If you are a carer in need of a safer alternative to lifting, stationary hoists are a useful piece of equipment which remove the manual strains when using your own strength.
Stationary hoists are mounted to the floor or a wall. Although the base of the hoist is fixed, a support arm pivots to transfer the person sideways. Stationary hoists use a sling or harness similar to that of a wheeled hoist.
The primary design consideration for a stationary hoist is the structural strength of the floor or wall it is attached to. The advice of a structural engineer is a must. Other considerations include the arc of the hoist swing (ensure it reaches the necessary elements) and making sure that clear space is available for the wheelchair during the transfer to and from the hoist.
