Liko HygieneVest is designed for safe lifting to and from the toilet. The sitting posture is almost fully upright. In terms of function and safety, HygieneVest provides unique advantages and works well in complicated problem situations, for instance, for patients with poor muscle tone.
HygieneVest has a vest section which surrounds and firmly supports the upper body during lifting. A generous opening around the buttocks leaves much of the lower body free for dressing and undressing during the lifting operation in connection with toilet visits.
Liko HygieneVest is intended for sit-to-sit lifting. The upright sitting posture facilitates lifts to the toilet and positioning in a wheelchair. Since the HygieneVest does not enclose the buttocks, it is ideal for lifting to and from moulded seats and close-fitting wheelchairs.
The leg supports are padded with soft corduroy fabric.
