THE EASY LEG TURNER – LEG LIFTER
Simple but brilliant, this leg lifter allows a carer to safely raise a person’s legs and swivel them into or out of bed – all in a matter of seconds.
The Easy Leg Turner allows single carers to maintain patient/client comfort by supporting the patient’s legs while raising their feet to swivel them into bed or onto a sofa. Designed for safe and easy use, the manual leg lifter is comfortable to sit on and slippery to enable easy turning. The patient only requires upper sitting balance for a few seconds while the carer rotates their legs. When not in use, carers can roll up the leg lifter and store it in the easy carry bag.
The leg lifter has a Safe Working Load (SWL) of 100kg (15.74 stone) and can be used with a hoist. Hospital Direct also stocks extension straps, which carers can attach to the leg lifter to prevent having to bend down when manoeuvring patients/clients.
The Easy Leg Turner is fully washable. Hospital Direct also manufactures a wipeclean Deluxe Leg Lifter as an alternative solution.
Please view the images and attached instructions to see how the leg lifter can be used. If you need further advice about the Easy Leg Turner or Hospital Direct’s range of leg lifters, please get in touch with our Technical Team. We will be delighted to help.
