Versatile lifting assistance
Liko® MasterVest™lift aid, model 60/64, is a versatile lifting aid that facilitates toilet visits, standing training, gait training, mobility training and placing patients into standing positions using aids. The MasterVest aid reduces strain on caregivers while helping them deliver the physical training to meet patient needs.
With MasterVest lift aid, manual lifting and transferring to and from the toilet can be accomplished easily and smoothly, and may reduce severe strain that can result from such routine tasks.
The vest lifts around the upper body and partly under the arms, and is best suited for patients that can support some of their body weight with their legs and feet. A design that leaves the lower body free for dressing and undressing adds to the MasterVest lift aid’s appeal.
Front-fastening MasterVest, model 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 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.
Before lifting, keep the following points in mind
- The upper body narrows during raising, so don’t choose a vest that is too large.
- For additional information on sizing please refer to the product user manual or contact your rep.
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.
As an alternative to MasterVest and for mobilization and activation, we recommend Liko® LiftPants, model 92.
