Our mobile hoists can be absolutely essential mobility aids for the elderly or disabled, as well as for carers and family members acting as carers. The flexibility and convenience offered by a mobile hoist means that they are as suitable for commercial care environments as they are for a homecare environment. In fact, a hoist could be an invaluable addition to the home, helping you or your loved ones to stay comfortable in the home they love.
Our hoists are available in a few different setups. Many are electrically operated, using a battery-powered system to raise and lower the hoist. They are also more compact than you might think, with low clearance and rolling wheels that offer easy access underneath beds and around chairs for safer patient transfers. One of our most popular hoists, the Invacare Birdie Compact Hoist, uses a folding frame that can be carried by one person without the use of tools.
You’ll also find a selection of slings and transfer chairs in our hoists range. Our slings are designed to support different parts of the body – some will support the hips and lower back, some will support the whole body and others are designed to aid standing transfers.
Our transfer chairs assist with safe transfers of patients in commercial care environments as well as homecare environments. They are fitted with lap belts and anti-tip wheels for extra security, while some also have locking brakes and armrests. The wipe-clean upholstery of our transfer chairs means they are low maintenance, highly useful mobility aids.
