All caregivers must watch training video before attempting to utilize the Binder Lift. Although very simple to use, there are necessary skills to understand prior to using these devices on your patients. We strongly urge you to first lift a fellow team member before putting to use in the field. Although the Binder Lift is designed to enable you to utilize good lifting ergonomics, it is important that each lifter is in sufficient physical condition to be able to conduct a patient lift with proper ergonomics. Binder Lift LLC recommends you consult your physician prior to the use of our device.
