The Liftmate is a new invention making some serious buzz in the healthcare space, in particular for its ability to assist people living with disabilities. The Liftmate is a very convenient device that helps lift people with mobility issues from place to place. The Liftmate is lightweight and is very versatile. You can use it to help your loved one get out of bed, get in the car, and conveniently position them for cleaning and changing.
The Liftmate is practical, safe, and affordable. The Liftmate consists of two parts which includes a base that weighs 25 pounds and a top section that weighs 8 pounds. The Liftmate can perform a seat to seat function that is used when getting in and out of a car, bed, or wheelchair. You can even go from a seated position to a standing position since this creative device gives ample torso and butt support. There is even a chest lift option that allows for toileting and clothes changing. The Lifemate also folds up allowing for easy transport.

While this is currently a hardware only solution, I would encourage software engineers reading this website to consider possible software solutions that could also contribute in the healthcare space. Sometimes simple ideas could make a huge difference in someones life.
