A ceiling track hoist consists of a piece of rail/track which is permanently attached to the ceiling, wall or post.
With a ceiling fixed hoist there is less strain as no manual lifting is required. An overhead hoist uses no floor space, which eliminates storage concerns and provides a high lifting height from the floor.
It is a versatile option which enables you to lift, reposition, weigh or help the user onto a toilet.
Full room access and to other rooms, through the door header is easily achievable and only 1 person (caregiver) is required to operate. Solo operation is also an option depending on the users abilities and the hoists can be mains or battery powered.
A ceiling fixed lift is easier to use than a floor lift, which can be difficult to manoeuvre if carpeting is an issue.
The following track configurations are available with ceiling hoists: Straight Track, X-Y system or H Track, room to room track system, curves, Y junctions, turntables, gates, exchangers and portable tracks.
