Patient lifts are a type of assistive device that is used to safely transfer patients. They can be portable or ceiling lifts. They are usually used to transfer individuals between a bed, a chair, or other similar places. Patient lifts usually require slings.

They are used to bridge two surfaces for easier transport. This allows patients to move to a bed or chair without using their legs.
