The Vision of No-lift NEMT

Our vision is for real people, our friends and family members, to experience a new level of comfort, mobility, and dignity when when being transported for routine medical purposes. Right now, the vast majority of NEMT transports involve unnecessary equipment and procedures for non-emergency situations. These processes actually introduce risk to patients and caregivers alike by requiring patients to be vertically lifted from hospital beds onto gurneys or wheelchairs. Further, these processes require patients to ride in these same gurneys and wheelchairs while traveling in a vehicle, with no reasonable safety measures in place. The use of these processes means that patients involved in even minor accidents can slip out of gurneys and wheelchairs and sustain significant injury.

With specialized tools and techniques, our No-lift NEMT process changes the way caregivers can think about the transport of patients. With the Broda Synthesis v4 Chair, specialized transfer boards, and other tools, facilities and transport companies can move patients more quickly and comfortably and with less staff. The chair’s ability to fully recline allows patients to be transferred laterally, without lifting, for a safer and more comfortable experience. 4-point restraints and tilt-in-space reclining keeps patients well-positioned and eliminates the risk of falling or slipping out of the wheelchair at any point of the transfer process. Securely mounted in a vehicle with a crash-tested restraint system, the WC19-certified and crash-tested Broda® Synthesis Transport wheelchair provides a new level of safety for passengers while in vehicle transport.

The vision of No-lift NEMT is also about efficiency. A transfer from a bed to a vehicle can take place in less than 7 minutes, respecting the time of both patients and caregivers. The No-lift NEMT process also allows ambulances to be replaced by mini-vans, how a 300-pound patient can be easily moved from a bed to a chair and how patients can feel a new level of respect in the methods used to transport them.
