Title: BED SHEET LIFT SYSTEM
Abstract:
The present invention includes a bed sheet having one or more features to accommodate a user's grasp whereby to assist the user in safely lifting a patient with the bed sheet. The invention further includes a hoist system configured to raise and lower the bed sheet via the one or more features to accommodate a user's grasp. The one or more grasping features of the bed sheet may include handles that are secured to the bed sheet using an integrated webbing that allows the bed sheet to be used to transport patients from one location to another, such as from a gurney to a hospital bed. An integrated webbing of the bed sheet strengthens an interface between handles and a top portion of the bed sheet so that patients of substantial weight can be transported via the bed sheet.
