Types of Hoist

Disability Hoist Hire provide three types of hoist:
Mobile Hoists

Mobile hoists are designed especially with the domestic care environment and patient in mind. This is the most commonly used type of hoist. Mobile hoists (also known as full hoists) provide maximum support and can be used for people of all ages with a variety of different abilities.

Mobile Standing Hoists

Mobile standing hoists are designed to allow an individual to be transferred in a standing position. Standing hoists are not suitable for all individuals. Standing hoists can assist with rehabilitation, as each transfer is standing practice. Standing hoists can also be used during therapy as a standing and / or walking aid. Some individuals choose to have both mobile full hoist and a mobile standing hoist for therapeutic reasons. Please click below for a full description of each standing hoist.

Portable Gantry Hoists

If space is limited, a portable gantry system may be the best solution.

A portable gantry hoist can be set up in minutes and consists of a piece of rail/track which is adjustable in height and length to meet your needs.

With a portable gantry hoist there is less strain on the carer as no manual manoeuvring of the hoist is required. Portable gantry hoists use very little floor space, which eliminates the storage problems sometimes caused by floor based hoists. These hoists allow lifting, repositioning, weighing and transfers.
