Yorkshire Care Equipment has added LiftUp’s Raizer II to its offering and will distribute the product across the north of England.
In a post on the company’s website, Yorkshire Care Equipment detailed how it has been supplying the Raizer emergency lifting chair to care homes, hospitals, emergency services, and private residences across Scotland and Northern England since 2016.
In 2019, it sold more Raizers than ever before, which led to further research into how the lifting device could be made even better.
Now, the company detailed how it was pleased to launch the new Raizer II.
Steve Ellis, Yorkshire Care’s Raizer specialist, described the process that went into launching a new version of the Raizer:
He said: “We sold hundreds of Raizer lifting devices last year, it’s an incredibly popular piece of kit. Anyone that’s tried it is impressed by how quickly and easily you can get someone back on their feet after a fall.”
Adding: “But, like with any product that offers a completely new solution to a problem, eventually, you start to spot ways it could be made even better. We work closely with our Raizer customers – asking for feedback and checking in on how they get on with the chair over time – and a couple of suggestions kept coming up. For example, users wanted to be able to adjust the seatbelt and they didn’t want to have to colour-match parts for assembly.
“We were able to pass this feedback on to the manufacturers, and other dealerships did the same. It’s this open conversation between us, end-users and the manufacturer that has led to the Raizer II. I think it’s better than ever.”
Commenting on what’s changed with the new product, Yorkshire Care Equipment outlined easier assembly, enhanced infection control, extra support & safety, easier disassembly, easier storage & maintenance and easier transportation as the key improvements.
In November, the company published a children’s book to accompany a new care chair.
