Clear, practical advice on daily living equipment
Powered leg lifters attach to the bed frame and have a powered raising platform. The platform raises through a right angle, lifting your legs to a horizontal position level with the mattress. When the platform is raised, you can slide your legs off the platform and onto the bed. Some of the devices use a compressor to fill an air sack, which, as it inflates, raises the platform. They are controlled by a handset, which either has two separate switches for up and down or a rocker switch.
