The BestLift™ PL400EF represents a new standard in full body lifts for individuals who travel or have storage issues in their home. It is a unique lifter with a small footprint and foldable design that assembles or folds in 3 simple steps allowing for easy storage or transport. As with all Bestcare lifts, this new Bestcare lifter continues to insure maximum safety and comfort.

Main features:

  • Foldable / Portable / Transportable
  • Smaller and lighter
  • Fits to car trunk
  • 400lb capacity
  • 2 point spreader bar
  • New Bestcare Control system

It's small footprint allows access in tight spaces, especially bathrooms, doorways and hallways. A low 4.5" base height fits under most beds.

Folding Portable Patient Lift
This portable system can be folded down to a compact transportable unit for storage or taking on trips. Complete unit weighs 83 lbs.

Battery Powered
This system operates on a 24VDC rechargeable battery pack that provides about 40% more lifts per charge than competing brands. Optional second battery pack.

Dual User Controls For Greater Reliability
All patient lifting and lowering is performed by push-buttons on either the hand control (pendant) or using the controls provided directly on the control box. This dual control system assures the Lift can be operated in case the hand control is damaged, misplaced, or malfunctions.

Easy Base Opening/Closing
The BestLift PL4000EF includes a foot pedal operated base opening for wheelchair/commode access. Low base height provides maximum stability and fits under most beds.

Designed for both in-home use and nursing home or facility applications.

Sling Compatibility
Works with most 2, 4 or 6-Point Slings.

Safe Patient Transfers
The BestLift PL400EF allows a person to be lifted and transferred safely, with minimum physical effort provided by the caregiver.

Cradle Options
Standard PL400EF includes a 2-Point cradle that can easily handle both 2 and 4 point slings. The optional 6 point cradle can use 2,4, or 6 point slings. We recommend the 6-Point Cradle option for true flexibility with most industry slings. The 6-Point Cradle also prevents the "pinching" effect since the sling straps are spread further apart.
