Exclusive product launch for Green Trousers The new online retailer has launched the Klip2Lift hoistable clothing range. The range was developed by Occupational Therapy Senior Lecturer Jo-Anne Webb in collaboration with Barbara Ackley from The Disabled Living Centre charity. Jo-Anne noticed the distress that people often suffer when being hoisted in and out of wheelchairs using traditional all-in-one slings. Jo-Anne explained: “This has always been a bugbear of mine. Carers transfer young people from a wheelchair, onto a bed to take their clothes off, then hoist them onto the toilet. “That tends to be too difficult for a lot of carers, so the disabled young person is often just put in a nappy all day, which is incredibly undignified for them.” The new system involves a waistcoat-style jacket which can be worn throughout the day and clipped onto a hoist, along with a pair of leg straps which are detachable and only required for the duration of the transfer. David Lynch, Managing Director of Lynch Healthcare, said: “Green Trousers is our flagship store for disability and care equipment. After having personally been involved in moving and handling equipment for 18 years, I know this product has a great future ahead.” The Klip2Lift range includes a handling jacket for those who are ambulant and hoistable clothing for users who require full hoisting. Lee Daines, Ecommerce Manager of Green Trousers, added: “We’ve had considerable interest for the product so far and we are thrilled to have the range as part of our website offering.” To find out more, visit www.greentrousers.com
