Easily Lift, Transfer and Reposition Patients with Ground-Breaking Liftaem(TM) System from Smart Medical Technology, Inc.

DARIEN, Ill., Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The Liftaem(TM) safe-patient- handling system enables healthcare professionals to easily transfer a patient from a bed to a stretcher or other surface on a single-patient-use inflatable mat -- even when the patient weighs up to 1,000 lbs. It's the only product of its kind featuring single-patient-use mats to prevent cross-contamination -- a priority in health care.

"Our vision is to develop culture-changing innovations to better manage and monitor healthcare environments," states Smart Medical Technology Chairman and CEO James Patrick. "We believe therapy and safety should always share the same platform."

The inflatable mats are placed on the patients' beds when they are admitted and remain with them for the duration of their stay. Carts used for inflation are placed throughout the hospital in areas with high numbers of patient transfers.

Smart Medical Technology developed the Liftaem(TM) to address the serious problems associated with manually lifting, transferring and repositioning patients, including:

-- Nurses lose a combined average of 750,000 work days each year as a

result of back injury, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor


-- Patients may suffer pain, skin tears, abrasions, dislocations, tube

dislodgement or even be dropped.

Liftaem(TM) has applications in areas such as bariatrics, maternity wards, operating rooms, intensive care and long-term care facilities.
