About Us

Emergency care providers deserve more

It all began with the simple belief that emergency care providers deserve equipment that helps them move patients without unnecessarily risking their own health and well-being.

Our Story

Why we started?

MVIMG_20190505_144746_1-1

 

Dan Binder, Inventor of the Binder Lift, had a spark of inspiration in 2012 that led to who we are today — Patient Handling and Safety Experts (PHASE).

In the decade since Dan sat down at the kitchen table with an old sewing machine and remnant fabric to make a patient lifting solution for his EMT-I wife, Julie, we have helped over 3,000 first response agencies across the globe improve patient care and avoid personnel injuries from patient movement — and we want to help your agency have the same success.

We help emergency care providers avoid injuries where they happen most by supplying equipment and training to help them have longer, healthier careers. All the products and services we offer are science-backed solutions that help you safely move patients of any size — Safely and Easily.

PHASE is a family-owned business that brings our family values to the workplace. We haven’t lost sight of our first mission — to keep family safe while caring for others. While it may sound cliché, we approach every customer interaction the same. When you do business with us, you’re more than a customer. You’re family. So, let’s connect. We look forward to helping you.
