The ambulation arm is used for supporting a patient that is wearing a Vancare ambulation sling. This gives the patient an added sense of security adding to more positive outcomes. The arms also serve the function of giving the caregiver added leverage to move and turn the lift when it is heavy and difficult to move. This will help to reduce back strains. One other function is to allow the patient to hold on to them during transport, which gives the patient added stability and a sense of security. The arms are available on all Vanderlift II series and the VanGo.
