Product Details

The Mawson is a unique, innovative electric leg lifter that is ideal for bed-to-bed use in a care home, nursing home or community hospital. The Mawson can be easily wheeled from one bed to another for quick and straightforward use. If the patient is using a hospital bed, it will wheel under the bed frame to allow the legs to be flush with the side of the bed facilitating an effortless transfer in and out of bed. This design feature removes the need of equipment such as a bed lever, giving the carer easy access and the patient more freedom to move in bed. This mobile leg lifter has a pad height of 15” (38cm) and length of 30” (76cm). The standard Mawson can hold up to 25 stone (158 kilos) with a bariatric version available that has a maximum weight limit of 30 stone (317 kilos).

One possible problem that could occur with mobile leg lifters is the risk of its wheels moving, putting the patient and carer at risk of injury. This is not an issue for the Mawson that has braked wheels to ensure its stability when transferring keeping the leg lifter secure and in place. The patient and carer can be confident when using the Mawson that they are both safe and supported when the braked wheels are locked in. For extra security the Mawson can be used in conjunction with a removable hoop for the patient hold onto for added reassurance when transferring.

When using a plug-in leg lifter, there are some key issues can occur. The most noticeable issue is regarding the space restrictions; a plug-in leg lifter is limited in use and will have to be a plug socket and even when close enough to a socket could be obstructed by other equipment. Another potential problem when using plug-in leg lifters is the trailing wires that can obstruct and possible trip carers or patients up. The Mawson operates using a rechargeable battery pack meaning it does not have to be near a plug socket to work, it also means that there are trailing wires that could possibly trip someone and cause injury.
