Zero lift demo is designed to illuminate the leverage aspect of No Lift transfers. It clearly demonstrates how a small caregiver can transfer a larger patient without lifting, twisting or straining. The caregiver uses their own weight to offset the patients weight to a neutral position where the swivel carries the rotational loads protecting the patient’s lower extremities from injuries resulting from twisting. This is not a basic technique and is used more for demonstration purposes although it could be used with a person with good upper body strength. Uses swivel and gait belt.
