Human Floor Lift (HFL-400)
The HFL-400 is designed to meet the requirements of business and home users up to 400 pounds. These human floor lifts are designed to lift people from the floor to a normal chair height allowing them to stand or transfer with the least amount of effort.
Staff can roll the HFL right to the location of the fall. The HFL-400 is similar to a household vacuum to move around and store. The smallest individual can assist anyone up to 400 pounds from the floor. One party can assist any other party by rolling the unit to the fallen person and assist in mounting on to the seat. The fallen or the assistant activates the lift and the person is raised without injury to either person.
The HFL-400 is a purpose-built appliance designed to allow mobility challenged individuals greater independence by turning a very difficult and dangerous situation into a non-event and allowing them to continue their day after a fall without calling on family, friends, neighbors or emergency services personnel just to get up from the floor, while suffering the indignity and pain associated with recovering from falls without the IndeeLift!
The HFL truly helps mobility challenged individuals regain and maintain their independence, privacy and dignity by allowing them to get up from the floor without outside assistance.
Business/Personal Human Floor Lifts
The HFL-400 is designed to meet the requirements of business and home users up to 400 pounds. Whether at home or in a multi-residential living or care facility, like a senior apartment complex or trailer park that has elderly and/or disabled residents, these human floor lifts are designed to lift people from the floor to a normal chair height allowing them to stand or transfer with the least amount of effort.
The IndeeLift family of HFLs are designed to meet the recommendations of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The raised-seat height is based on the need to stand with minimal effort for the mobility challenged, whether elderly, disabled, injured or in rehabilitation. Direct transfer is accomplished by setting the seat 1-2 inches above the wheelchair allowing lift-free sliding on to most wheelchairs or even a gurney.
The HFL-400 will lift a person up to 400 pounds from the floor to a position seated at the height of a standard chair. At 21″ height with rise-assist handle grips, the HFL allows just about anyone using it to stand with the absolute least expended energy and load on the extremities. The HFL-400 is designed to be mobile and is easily rolled to any place in the home. Whether a fall occurs in a common area, hallway, bathroom, private office or a living room, this appliance can be easily rolled to the person who has fallen for immediate assistance getting up from the floor.
Small Footprint and Easy Portability
The HFL-400 is a portable lift that is rolled around similar in size to your average vacuum. The small footprint allows it to be positioned in many places other lifts simply cannot go. With a small radius, the HFL can go just about anywhere including most residential and all ADA accessible bathrooms. The HFL-400’s compact size allows it to be stored in linen/utility closets or just out of the way in a common area.
Mounting Ramp Seat
The HFL patent-pending design includes a mounting ramp seat that eliminates the need to ever “lift” manually. With no complex cradles or harnesses to configure, the HFL allows fall recovery to be simple and quick. A person who has fallen can be up from the floor to a normal seating position within moments. A fallen person can either scoot onto the IndeeLift beveled seat, or, if they are unable to scoot, the user can tilt up from a laying position directly onto the seat.
The wired remote has a 6’ (2m) retractile cord allowing the fallen individual to “self-operate” the lift or a caregiver to operate the lift while assisting the care recipient onto the lift as necessary. The wired remote has graphics indicating the up and down functionality. The wired remote is stored on the handle with the hanger clip.
The HFL-400 comes standard with a lithium ion battery pack with an AC charger and power cord that can be plugged into any standard AC power outlet.

A multi-residential living or care facility, like a senior apartment complex or trailer park has elderly and/or disabled residents. Periodically one or another of these residents falls and can not get up without assistance from others. Most facilities limit lifting by staff to 35 or 50 pounds. Residents that fall are always heavier than the limits imposed by policy leaving the staff no option but to call for emergency services.
The fallen resident/patient is up from the floor in minutes. Staff did not have to lift the resident or call for an emergency services dispatch minimizing non-emergency lift-assist dispatches while expediently lifting the fallen from the floor!
“The Human Floor Lift” or HFL was designed to lift a person safely from the floor without causing injury to a caregiver or the person needing help.
The HFL-400 is a purpose-built tool that allows facility staff to assist the fallen by rolling the lift to the fallen individual and assisting the resident on to the seat without lifting. The staff or resident can then operate the lift to raise the them from the floor without any manual lifting by the staff.
Either party activates the lift and a minute later whoever was on the floor is now sitting comfortably, able to take their time recovering from the fall before attempting to stand or transfer to a wheel chair or gurney.
Who is the HFL-400 designed and built for?
Thye HFL-400 is designed for persons up to 400 pounds. This lift is designed to be rugged and support the lifting of large persons in a home and/or business environment.

The physically disabled, injured veterans, victims of accidents with lower extremity issues can all be assisted up from the floor without a call to emergency service personnel.
Folks who are challenged with Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, and other muscular and nerve degenerative disease along with stroke survivors, who may be prone to falling with limited strength and the inability to get up can all be assisted up without further injury to either the fallen person or the assistant.
