Patient Ceiling Hoists

Ceiling hoists serve as supportive mechanisms employed in both home and healthcare environments to facilitate lifting and transferring individuals when manual handling poses challenges. These hoists feature a motorised unit affixed to a ceiling-mounted track or rail system. They work in tandem with a sling or harness secured to the person being lifted. Control is managed through a remote or switch, ensuring a secure and efficient process for elevating and transferring individuals.
