eUlift is an Erasmus+ project (2016-2019) which provides a full training in patient handling for caregivers and for trainers.
As a theoretical framework, an e-book was developed with full explanation concerning general ergonomics, anatomy, biomechanics, general causes of back pain, pathology, pain education, postures, natural movement, basic postures and movements and basic care tasks. All illustrated with pictures.
3D animations in the app
Our avatars Nina (caregiver) and Jacob (patient) demonstrate all techniques.
With the 3D animations you can rotate until you have the angle of your preference (f.e. have a closer look at the position of the feet), you also have the option to pause, go 3sec forwards or backwards.
Basic postures and movements are documented with animations in the app as well.
In the app the Banner Mobility Assessment Tool guides you through the patients mobility and leads to a customized 3D animation of a patient handling technique. The use of this validated assessment is an added value to any care facility to improve patient safety.
Once you know your patients mobility level, you can immediately go the patient handling trainer to choose the transfer you need and watch the 3D animation.
All animations are short, detailed and provided with keypoints.
The app is easy to use and developed to be used in practice.
At our website: https://eulift-app.com/ you can find a full train-the-trainer manual with didactics, learning outcomes and tips in how to implement the tool in your practice.
This free app is financed by Epos (Erasmus+ Flanders), is developed with partners in 5 European countries and comes in 4 languages (English/Dutch/Spanish/Hungarian). Our partners are: VIVES University College of Applied Sciences, Belgium; AZ Alma, Belgium; Nordic Health, Netherlands; Athlon, Spain; David, Finland; David, Hungary and Securex, Belgium.
