More than 20
years ago, Molift’s founder and inventor, the engineer and
designer Hans Kasper Andresen, was hospitalised for a long period.
And it was there, in his hospital bed, that he got the idea. Hans
Kasper, among friends and colleagues only known as Kappern, quickly
understood how much strain to their backs, shoulders and arms nurses
suffered when lifting or moving men, quite often big and heavy.
Surrounded by sketches jotted down on napkins, scraps of newspapers
and magazines, he transformed his idea into what was to become the
world’s first battery-powered personal lifter. Kappern’s
wife, who is a physiotherapist, provided valuable information about
lifting techniques, the strain and injuries wrong lifting can lead
to and the importance that lifts are performed so as to avoid aggravating
the patient’s condition. Ever since the first Molift lifter
was developed, this has indeed been our basic idea: we develop products
with functions that copy the body’s natural movement pattern
to the largest possible extent.
Today, 20 years later, we are still searching for ideas for unique functions
and solutions for our products. What is most important to us is to create
products that help improving people's everyday life - products that are
Designed for Life.
The Molift head Office is in Oslo, Norway. Molift lifters and Molift Recliners are produced in Gjøvik/Norway, Molift Transfer System in Gausdal/Norway and Molift Beds in Svartå/Sverige.
Molift is established in Norway, Sweden, England and the USA. The US division of Molift Inc was founded in 2003. Molift
makes very strict requirements to quality and functional solutions
to all products – and also aims to provide the best service
in the market to our customers and users. Our aim is that all our
products will do more than satisfy all national and international
standards and regulations; several of our products also carry a guarantee for up to 5 years when service is taken care of by a certified servicepartner or by our own Molift Inc certified technician.
