The Drive Deluxe Electric Patient Lift is designed to transfer a patient from one resting position to another. It is not a transport device. Use a sling that is recommended by the individuals physician. During transfer, with patient suspended in a sling to the lift, do not roll caster base over objects such as raised carpet bindings, door frames, or any uneven surfaces that would create an imbalance of the lift. Use steering handles at all times to maneuver the lift.
