The Lumex Stand Assist Transport is to get Mom from and to the chair, the bed, the couch and the toilet. The Hi Fortune Patient Lift can do all that as well as get Mom up from the floor.
If the Mom can pull herself up from a sitting position then the best budget patient transport is the Lumex Stand Assist. This is the transport device with the cushy built-in seat that makes moving up to a 400 lb. person relatively easy for the caregiver.
If Mom is stuck on the floor, unable to even sit up, then the Hi-Fortune Patient Lift is the right one to use. This transport includes the carrying sling, locking casters, and lifts 450 lb.

How to Choose a Patient Transport
- Is your patient unable to get up from a chair, even with a standing assistance device? (see sit-stand devices here, opens in new window). You can get the budget Lumex option.
- Are you lifting the patient from the floor? You should get the electric Hi Fortune option.
If your patient cannot get herself onto the transport, or you are picking her up from the floor, then you need Hi-Fortune patient transport with hydraulic lift.
If she can get herself up from a sitting to standing position (by herself or with help), and you are not worried about getting her up from the floor, then you can get a Lumex patient transport.
Use a Lumex for Semi-Mobile Patients
The Lumex 1600LF is the transport with padded seat and knees. The seat opens to allow the patient inside. It closes to keep her inside the frame.
Caregivers like using the Lumex more than a wheelchair for bathroom trips. The Lumex is 25 in. at its widest width, which is much easier on doorways than most wheelchairs.
For the quality, the Lumex is less money than its competitors. Caretakers use it with Parkinson’s, neurological diseases, stroke and surgery patients.
Because the Lumex puts the patient in a quasi-standing position with support at the knees and back, caretakers use it for keeping their patients upright during washcloth bathing.

It’s hard to find a better transport, especially for the price. The Lumex puts a cage around the patient, and allows her to lean at both the knees and seat for a more comfortable experience. View the Lumex at Amazon using the button below.
Use the Hi-Fortune Transports for Immobile Patients and for Floor Recovery
The Hi-Fortune transport not only lifts the patient without assistance using a hydraulic motor, its arm bends low enough to rescue a patient who has fallen on the floor.
This is the transport that can lift up to 450 lb. and a pedal-control to widen and narrow the distance between the legs.
It runs on a rechargeable battery, so you leave it plugged in when not in use. It comes standard with a large nylon lifting sling. The legs fit under almost all beds, and the rear casters lock for stability.
Customers rate it as very easy to use, even on carpet. Caretakers use it with patients who have had surgery, who are weak and atrophied, and who have had strokes or other neurological impairments.
The Hi-Fortune is a high-quality hydraulic lift at a low price compared to others that sometimes do not include the sling in the base cost.
