Mawson – Transportable Leg Lifter

Product Code: MAW

The Mawson is a transportable, electric leg lifter that can be wheeled from bed to bed allowing multi use, ideal within in a community care home setting.

If used in combination with a profiling bed the Mawson Leg Lifter will sit adjacent to the frame of the bed, thus supporting a patient to transfer their legs in and out of bed. The Mawson promotes independence.

The Mawson will also greatly reduce the need for manual handling and therefore also minimise the risk of injury for nurses and carers.




Product Details

The Mawson is a unique, innovative electric leg lifter that is ideal for bed-to-bed use in a care home or nursing home. The Mawson can be easily wheeled from one bed to another for quick and straightforward use. If the patient is using a profiling bed, it will sit adjacent to 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 secure, braked wheels to ensure its stability when transferring keeping the leg lifter stable and in the correct 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.
