Lifting equipment and systems come in different shapes and sizes to suit the diversity of situations and individual persons lifting needs, they can provide support to individual appendages or the entire body. Some provide motorised control and are moved along a set track system while others have the option to be mobile and can be moved from space to space.
Before lifting systems were used, aiding disabled and elderly persons when they needed to perform daily tasks posed a significant risk to all involved. A simple task like getting in and out of bed would pose a coordinated challenge to ensure safety.
We specialise in installing lifting equipment such as ceiling hoists, bath lifters, pool hoists and tracking systems. We also specialise in installing patient lifting hoists in hospitals, aged care facilities where lifts are an essential component of patient care. Whether you’re installing these in your home to care for a loved one, or an organisation, our team are here to help. Our extensive experience in building and modification work means we are ideally placed to help you plan, implement and safely use specialised assistive technology.
Installing a lifting system in a home can help with among other things:
- Relocation of an individual from one room to another
- Transfer of a patient from a bed to a wheelchair or vice versa
- Elevation of a single limb
- Alleviation of pressure points
- Isolation of a limb
