The aim of the study was to provide ergonomic advice on how to purchase optimal hoists tin a new elderly care hospital. Overhead ceiling lifts, mobile hoists and stand aids were tested in different patient transfer situations. In the user trials, 12 nurses transferred elderly patients with different lifts and estimated their usability and their own strain using the CR-10 scale. A total of 102 usability tests were carried out. Transfer situations were filmed and nurse’s postures were analyzed by the REBA method and transfer time was also measured. In addition, five physiotherapists carried out an expert evaluation.Physical load was minor when using any one of the lifts; the least strenuous load was when using overhead ceiling lifts. Arms and shoulders were more strained than the back. Setting patient’s feet on the footrests of stand aid lifts or removing the footrests of wheelchairs induced the most strenuous work postures for nurses. The average time spent using lifts was 3:21 minutes. There were significant differences in the ease of service and safe usage of overhead ceiling lifts. Mobile hoists differed in the usage of slings and spreader bar, and there were also differences in the movability and adjustability of the base stand aid. Usage of patient lifts decreases the physical load of nurses in transfer situations. The strenuous work postures found in the study can be minimized by ergonomic teaching. Patient lifts should be taken for trial usage in the actual environment before making purchase decisions. The results of this study can be used for the development, purchase and usage of patient lifts.Key words: assistance, ergonomics, usability, patient transfer, hoist HOITOTIEDE 2010, 22 (2), 118–128 Keywords: Finnland ,Suomi,Skandinavien,Europa,Ergonomic,Patient Lifting,Patient Transfer,Ergonomic Patient Handling,potilassiirtojen ergonomia kortti,ergonomiakortti,ergonomiakorttikoulutus,ergonomiakortti koulutus,ergonomiakoulutus,potilassiirtokortti,potilassiirtokorttikoulutus,potilassiirtokoulutus,potilassiirto,potilasnosto,potilas,nosto,sicheres Patienten umlagern,patienten umlagern,Patientenumlagerung,patienten umlagerung,patienten,kranke heben,handhaben,handhabung,bewegen,ohne heben,safe patient handling moving,transfering,Veto-ohjelma,Ergonomiaopetuksen kehittäminen,sosiaali,terveysalan oppilaitoksissa,hankkeessa kehitettiin potilaan liikkumisen,avustamisen ergonomiaopetusta,SOPMAS,Potilassiirtojen Ergonomiakortti®, Kurssi,Opetus,Kasvatus, Valmennus, Suomessa, Ergonomisk Förflyttningskunskap kort®, Kurs,Träning,Preparation,Förberedelse i Finland,Ergonomic Patient Handling Card®, Course, Training,Ergonomische Patientenhandhabungskarte,Kurs,Lehrgang,Ausbildung,Vorbereitung,Schulung, calendar Potilassiirtojen Ergonomiakortti®, Ergonomisk Förflyttningskunskap kort®, Skolning kalender,Ergonomische Patientenhandhabungskarten Kurskalender,Ergonomic services,Ergonomiapalvelut,Ergonomisk servicen, Ergonomische Dienstleistungen,heben,Tailor-made courses,training,lectures,ergonomics,physical strain,patient handling, risk assessment,risk managment,Supervision,assessment of learning outcome by SOPMAS,Tilauskoulutusta,luentojajotka räätälöidään tilaajan tarpeiden mukaan,Aihealueet: ergonomia,fyysinen kuormitus,potilassiirrot,riskin arviointi,riskin hallinta, oppimistulosten arviointi SOPMAksella,Työnohjaus ja mentorointi,Utbildning,foreläsningar,ergonomi,fysisk belastning,patient transfer,riskbedömning och -härskning,Supervision,Massgeschneiderten kurs,lehrgang,ausbildung,schulung,vorlesung,ergonomie,physische belastung,patiententransfer,patienten umlagerung,patienten handhabung,risikoeinschätzung,risikoverwaltung,beurteilung desTrainingresultats,SOPMAS,Betreuung.
