Transportability and patient comfort go hand-in-hand
With maximum space for the user, both the Invacare Birdie and the Birdie Compact offer a truly comfortable lift and transfer to or from beds, chairs or even the floor. The lifters are designed to ensure that folding and unfolding can be carried out easily and without the need for tools. In addition, the lifter can be dismantled into two parts if needed – also without tools.
Total user comfort
The high boom maximizes space for the client even when the hoist is in the highest position. This gives an ergonomic lift and transfer as the client can be easily rotated in the hoist. This makes placing the client into a bed/wheelchair much easier for the carer. The optimization of space creates a reduction in risk of injury as the client's knees will not be close to the actuator of the hoist.
Ease of handling: simple to fold,
unfold and dismantle without tools
Handling the lifter has been made as smooth and easy as possible as the hoist
can easily be folded and unfolded without
the need for tools. The Birdie takes up minimal space when stored and is easy to push and transport. If required, the mast and boom can be easily detached from the base (no tools required).
TÜV-certification for maximum security
For total security, the hoists come with a snap-lock system, thus minimizing the risk of accident. The lifters are CE-certified in line with the Medical Device Directive 93/42/ECC. To ensure the hoists comply with EN ISO 10535 (the European standard for hoists) the hoist has been rigorously tested both by Invacare and the German TÜV institute, an accredited external body.
