What are ceiling track hoists?
Ceiling track hoists are one of the simplest and safest methods to safely transfer patients from a bed to a chair, to the bathroom or into a wheelchair. Patient Slings and track hoists reduce the risk of injury, free up space and save time.
Track hoists can be mounted on the ceiling, from walls using direct into block brackets or floor to ceiling support legs or supported on free standing gantry frames. There are many specialist fixings available.
Suitable for use in the home as well as in hospitals and care homes, Care-ability Healthcare offer a range of ceiling track hoists, gantry hoists and mobile hoist options in different sizes to best fit the environment whilst meeting the needs of the user and carer.
How long do ceiling track hoists take to install?
A basic ceiling track hoist can be installed in a matter of hours and with very little disruption. In the majority of cases no structural alterations will be required. There are many fixing types available to enable safe installation in properties with sloping ceilings, suspended ceilings, composite joists and stud walls. Where no solid structure is present, gantry frames can be used as a means of support. There are very few scenarios where tracks cannot be fitted.
There is a large selection of models available with varying specifications and safe working loads. Both manual and powered traverse options can be provided depending on individual requirements. Portable hoist units are also available that can be easily moved from track to track.
What track options are available?
Some of the track options include straight tracks, curved tracks, H system (X-Y system) full room coverage tracks, room to room tracks, turntables and switch tracks. This wide range of ceiling track hoist options enable all manner of care tasks to be achieved in the most efficient way possible.
