To use Lavin Lift straps for patient care, you’ll first need to determine which model is appropriate for your loved one, patients or facility.
Lavin Lift Straps
Single Patient Use
Disposable Lavin Lift Straps
Lavin Lift Straps are a patient lift accessory that work with all standard patient lifters with T-bar technology to gently elevate the lower half of a patient’s body and give caregivers easy access for cleaning, changing, and care delivery needs.
Lavin Lift Straps are not to be used for patient transport or restraint. Only use the Reusable model with bariatric patients.
Medicare-approved and hospital-tested, Lavin Lift Straps make it possible for one caregiver to do the work of two.
This chart will help you decide between the Reusable and Disposable models.

Lavin Lift Straps products and processes are patented. Whatever your requirements, Lavin Lift Strap has a solution, with either disposable, bariatric or reusable models of the Lavin Lift Strap.
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.
The “Basic Process” you see 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.
The Double-Strap 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. Bariatric patients should only use re-usable Lavin Lift Straps and the double strapping process.
The Limb Suspension Process
The Limb Suspension Process for Wound Care and/or Treatments, Catheter Insertion and other processes requiring a caregiver to lift a limb or limbs featuring Lavin Lift Multisize Reusable Straps.
Lavin Lift Straps can be used to suspend limbs during treatment, as well as lifting a patient’s lower body for cleaning, changing and wound care. In this process, a caregiver simply attaches an appropriately sized strap to the limb of the patient. Then secure the strap to a patient lift. Since the Lavin Lift Strap is not a sling but a secure strap, the limb can be raised without danger of slipping. Virtually no lifting is required on the part of the caregiver.
