Mobile Hoists

Mobile hoists are used to transfer people from a bed to a wheelchair, toilet chair, bathtub, or commode. A full-body lift is used for non-weight-bearing residents, residents with physical limitations (i.e., quadriplegic or amputee), and/or bariatric residents. A full-body lift supports the resident’s entire weight with a sling attached to a swivel bar on the lift’s boom.

Manual lifting of a resident poses a real threat to caregivers and residents. Full body lifts minimise caregiver back and shoulder injuries. In addition, full-body lifts are much safer for the resident than manual transfers, where there is a greater risk of dropping or mishandling the resident. Our mobile hoists are very stable and require very little force to push or pull, even with a bariatric resident in a sling. Invacare slings are designed to reduce the risk of skin tears and abrasion.
