Personal Human Floor Lifts (HFL’s)
Personal Human floor lifts are designed to lift people from the floor to a to a normal chair height, allowing them to stand or transfer with the least amount of effort.
The IndeeLift family of HFL’s 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.
The HFL will lift a person to it’s rated capacity from the floor to a position seated at the height of a standard chair. With the maximum height of 21 inches (54 cm) 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 is designed to be mobile and is easily rolled to any place in the home. It’s compact nature allows it to be stored in typical closet like you would a vacuum. Whether a fall occurs in the hallway, a bedroom, bathroom or a living room, this appliance can be easily rolled over to the person who has fallen for immediate assistance getting up from the floor.
Small Footprint and Easy Portability
The HFL is a portable lift that is rolled around similar 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.
Mounting Ramp Seat
The HFL patented 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.
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-300 comes standard with a lithium ion battery pack and an AC charger with cord that can be plugged into any standard 110V US and 240V EU outlet.

Mom and Dad live together and one of them starts to fall and is unable to get up on their own. As they age together Mom and Dad are not able to pick each other up. When one of them falls they have to get help from outside of the home. Family, neighbors, friends and emergency services aka the fire department have to be called for assistance. Sometime later, help arrives to pick the fallen person up from the floor. Many times the fallen are injured more by lifting them than from the actual fall. More often than not, more than one strong person is required to get the fallen up. This process can take a long time leaving the fallen uncomfortably stuck.
Individuals living at home alone or “aging in place” have few good options when they have fallen and need help getting up. Friends, relatives, and neighbors can become overburdened with requests and a call to emergency services can result in a loss of privacy and personal dignity. It is also common for helpers to become injured while assisting the fallen individual.
“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.
With the HFL, after a fall, mom, dad or a helper rolls the IndeeLift directly over to whoever has fallen, who then scoots onto the seat. 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.
Independence, privacy and dignity are maintained along without having to bother anyone else with such a personal issue! The IndeeLift HFL turns what is often a harrowing, drawn-out and horribly uncomfortable experience into a private easily-recoverable non-event!

Aging folks whether alone or as couples with a desire to stay in the comfort of wherever they call home, who are mobile but have difficulty getting up after a fall.
