New Liko Multiple Purpose Lifting Straps Facilitate Patient Care Tasks
Date:5/27/2008

FRANKLIN, Mass., May 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Liko, a leading supplier of patient lifting equipment, has introduced the Multi-Strap(TM) product line, a series of innovative multi-purpose handling straps designed to assist caregivers with a variety of patient care tasks.

The new the Multi-Strap product line consists of a highly functional set of aids designed to significantly reduce often-overlooked repetitive daily physical tasks incurred by healthcare caregivers including lifting limbs, turning patients, and holding patients in side-lying -- while simultaneously providing better patient care.

In use, the Multi-Strap can help improve the ability of, and productivity among, caregivers to perform their tasks, as well as improve the overall quality of care for patients. Caregivers using the new Multi-Strap are able to improve patient care during wound dressing changes, skin care treatments, and other medical procedures. Such procedures can be both difficult -- due to poor accessibility or problems with holding the patient or limb -- as well as time consuming. When used in conjunction with existing Liko overhead or mobile lifts, the Multi-Strap may also reduce the number of caregivers required to perform certain tasks.

Multi-Strap products are offered in a variety of sizes from narrow to ultra, in both polyester and disposable materials. All feature a pocket to assist the caregiver with application solutions. An additional fix clip is included with a buckle for easy attachment of a strap to the bed for turning.

Typical applications include:

-- Limb Lifting and Holding -- There are multiple applications for

Multi-Strap use across various departments. In burn units, the

Multi-Strap Narrow can suspend a limb with limited skin contact. For

the initial insertion or -reinsertion of a catheter for a patient of

size, one Multi-Strap Ultra can help support each leg and eliminate the

need for additional caregivers.

-- Turning/Holding -- Caregivers can also use the Multi-Strap for various

tasks such as turning and/or holding in side-lying position. The

Multi-Strap family can easily enable a single caregiver to handle such

tasks such as turning a patient, inserting wedge pillows, providing

backside wound management, or changing linens and repositioning sheets.

Other uses include assisting caregivers with aerating the bed, or the

simple application or removal of a seated sling or supine stretcher

frame. Use of the Multi-Strap can also assist x-ray technicians with

inserting and removing an x-ray cartridge for various bedside

procedures (chest, abdominal, lateral hip, etc.)
