A patient hoist, or sometimes know as a mobile hoist, is a mobile mechanical lifting device used for lifting and moving someone from one location to another. Whether that be out of a chair, into a bed, on to a commode or from one room to another, a mobile patient hoist assists in these movements.

This moving & handling equipment is well 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.

Mobile hoists offer maximum support for both the person being lifted and moved, as well as protecting and safe guarding the carer doing the moving. The aim of using any manual handling equipment, such as a patient hoist, is to reduce the risk of injuries, to the lowest possible level. With the use of a mobile hoist it allows individual to still participate in different daily activities, as well as keeping your home and environment accessible.
