A ceiling hoist is a professional-grade, movable hoist that uses ceiling tracks to relocate patients with mobility issues. Single-track systems are also available, giving aged care facilities more control over where they can easily move patients without presenting a lifting injury risk to carers. By installing a single-track Guldmann Ceiling hoist that travels from the bed to the bathroom, for example, a patient can be more easily transported within their living area, resulting in more efficient care.
In the days that came before mobility hoists, helping disabled and elderly people to complete their daily routines was a challenging task. For those with mobility issues, something as simple as getting in and out of the bath, bed, or car, would require physical assistance of a dedicated care provider. Not only was this dangerous for all people involved, but the privacy of the affected individual was often compromised.
Which is why at HLS Healthcare we have been supplying and installing Guldmann Ceiling Hoists and track systems since 2000, making us one of the most experienced suppliers of ceiling hoist systems in Australia.
Our hoists can be used almost anywhere to improve accessibility, they allow people to be moved quickly and most importantly safely for both the patient and carer, they ensure that care providers don’t have to take on dangerous processes to help the individual they’re assisting move.
HLS Healthcare is proud to represent Guldmann and its full line of ceiling hoist systems. These easy-to-use, fully integrated hoisting solutions are perfect for lifting, relocating, and weighing patients who have mobility issues. Key features and benefits of the many customisable ceiling hoist configurations include:
- Adjustable, custom-sized harnesses for patients of most sizes
- Simple, straightforward hoist operation makes for easy use for carers and attendants
- The integrated scale allows for weighing of patients without requiring them to stand or sit
- The built-to-order tracking system is durable and reliable
Adding a quality ceiling hoist will go a long way to help protect carers as well as give patients more comfortable throughout their day.
Mobile hoist solutions from Guldmann offer a great combination of convenience, portability, and ease-of-use for patients who need assistance to move from a chair or bed. These mobile lifters are easy to relocate without needing to be structurally removed from the floor or wall. This is accomplished with precision bearing-assisted wheels as part of the overall hoist construction.
Mobile hoists are fantastic for managed care organisations that need hoist assistance with patients in multiple areas of their facility. Mobility means better care provided to more patients in less time.
