Liko MasterVest is a versatile lifting aid and an excellent help for toilet visits, standing training, gait practice mobility training and putting children in to standing tables.
MasterVest allows you to achieve objectives that are often difficult to reconcile, namely:
- giving the patient the physical training he or she needs while at the same time
- helping caregivers and nursing staff to avoid injuring themselves.
Severe strain injuries often result from manual lifting and transferring to and from the toilet. With MasterVest, this type of transfer can be accomplished easily and smoothly, while at the same time leaving the lower body free for dressing and undressing.
MasterVest lifts around the upper body and partly under the arms, a lifting principle that presupposes a certain degree of body stability, since the patient supports some of his/her body weight via the legs and feet.
MasterVest is available in two fabrics, polyester and plastic-coated net (certain sizes only). The plastic-coated net vest has good friction and can be used in a wet environment.
Front-fastening MasterVest, mod. 64
The front-fastening vest, Liko MasterVest model 64, is used in cases where the patient is using MasterVest on his/her own.
The front-fastening MasterVest is equipped with two variable safety clasps that enable tension adjustment and regulation of pressure on the chest.
MasterVest with Leg Harness
The leg harness is commonly used in combination with MasterVest for gait training. It helps to keep MasterVest in place during use.
Recommended especially for
- Toilet visits in combination with an overhead lift.
- Standing, gait and balance training with mobile or overhead lifts.
- Patients who are afraid or risk falling.
- Activation, preferably in combination with Liko Springs.
Before lifting, keep the following points in mind:
The upper body narrows during raising, so don’t choose a vest that is too large. Certain sizes of MasterVest can be specially ordered with removable synthetic sheepskin. Consider a larger size in this case.
