In our Hospice new build we are planning 2 rooms designed to cope with larger patients. We are considering which type of ceiling hoist to use – it will be wall mounted not ceiling fixed and it cannot be build in to the walls due to sound insulation limitations. I would like to ask if anyone has information to share about the positives of particular systems. If anyone wishes to privately share any negative experiences you can email me at email@example.com
We will also need to consider suitable beds – any recommendations?
Thanks for sharing your ideas.
I have forward your request to Nathan, manager Active healthcare, we use their ceiling hoists for large clients and are fit for purpose,
the Guldman range are the best I have used, quality and safety are paramount in their design,
Thanks we have asked for tenders from suppliers, but want I really want to know from members is the good the bad and the ugly – But privately not for everyone to see! Please let me know if you have an opinion and what the problems have been so we don’t make a mistake! Thanks
Just letting people know the new Bariatric ceiling hoist from Molift will be available very soon. Safe working load of 500kg on a single motor, it does have some significant other advantages over smaller motor or double motor ceiling hoists. Please do get in touch if you would like to know more. There is quite a bit happening in the Molift range regards overhead hoisting, so if your organisation does have a need please add Morton&Perry to your supplier information requests.
