At Shelden Healthcare we offer a range of diligently manufactured mobile hoists, or mobile patient hoists as they are sometimes known, for the safe process of hoisting (lifting) and transferring a patient who is elderly, disabled or injured. Mobile hoists are ideal for users who don’t have the ability to move from one location to another without help. They also remove the manual strains on carers and provide a safer alternative to lifting using only their own strength.
We have an extensive range of hoists available to meet all kinds of requirements, whether you're on a budget, looking for a specific brand, or in need of a hoist that will stand the test of time. If you're in need of assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us on 0178 883 3294. We will be more than happy to talk through your unique situation and recommend a product best suited to your requirements.
There are 2 types of mobile hoists: passive and active. Passive hoists are designed to lift from any location from the floor, bed, bath and other seated positions. The patient using this particular hoist will be safe and secure, even if they have very limited mobility and cannot participate in the moving and handling themselves. Active hoists are designed to hoist only from a seated position. This gives the patient the ability to participate during the hoisting and moving. This is also known as a sit to stand transfer hoist, which is ideal for bed to chair, chair to chair, chair to toilet and other positions. If you are unsure on which type of mobile hoist you or your patient needs, please call us on 0800 0148672.
