The Levigait helps reduce the number and the severity of unexpected variables during the lifting process. When you eliminate most of the variables, you can eliminate most of the injuries!
A large majority of patient lifting injuries occur due to unexpected or exaggerated load shifting during the lifting/movement process. Each extra variable makes a lift more difficult.
Large or heavy patient size, lack of tension in lifting before or during the movement, slow reaction time by caregivers, poorly designed makeshift lifting devices, and unusual or unsound lifting positions.
