Invacare Reliant 450 Patient Lift Overview
Invacare Reliant 450 Battery-Powered Lift assists caregivers with difficult patient transfers to prevent injury to both caregiver and user. This item supports patients who weight up to 450 pounds and has an extensive lift height range. This range allows this product to be used from ground up to high places. This Hoyer Lift is made of durable steel and comes with two model choices. The first choice offers a power lift with a standard low base. The other choice offers the addition of a power opening low base feature for ease of use. The powered low base makes opening the legs a painless process.
This Mobility Aid is built for patient safety. A wide-leg footprint maximizes stability, particularly for bariatric patients. These legs slide underneath the user's bed to get this patient lift as close to the patient as possible. The Reliant 450 Patient Lift also offers a padded swivel bar that rotates 360 degrees for additional support and easy positioning. In addition to these features, an anti-entrapment feature is integrated into this machine. Next, this item's height range and ability to reach the floor is especially useful in the event of a patient fall. Finally, totes an ergonomic design that includes a push handle positioned to reduce caregiver wrist strain.
This item comes with everything needed to keep it powered at all times. A wall-mounted charger holds a second back-up battery (included) for easy and convenient charging and so that a battery can always be in rotation. This is a very used feature in the case of a power outage. In addition, when a charge is needed, a low battery alarm sounds. The Reliant 450 Power Lift operates for 150 to 300 lifts per charge.
This patient lift has been tested for safety and can increase the safety of both patients and caregivers during transfers.
Invacare also manufactures a heavy-duty lift with a higher lifting capacity called the Reliant 600. There is also a stand-up lift to help patients transition from a sitting positoin to standing called the Get-U-Up.

How to Transfer a Patient from a Bed to a Wheelchair
- Read this product's user manual's full list of warnings and safety instructions.
- Ensure that the battery has charge.
- Roll the patient onto the sling according to the sling's manufacturer's instructions and facility guidelines.
- Move the wheelchair near the end of the bed for a quick and fluid transfer.
- Lock the wheelchair's wheels.
- Open the legs of the lift and lock them.
- Ensure that there is nothing blocking the space under the bed.
- Roll the hoyer to the bed so the legs are underneath the bed and the hanger bar is positioned over the patient (over their chest and abdominal area).
- Press the down arrow on the lift remote control to lower the hanger bar over the patient so the sling hooks can be attached to the hanger bar.

- Press the down arrow to lower the patient into the wheelchair.
