Overview

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.


Liko HygieneVest HighBack, model 55

Liko HygieneVest HighBack is the right choice for those who need support to prevent the head from tilting back. Patients who have problems with spasticity should try model 55.

HygieneVest can also be the best choice for severely disabled patients with amputated legs or those who have problems with spasticity (especially mod 55). Patients with very limited trunk stability and poor muscle tone can usually manage lifts with HygieneVest and find it secure and comfortable.
