Our company is dedicated to supplying, installing, and maintaining many mobility hoists and other patient handling equipment based on your needs. We also have our own engineers to provide all the service you need, even after the hoist is installed.
We are one of the approved suppliers for the world’s leading manufacturers, including Arjo Hoists, Invacare, Alerta Medical and Oxford Hoists so you know you are getting good quality. We can supply all types of mobility hoists, from mobile hoists to ceiling tracks based on your needs.
There are several benefits to using a ceiling track hoist, both for the person being lifted and the caregiver. Some of these benefits include:
- Only one caregiver has to do the transfer
- Self-transfers can be possible with some of our systems.
- The transfer is smoother for the one being lifted
- It is easily available and will not take up space on the floor.
- You can move it from one room to another.
- Allows for fully room coverage.
Types of Mobility Hoists
There are several types of mobility hoists that we can provide to our customers. Some of these include:
- Gantry hoists: These are similar to the ceiling hoists, allowing it to move on an overhead rail. However, they are more portable and free standing. Most are used with a portable motor that goes along the rail.
- Mobile hoists: Our company provides many mobile hoists depending on the lifting requirements. Some will fold down so you can take them apart, but they are difficult to move around the room unless you have them on a hard floor.
- Bariatric hoists: This type of hoist can lift heavier individuals up to 30 stone. These can provide more security as well.
- Trampoline hoists: This is the only floor hoist that will lift up enough to help someone get onto a trampoline. The best one for this is the Victor 2600 and it is used to help place someone on an above ground trampoline for rebound therapy.
If you are interested in purchasing a disabled hoist to help you take care of a patient or someone you love, contact us at Martlet Mobility Services Ltd to help you choose the right one.
