Ceiling hoists & Mobile hoists provide safer patient transfers
Hoists are passive lifters and are used when a client has no self-mobility and is not able to stand to transfer themselves from bed to wheelchair for example. Morton & Perry can assist whether you are after a: mobile hoist, ceiling hoists or a sling to accommodate your needs. Ceiling hoist vs mobile hoist; A ceiling hoist is a track mounted to a ceiling or wall with a lifting unit that holds the sling and navigates through the ceiling hoist track. The benefit is that it takes up no floor space, but travel is limited to the installed track, and the track needs to be installed by a builder to the home. A gantry hoist is an overhead hoist system but on four posts and can be configured to room size. A gantry hoist provides unlimited freedom to move the user anywhere within the 4 posts. Mobile hoists offer unlimited freedom of travel, making it suitable for a large range of applications.
