Just like you, we have also had that feeling of frustration that comes along with using traditional methods for lifting and transferring patients and loved ones – like the gait belt, which doesn’t provide adequate support, constantly slides and has to be adjusted, and repeatedly rubs the person we are trying to assist.
There is also this underlying fear of the caregiver getting hurt or becoming injured while helping with everyday activities of daily living. Transferring a 60 lbs child 10 times a day, let alone someone who is 300 lbs, is tiresome and can often lead the caregiver to injuries. That is why we created the Universal Vest.
Our flagship product, the UVests, is a multifunctional, durable, medical equipment that helps in stabilizing and supporting the thoracic, lumbar, and sacral regions of the spine.
