Bariatrics have special needs
Liko has long experience in working with overweight patients. For many years we have collaborated closely with several large hospitals in North America which specialise in the care and treatment of bariatric patients. This has made us pioneers in the industry for lift solutions specially adapted for very large patients.
Lifting equipment which can handle heavy loads is not sufficient when working with bariatric patients. Specially adapted lifting accessories and knowledge of how the lift should be performed in the safest possible way are just as important.
Examples of Product Solutions
- Viking XL Mobile Lift
The Viking series consists of several different mobile lifts designed for a range of application areas and maximum loads. Viking L and XL have a lifting capacity of 250 kg (550 lbs) and 300 kg (660 lbs), respectively, and are excellent alternatives for many bariatric patients. As the lifts are made of aluminium, they are relatively easy to manoeuvre - even with heavy loads. Read more about Viking XL »
