The Liko 45 Degree Curved Track Rail System Ceiling Track Hoist is a popular rail configuration. The 45 degree curved track installation is a cost effective means of transfer between two surfaces offset by 45 degrees. There are many installation possibilities, the example image shows a typical Bedroom layout.
Typically we would recommend a manually traversing track but a powered traverse option is available, this means that as you manually guide the patient the hoist will follow with very little resistance. The up and down is still powered and is operated from a simple 2 button hand control.
The main advantage of using a track hoist is that transfers are simplified in comparison to a mobile floor hoist. With a ceiling track hoist there is no bulky equipment to move around or resistance from carpets. In some circumstances the equipment can be operated by a single carer, this would need to be risk assessed on an individual basis.
