The Lumex AireLift System makes it safer and easier to transfer a patient in the prone position. The Lumex AireLift reduces the risk of injury to the highly vulnerable caregiver that may result from patient handling. The Lumex AireLift uses a low pressure air supply combined with a perforated transfer mat to create a cushion of air on which to transfer and reposition the patient. It requires 65% less force and 79% less sustained force than a draw sheet transfer method when used for the transfer of a 415-lb. patient. The system can be used to transfer any patient, regardless of weight. It is easy to set-up and use and is extremely portable.
