Ceiling hoists and ceiling track systems are becoming an increasingly popular alternative to mobile hoists
and are an ideal solution for when longer term transfer needs are required, or the caregiver is unable to manoeuvre and position a mobile hoist easily.
This could be due to many factors that may also include common issues like a carpeted or uneven floor.
A ceiling track is a great way administer single handed care to the user and makes it easier for the carer and a much safer lift for everyone.
A ceiling track hoist is constanly connected to a power supply and there is no need to remember the charge the unit once it has been used and stowed away in its parking area - unlike mobile hoists.
A ceiling track hoist or gantry can be fitted and used in properties that have uneven, multi level or carpeted floors
A fitted ceiling track hoist needs little or no physical effort by the caregiver to transfer the user.
When a user is in a sling on a fitted ceiling track hoist, they can be rotated to any angle during the lift, which can make things easier.
Finally, a fitted hoist can be upgraded and/or changed to incorporate more area if the need arises.
