Children and Small Adult Home Model

The versatile EasyPivot Model EP-81 is designed specifically to fit most children and smaller adults and to "grow with them." We've optimized the design of the Model EP-81 for low cost and high durability - including molded foam upholstery, a three-setting wheelbase, and a unique dual-position stop lock. The Model EP-81 uses the same frame as the Model EP-82 but has a shorter arm between the chest pad and pivot bolt. This is to accommodate a smaller person's shorter torso. To accommodate children with shorter legs, a multi-position foot base is available as an option. The EP-81 can be retrofitted with Model EP-82 parts as the user grows. The Model EP-81 will pass through a 26" wide opening.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is the Model EP-81 different from the Model EP-82?
The Model EP-81 is specifically designed for shorter individuals. Most importantly, it has a shorter link between chest pad and column pivot point to accommodate a smaller torso. This patient lift also has a smaller (13" by 6") chest pad and a shorter thigh strap. Both the Model EP-81 and the Model EP-82 utilize the same base and column.
 
  1. How does the optional adjustable elevating foot base attach to the Model EP-81?
    Two bolts hold the adjustable elevating foot base to this patient lift. Holes for these bolts are pre-drilled and attachment takes only a few minutes.
     
  2. If the Model EP-81 shares the same frame as the Model EP-82, why does the Model EP-81 have a lower maximum weight capacity?
    We "de-rate" the Model EP-81 maximum weight capacity because of its smaller chest pad and the possibility that it will have an optional elevating foot base attached to it.
     
  3. Can the Model EP-81 be outfitted with the Model EP-82 chest pad?
    Yes. In fact, all of the smaller parts on the Model EP-81 can be replaced by the comparable part of the Model EP-82. Hence, when used with a child, the Model EP-81 can grow with the child.
     
    A common "parts switch" is to specify the Model EP-81 with a short chest link and with the Model EP-82 chest pad. This is done in the case of individual has a relatively fully developed torso but short, undeveloped legs - as sometimes happens with individuals who have never walked.
     
  4. I plan to use the Model EP-81 with a child who has cerebral palsy. Are there special concerns or considerations?
    Cerebral palsy often presents a challenge to using the EasyPivot. Unlike when using a sling-type lifting mechanism, the individual's frame is involved in the transfer process.
     
    There is concern regarding both an individual's "tone" and range-of-motion. Generally, higher-tone individuals are more difficult to transfer using the EasyPivot.
     
    The concern with range-of-motion relates to contractures. Whether the contracture is from shortened tendons or is an actual "bone"-based limitation, one should ascertain that the individual has sufficient range to bend to the extent the EasyPivot requires. A physical therapist or occupational therapist can often determine whether the EasyPivot is applicable for a given client.
     
  5. Tone sometimes causes my client's foot to move from the foot base. How can this be prevented?
    See our accessories for heel loops, toe loops and other special items. The two heel plates on the Model EP-81 may be removed by removing two nuts from the bottom of the foot base. Special foot plates can be provided at your request.

    Some customers have reported that they attach an old "tennis shoe" to the foot plate and place their child's foot in it for transfers. This may be especially helpful if the foot tends to roll onto its side.
     
  6. The person being transferred using the EasyPivot has a large abdomen and his/her knees do not engage the knee pad. What can we do?
    Knee pad spacers can be provided. They bolt between the knee pad attachment bars and the knee pads themselves. Increments of 1 inch are available.
     
  7. The person being transferred using the EasyPivot has Harrington rods attached to his/her spine. Should we use the EasyPivot?
    You should first consult your therapist and orthopedist. There are hundreds of spine fixations. Some provide flexibility for the EasyPivot and some do not.
     
  8. How do I adjust the elevating foot base?
    There are two "quick pins" that engage holes in the foot base support rods. Simply pull the pins, adjust the foot base, and then re-place the pins.
     
  9. Can the EasyPivot be used with an eternal feeding tube?
    Many people use EasyPivot with feeding tubes. The chest pad presses on the upper ribcage and not on the stomach area. Try to allow an increment of time after feeding before using the EasyPivot.

Back Lift Strap - Specify S, M, L or XL
The Back Lift Strap is used to assist an individual to sit upright from a prone position. It is useful for individuals who cannot be pulled upright by pulling on their arms. This includes persons with weak, painful, or subluxated shoulders - such as the shoulders of a spinal cord injured quadriplegic of level C-4 or higher. The Back Lift Strap fastens around the individual's upper chest with a hook-and-loop fastener. A padded support is positioned at the individual's upper back and two nylon pull straps are placed over the individual's shoulders. The helper can then pull on the two pull straps in the same manner as one might pull on the individual's arms; however, the tension of pulling is borne by the nylon strap instead of the individual's shoulders. When used with the EasyPivot, the Back Lift Strap helps a smaller-framed caregiver to transfer a larger-framed person. The caregiver positions himself or herself against the EasyPivot and pulls on the Back Lift Strap handles. As the individual sits up, he or she can be guided to lean against the EasyPivot's chest pad. Once sitting stability is gained, the EasyPivot's Back Lift Strap can then be fastened around the individual and the Back Lift Strap removed. Caution: The Back Lift Strap should not be used to lift or suspend an individual in the air. Check the individual's skin in areas that the Back Lift Strap touches. If pressure causes redness or abrasion, pad that area as needed or discontinue use.
