Product Details

A leg lifter that is mobile and truly unique, the Mawson is perfectly suited for multi-use with it being easily wheeled from bed-to-bed, making it appropriate for nursing homes and community hospitals. The Mawson fits flush to the side of a hospital bed enabling the leg lifter to transfer a patient’s legs with little to no effort. This means that the carer will no longer require the use of a bed lever or other equipment to help with transferring.

One of the most important benefits of the Mawson is how it greatly reduces the risk of injury that carers face when having to regularly moving and handling patients. By having to continuously lift patients who are unable to sit up and cannot get in or out of bed, carers can put a heavy strain and high level of pressure on their back that over time can lead to long-term back injuries. This problem is further exacerbated by carrying around a heavy leg lifter from bed to bed. The Mawson resolves these issues, taking the patient’s legs in and out of bed with a straightforward handset and being easy for the carer to move around on its four wheels.

The braked wheels of the Mawson ensure stability for the client, keeping the leg lifter securely in place. The Mawson has a detachable hoop that can be used for the patient to hold onto for added reassurance; this product can also be used in conjunction with the Nile leg lifter for further assistance and support in leg transfers.

The Mawson operates on a rechargeable battery pack meaning that there is not any restriction for where the leg lifter can go. The Mawson’s battery pack means that it has no trailing wires that could potentially trip up and injure patients or carers. This makes the area generally safer and easier for transferring a patient into bed.

The Mawson has a pad height of 15” (38cm), a length of 30” (76cm) and a standard weight limit of 25 stone (158 kilos). A bariatric version with a 50 stone (317 kilos) weight limit is also available.
