Living Aids Equipment Hire

We strive to protect the safety of patients and to provide relevant information to staff quickly with our solutions, which are suitable for hospitals, aged care institutions, and private homes.

Nursing staff and caregivers are kept informed of patient movement using Proximate Nurse Call’s motion detection technology. Various pressure-relieving gadgets, beds, and chairs can be fitted with them.

Providing a safe and supportive environment for the patient while they sleep, our roll-out beds help define sleeping arrangements.

By empowering nurses, we set the standard for early detection and prevent falls and injuries.

Mattresses that are low to the ground can mean the difference between a minor trauma and serious injury. Patients may be able to get on and off their beds with assistance from our beds.

The training and guidance that we provide on appropriately using our goods will benefit patients as well as extend the life of the equipment.
