A ceiling hoists is one of the most effective and secure ways to lift and move people in a care or rehabilitation setting. Mounting all of your lifting equipment on the ceiling means that you won’t have to take up floor space with conventional stands and other tools. At the same time, because the hoist takes on most of the weight of the people it is lifting, there’s minimal risk to the care provider. Rather than calling multiple people to move a patient, care facilities can easily transfer residents from one environment to another with just one care professional present.
It’s well-documented that using a correctly-fitted ceiling hoist can reduce the risk of over-exertion, strain, and injury in moving and handling processes. This means better comfort for patients and individuals, as well as better job satisfaction for care providers.
Of course, you’ll need the right ceiling lift system and sling to get started.

For many rehabilitation centres, care homes, and even hospital environments, Guldmann ceiling mounted hoists form an essential part of a complete moving and handling kit.

Guldmann also offers the option for combination systems that lock two disparate rails together for full-building coverage.
Guldmann Slings and Lifting Equipment
While the ceiling hoist system itself is the most technically advanced part of a modern moving strategy, it’s also essential to have the right sling attached to your hoist so that you can ensure better stability and comfort for your users. That’s why Guldmann offers a range of hoists specifically designed for use with its lift equipment.
Guldmann slings are specially designed for use with their hoist systems. These comfortable yet durable products are ideal for moving people with movement issues, and they can be used for transition procedures, or even to help patients with part of their rehabilitation and training exercises.

These slings have been custom-made to deliver an easy and practical solution for carers who need to offer users both comfort and independence when they’re moved from one environment to another.
Guldmann slings, just like Guldmann ceiling lifting systems, come in a range of shapes and sizes to suit the needs of individual users. After all, good care is rarely a one-size-fits-all concept.
