1990s

Prism P 300

Prism Medical Ltd, the parent company of Waverley Glen Systems (WGS), introduced the ceiling lift to North America and pioneered the development of modern ceiling lift technology. Prism Medical addressed a significant challenge in healthcare facilities: preventing musculoskeletal injuries caused by patient lifting, transferring, and repositioning. This is particularly crucial because lifting patients is the primary cause of work-related injuries among nursing personnel. As a strong supporter of the “minimal lift” standard, Prism Medical dedicated itself to lowering costs associated with healthcare worker and client injuries and providing solutions to meet facility's needs.
