Fitted and Mobile Hoists

Consider a hoist if you are a carer or if you know someone who is, you will be fully aware of the hard work involved in the caring process. The responsibility is huge, and you also have to deal with the fact that there is a large time investment. If the person being cared for is someone who is immobile for some or all of the time, getting them to another position in the room, or even helping them to stay clean, can mean a massive physical effort.

It’s hard work, but one of the very best things you can do to ease the pressure here is to consider the option of mobile hoists. Many people find that it is the one thing that transforms their lives and makes caring for someone else a lot easier and more positive.

A mobile hoist is a motorised lifting device used for lifting and moving patients from one location to another. Whether that be out of a chair, into a bed, onto a commode or from one room to another, a mobile patient hoist assists in these movements.

This moving and handling equipment is suited for moving a person who is less abled, due to a disability, illness or injury, that prevents them from moving themselves. With the use of a sling, the person is lifted up completely from a sitting or lying position, moved to where they need to go and then lowered back down into a sitting or lying position.
