TV lifts are designed to securely and silently lift and lower a television
screen out of a cabinet or wall unit. Popular in contemporary homes as well as
modern workplaces, TV lifts can be used to conserve space by concealing the
television in cabinets or walls, using the device to lift the screens out or
put them away ergonomically without any physical effort.
Top seven reasons for using a TV
1. TV lifts increase safety
Studies indicate the occurrence of a high number of injuries and deaths
from tipping and toppling furniture. Heavy television sets placed freestanding
on cabinets or tables pose the biggest risk, especially to young children who
may scramble to change channels, reach for a remote or climb furniture.
Statistics from the American study, National Electronic Injury
Surveillance System reveal that a child is, on average injured by a television
falling on them about every 30 minutes; between 1990 and 2011, almost 381,000
children were injured by a TV; and most of these children were under the age of
5 years. The 21-year span of the study covers the introduction and growth of
flat screen TVs.
In Australia, between 2006 and 2010, there were 389 emergency department
visits due to an injury from a television tipping over at home. The Victorian
Injury Surveillance Unit found that 76 per cent were children aged 14 and under;
58 per cent were children aged between 0 and 4; two-year-olds were most
commonly injured (21 per cent); and the most commonly injured body parts were
the head (19 per cent), feet (16 per cent) and face (12 per cent).
