61 million adults in the United States live with a disability. 26 percent (one in 4) of adults in the United States

have some type of disability. The percentage of people living with disabilities is highest in the South meaning 

they require help with changing and using the toilet. When a hospital doesn't have a lift hoist , disabled people

may struggle to move or visit their family and friends. This is unacceptable, and not only puts their daily life at

difficulty but can leave them isolated.

In the US about 33% of nurses with lift equipment available frequently used the lift equipment to transfer their

patients. Recent surveilance from US National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health Occupational Safely

injuries rates for non-use of equipment versus use.
