The first compact, portable, and most importantly, affordable, fall-recovery and transfer lift platform that can be used and stored almost anywhere.
Two of the most common problems suffered by mobility-limited individuals (such as those bound to a wheelchair, the elderly, or the obese) are recovering from a fall to the floor/ground, and transferring between seating surfaces of varying heights. The solutions to both of these problems currently rely on either the help from other people to physically lift them, or the use of “crane” or “track” style lifting systems that are exceedingly expensive and unaffordable to most, large and cumbersome, and comparatively immobile as they are mounted systems meant for hospitals, nursing homes, or more “industrial” types of use.
