs and calves, this process distributes the stress points along the leg, thereby avoiding unnecessary discomfort. Once the straps are securely fastened, the caregiver positions a lifter over the patient’s thigh, attaches the straps and activates the patient lifter. The Double-Strap Process permits a higher lift of the patient’s lower body than the basic single strap process.
The Limb Suspension Process
The Limb Suspension Process is for wound care and/or treatments, catheter insertion and other processes requiring a caregiver to lift a limb or limbs.
In the Limb Suspension Process, a caregiver simply attaches an appropriately sized strap to the limb of the patient and secures the strap to a patient lift. Lavin Lift Strap is not a sling but a secure strap, so the limb can be raised without danger of slipping. Virtually no lifting is required on the part of the caregiver. Disposable Lavin Lift Straps are available for Single Patient Use requirements, as well as the Re-usable shown in the training video.
Hospital-tested, Lavin Lift Straps provide a safe, secure environment for both patients and caregivers.
