It’s more fun than a Disney World ride! Seriously, our lifts have cut way back on associate and patient injuries
I like Liko lifts because they help to rehabilitate my patients without hurting them or myself. I can finally perform complicated patient moving and handling tasks with confidence and ease.
Many of our patients on the 6th and 7th surgical floors have expressed their appreciation and gratitude when using the Liko Lifts, What a wonderful asset to the safety of our patients and our associates!
I work in X-Ray and do portables on the floor. I weigh 115 pounds and there is no way I can lift and position an X-ray plate behind a 500+ lb. patient. The lifts help us and the nurses. The nurses stay more cheerful when the patient has a lift and so do we! Everyone is happier and healthier
I was able to help a patient that was a bilateral amputee get from her wheelchair to her car safely and with dignity

We were able to respond to the request of a mom of a child with Muscular Dystrophy to transfer him without “manhandling” him from his wheelchair to the bed for his sleep study. Both mom and patient were happy with his transfer with the Golvo and commented how smoothly it went.

Having the Sabina is like having an extra person to help. She is readily available and always in the mood to assist. This is especially helpful for getting tired patients back to bed in a smooth and secure way.

They are so easy to operate, fun for everyone to use and you still have full use of your back!
I love having the lifts available to help move patients. Especially on nights when there aren’t as many bodies around. It’s like having an extra set of strong hands.
I wish we had them all over the hospital. They really help me when I go up to the floors to do portable x-rays. I usually do not have another tech with me. The Liko Lift saves all of our backs, literally. Not only that but it also makes it easier for me to obtain the perfect X-ray. Because my focus turns to the placement of the cassette instead of rolling, lifting, and pushing the cassette in place. I am sure the patient appreciates the Liko Lift as well. I know if I was sore from being in the hospital I would rather just be lifted once rather than rolled back and forth and pushed and pulled just to get my bedside x-ray done. Maybe with the Liko Lift all the 5 foot 120-140 lb girls in x-ray can keep a job in the hospital without feeling like the need to get a job at Dr’s office/facility or another modality just to save their back – considering a lot of us are still in our 20’s and complaining of new back pain.
