INSTEAD, INVOTEK WILL CONCENTRATE ON THE MOST COMMON LIFTING SITUATIONS FOR THE MAJORITY OF PATIENTS.

THIS DEVICE WILL SUPPORT THE PATIENT THROUGH AMBULATION TO THE DESIRED DESTINATION, AND PROMPTLY LOWER THE PATIENT BACK TO A SITTING POSITION. IT WILL ALLOW THE CARE-GIVER TO LIFT A PERSON AS TALL AS 6.5 FEET, WEIGHING AS MUCH AS 300 POUNDS, WITH MINIMAL EFFORT. THE PROCESS OF LIFTING, WHICH REQUIRES VERY LITTLE SETUP TIME, WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED WITH A SIMPLE, INTUITIVE CONTROL.
