What type of energy transfer happens when you lift a chair?
Your muscular energy - a form of chemical energy - is converted to potential energy of the chair.
You CAN use a hoyer lift after a hip replacement. You have to be mindful of the patient's hip precautions during the transfer. Using a pillow between the patient's legs will help to avoid excessive hip adduction. When possible use multiple people to assist in the transfer. Be sure that the patient's hip flexion does not exceed 90 degrees. Depending on the reason for the transfer there may be better options than a hoyer lift…
The exact operation may vary some with the type of lift, the chair and sometimes even the person in the chair. For many lifts you will back the chair onto the lift and secure it to the lift by locking down the wheels and with a belt that goes across the front of the chair and person, you put on the wheelchairs brakes and then you activate the switch that raises or lowers the lift…
Bed should be about level with wheelchair, then park wheelchair parallel with the side of the bed with the brakes on. You can use a slide board or just use your arms by pushing down on chair with hands and slowly slide over towards the bed. After your in the bed the reach down and lift your legs up into the bed. Transfer back to chair the same way.

If you are a senior and you qualify for Medicare then they will most likely pay a large percentage of the cost of your lift chair. They almost never pay the entire cost but they will help you considerably. You can contact your local Social Security Office to find out if you are eligible and some lift chair companies will even do the work for you.
I don't believe there is a special word for stored energy, I would just call it that, "stored energy". Energy of position is called potential energy. For example, if you lift a weight against the force of gravitation, the energy you transfer to the object is stored as gravitational potential energy. At a higher position, it has more of this energy than when it is at a low position.
You wait until the people in front of you have skied up to a line in the snow and stopped. Once the chair lift swings by for them, follow it slowly, and ski up to the line that shows through the snow (usually accompanied by a lift operator). Stop at the line, and wait for the chair lift to come up behind you. Usually the lift operator will grab it to slow the chair down…
Lift Chairs are mostly covered under Medicare, but this coverage will not always be 100%. As of today Medicare will provide maximum $280 reimbursement. To receive this coverage you also need to prove that the patient has severe arthritis of the hip or knee or have a severe neuromuscular disease, the physician must have advised a lift chair and the patient should not be able to stand up from any given regular chair.
A wheel chair lift comes in a few different varieties - the kind that can be used alone or the kind that requires assistance. The kind that requires assistance is slightly easier but chair lift manufacturers recommend having a mechanic install it because it needs to be wired into the cars computer system.
