HoverJack® Air Patient Lift
Maximizing Patient Comfort and Safety
The HoverJack Air Patient Lift allows caregivers to safely lift individuals who have fallen with fewer caregivers. The HoverJack consists of four chambers that are inflated to comfortably lift individuals from the floor to a bed or stretcher height.
The HoverJack can be used with the HoverMatt Air Transfer Mattress to provide caregivers a safe and efficient no-lift solution. After the individual has been lifted using the HoverJack, the HoverMatt can safely laterally transfer them to a bed or stretcher.
HT-Air Supply (sold separately) offers two airflow speeds, as well as a variable speed option for a gradual inflation, for patients who are sensitive, anxious and/or in pain. Learn More >
Benefits of the HoverJack Air Patient Lift:
- System Flexibility – Allows use in hard-to-reach areas where floor & ceiling lifts may not be accessible
- Individual Chamber Inflation – Allows caregivers to easily transfer patients to surfaces of varying heights
- High Weight Capacity – Available in two sizes with a 1,200 lbs. weight capacity
Facilitates Movement Across all Surfaces
The HoverJack has a Teflon coated bottom that makes it easy to move across all surfaces. This is helpful when a stretcher or a bed is not nearby.
Frequently Asked Questions
The HoverJack has a weight limit of 1,200 lbs.
No, not if you are using the HoverTech International Air Supply. The HoverJack Devices have been tested under conditions that would “over-inflate” using this air supply.
No. The HoverJack Devices are made to be stable regardless of how many chambers are inflated. However, the chambers MUST be inflated consecutively from the floor up. Each chamber should be fully inflated before inflating the next chamber.
There is not an exact answer regarding the HoverJack except that there are many factors that can affect the life expectancy. In the HoverJack’s favor is the fact that it isn’t laundered and is used less frequently than a HoverMatt. Please refer to the HoverJack User Manual for full cleaning & maintenance instructions.
HoverTech International is registered with the FDA. The HoverJack is listed as a Class II exempt device.
