  • What is a Voyager Guardian Lift?

    The Problem

    Mrs. C has multiple sclerosis.  Her condition requires two people to assist her when she transfers from her bed to her wheelchair.  Her husband is her primary caregiver and it is getting harder for him to perform these transfers without assistance.  Just like Mr. C, many others find making transfers from bed to wheelchair a difficult and often physically challenging task.

    Voyager Guardian Lift weighs only 12 pounds and will lift up to 440 poundsVoyager Guardian Lift Provides a Solution

    Gantry hoists are floor-standing frames which can be used with a portable hoist unit. They are usually assembled over a bed and are useful for those who are confined to bed or unable to move on their own. A portable overhead hoist is a great option to help with transfers to a bed or wheelchair.

    An example is the Voyager Guardian Lift.  The Voyager Guardian Lifter can lift up to 440 pounds, but it is compact, weighing only 12 pounds including the lift battery. It is a great option for use in a small bedroom or bathroom, which sometimes have limitations due to size. Continue reading

  • Photo A Day Challenge Improves Your Photography

    With the new year about to begin, make a New Year’s Resolution to kickstart your photography skills.   Set a goal of taking at least one photo every single day of the year – beginning with a Photo A Day January project – starting on January 1. Taking a daily photo will help improve your photography skills and capture beautiful memories of your family and your world.

    Why Participate in a Photo A Day Challenge?

    A photo helps you remember. The emotions that a photograph reminds you of can be amazing. Photography connects us to our past and helps preserve memories without words. Photography can help you see the world differently. It is a hobby you can start learning at any stage of life and the value of a photograph always increases with time.

    Photography is a popular hobby, but there are times when your creativity may dim and the inspiration dries up. A photo a day keeps the staleness away. Stagnation and boredom with a hobby like photography is a killer.

    Not only will this make you more enthusiastic, but will increase your photography skills. Practice makes progress! Shooting a daily image could, in fact, turn into a form of photo journal in which you document your life over the year.

    Check back here each month for a new Photo A Day inspiration sheet.

  • Voyager Lift Battery Tips

    A new Voyager Lift Battery can deliver power to your Voyager Lift and allow you to make as many transfers as you need.

    Voyager Lift Battery Tips

    Voyager Lift Battery from Batteryheads.com
    • Consider having an extra Voyager Lift Battery. Use one in the lift while the other remains in the charger so you will never be without the power you need.
    • The Voyager Lift Battery from Batteryheads will provide 10 to 30 transfers per battery charge. This may vary depending on user weight and battery condition.
    • The Voyager Guardian Lift uses sealed lead-acid batteries. Unlike nickel-cadmium batteries, these batteries do not have memory effect. They can be charged at any time.
    • Do not completely drain your Voyager Lift battery before recharging.
    • Eject the battery from the lift unit by using the battery eject button.  Keep your hand near the opening to catch the battery. A dropped battery may have internal damage that is not visible and may lose its ability to recharge. You should replace the battery if it has been dropped.
    • Replace your battery if there is a noticeable reduction in the number of transfers that can be performed between charges.
    • The life cycle (number of charging cycles) of the battery is largely dependent on the depth of discharge in each cycle. The deeper the battery is drained, the shorter the battery life. To prolong the battery life, put the battery into the charger whenever the lift is not in use. The battery will not over-charge.
    • Do not store the battery near a heat source.  Extreme temperatures will damage the battery.
    • Always keep the metal battery contacts clean.
    • Inspect the battery before placing it in the Voyager Lift. If the battery has any visible damage, do not use.  Replace the Voyager Lift Battery immediately.

    To replace a battery, or to purchase an additional battery, contact Batteryheads at 888-378-6888 or order your Voyager Portable Lift Replacement Battery online at Batteryheads.com.

  • World Photo Day

     

    World Photo Day 08.19.15 (blog)Join photographers from around the world in a celebration of photography on August 19.

    The date behind World Photo Day originates from the invention of the Daguerreotype, a photographic processes developed by Joseph Nicèphore Nièpce and Louis Daguerre in 1837. On January 9, 1839, The French Academy of Sciences announced the daguerreotype process. A few months later, on August 19, 1839, the French government purchased the patent and announced the invention as a gift "Free to the World".

    It should be noted that the Daguerreotype wasn't the first permanent photographic image. In 1826, Nicèphore Nièpce captured the earliest known permanent photograph known as 'View from the Window at Le Gras' using a process called Heliography.

    August 19th, 1839 was chosen as the date behind World Photo Day based on the following historical merits:

    - The Daguerreotype was the first practical photographic process. - The purchase and release of the patent by the French government.

  • Panasonic PV-GS19 Digital Video Camcorder Battery Options

    Panasonic-PV-GS19The Panasonic PV-GS19 Digital Video Camcorder has been around since 2005.  If you are using one of these camcorders, don't get caught without battery power.  Having a second battery handy gives some assurance that you can film as long as needed.  For long trips or long video shoots, make sure to take an extra battery along.

    The PV-GS19 uses the CGR-DU06 lithium-ion rechargeable battery.  The TechFuel replacement battery, CGA-DU07, is compatible with the Panasonic CGR-DU06 camcorder and replaces the Panasonic CGR-DU06 battery.  It will power your camcorder with 750 mAh.

    Another option is to use the TechFuel CGA-DU14.  This battery is the same as the CGA-DU07 but with 1500 mAh, double the battery's energy storage capacity.  If you imagine a battery as a small fuel storage tank, which in a sense it is, the mAh a measure of how much "fuel" the battery holds.  The higher the mAh rating the more electrical energy it can store.

    The TechFuel travel charger is also compatible with all of these batteries and can replace the charger that came with your camera or be a second charger for travel or work.
