Heavy lifts during daily routines - use a Ceiling Hoist or Floor Lifter
Mobility hoists make caring for disabled and elderly people easier by minimising heavy lifts for their carers and family. Especially for patients with mobility issues, a hoist is an essential tool. The ceiling hoist, floor hoist and patient lifter are ideal to transfer patients to for example the toilet, bath or bed.
Benefits of investing in mobility hoists and patient lifters
A mobility hoist is an aid designed for assisting with the care of a person with limited mobility. It can be used either at home or in a care home facility to assist with daily routines such as toileting, getting from bed to wheelchair, getting around the house, bathing etc. The hoist ensures that care providers don’t have to risk hurting themselves from performing heavy lifts when transferring a patient from one place to another. It also makes everyday routines safer for patients with limited mobility as the risk of the carer failing to carry their weight is eliminated.
Which hoist or patient lifter should I choose?
A ceiling hoist, such as the Elara Ceiling Hoist, is the perfect solution when caring for patients affected by aging and disability. It makes it very easy to transfer around the home as needed. For those that don’t want to make permanent modifications to their homes, one of the Oxford floor hoist and patient lifters would be a perfect aid. They don’t take up much space and can easily be moved around the house or aged care facility.
Using Bariatric Hoists
When people who suffer from mobility problems are no longer able to exercise and enjoy physical activity as normal, it is very common to see an increase in their body weight. As such, the standard hoisting device that’s used by most medical professionals may not be safe to use. With that in mind, it is important to ensure that you choose a bariatric hoist that has been specifically designed to provide support for the excess weight. Our Elara Ceiling Hoist has a safe working load up to 284 kgs.
Our selection of hoist accessories includes the Oxford 6-point spreader bar with uniscale and the Oxford 4-point active powered cradle. We also offer the Oxford classic digital weigh-scale and spreader bar, perfect if you need to weigh the patient(s) on a regular basis.
