The vest section firmly supports the upper body during transfer, while a generous opening around the buttocks leaves the lower body free for dressing and undressing during toilet visits. Intended for sit-to-sit lifting, the vest facilitates both transfers to the toilet and positioning in a wheelchair with its upright posture. Since it does not enclose the buttocks, the HygieneVest is ideal for lifting to and from molded seats and close-fitting wheelchairs.
Liko® HygieneVest™ HighBack, model 55
Liko HygieneVest HighBack is a good choice for those who need support to prevent the head from tilting back. Model 55 is recommended for patients who have problems with spasticity.
HygieneVest can also be a good choice for severely disabled patients with amputated legs or those who have problems with spasticity (especially model 55). Patients with very limited trunk stability and poor muscle tone can usually manage lifts with HygieneVest and find it secure and comfortable.
Liko HygieneVest is made from green polyester fabric. The leg supports are reinforced and lined with soft corduroy fabric, which enhances comfort and reduces slipping. Liko HygieneVest models 50/55 are also available as Teddy HygieneVest models 50/55 in our own teddy-patterned soft polyester fabric, size XS, XXS for children.
