The Robin Ceiling Hoist provides the most innovative way of transferring care to nursing staff. Ensuring excellent personal contact, the two-strap design offers comfort and efficiency in a safe patient-handling environment. Without the need for a spreader bar, a secure and dignified transfer can be achieved in combination with a ceiling track.
Comfort: The robin ceiling hoist offers a two-strap design that gives unsurpassed stability during the transfer. The smooth, soft start function makes positioning more gentle, and the two-speed motor reduces the amount of time required for the transfer. In addition, the strap-only configuration eliminates the need for a spreader bar of any size, adapting automatically to the weight and shape of the client.
Transferring with dignity and personal contact is essential. The absence of a spreader bar provides the client with a sense of freedom, reducing the fear of being close to intrusive parts of the lifting equipment. This enhances the transfer experience by introducing a unique dignified method of moving people.
Ceiling track hoists
A ceiling track hoist is usually fitted directly onto a ceiling above the area required. If a ceiling cannot support the user’s weight, then the weight can be transferred down the walls into the floor by using particular support legs fitted flat against the walls. The system comprises the rail and the cassette (the assisted transfer itself). Ceiling track hoists are generally wired into the main supply and are constantly charged.
Room to room: We can install a ceiling track hoist covering multiple rooms with clever junction plates and track selectors. Some hoists can also be linked to separate tracks, which can be used with transfer straps, which allow track switching. The ceiling track hoist can be removed quickly, and all that is left are a few mounting holes that can be quickly filled and painted over.
Mobile or portable hoists
These are small, mobile devices that can lift someone from a chair to a bed, from a bed to a commode. All mobile-assisted transfer devices for disabled people have been developed, especially for the domestic care environment and the patient in mind. However, they can be an issue for carers and loved ones as they require the operator’s ability to push and manoeuvre.
