The FreeSpan UltraTwin lift system is equipped with lockable wheels, making it easier to place correctly for lifting and facilitating cleaning. FreeSpan UltraTwin is a freestanding system, and since it is not affixed to the walls or the ceiling, there are no special strength requirements for those structures. The system is available in a range of different rail lengths for optimal adaptation to the size of the room.
Thanks to a system with two lift motors that work together, UltraTwin lifts and transfers and helps position the patient in semi-reclining or horizontal positions. In addition, UltraTwin can be installed with two different widths between rails: one for sitting transfers and one for transferring in a horizontal position with a stretcher.
A gantry hoist is a ceiling track hoist. The only difference is that the cassette (hoist unit) is mounted on a portable frame with legs rather than fixed to a ceiling. Gantries are ideal if you only need the system for a short time. For example, sometimes, we fit a gantry system as a temporary measure before we fit a ceiling track hoist or for clients who do not want any holes drilled into their ceiling or walls.
Gantry hoists are floor-standing frames that can be used with a mains-powered hoist unit or a battery-powered portable hoist unit. They are usually stood over a bed and are valuable for those confined to bed for long periods. While some frames are awkward and heavy to set up, all of the models offered here at Active Mobility Centre are chosen because they are well-designed and boast excellent usability. This often means they are lighter and more manageable. Our gantry hoists do not rely on support from the ceiling, making them suitable for properties where any potential structural issues have been encountered.
