Gantry hoists are floor-standing frames which can be used with a mains powered hoist unit or a battery powered portable hoist unit. They are usually stood over a bed and they are useful for those who are confined to bed for long periods.
While some frames are awkward and heavy to set up, all of the models offered here at Active Mobility Centre are chosen because they are well-designed and boast excellent usability. This often means they are lighter and more manageable.
The freestanding patient gantry hoist is great when a high degree of flexibility is needed and it is ideal for short term or emergency hoisting requirements in hospitals. The gantry hoist is completely free standing, requiring no structural support from the ceiling or walls.
The gantry hoist offers an innovative transfer method for those who require an overhead hoist system, but do not want to permanently attach a hoist track to their ceilings or walls.
Gantry setups offer an ideal solution when it is not convenient for a permanent system to be installed; such as when someone with disabilities is travelling away from home on holiday or to care facilities, if it is not possible to fix a track to walls and ceilings or if there is only a short-medium term need for the equipment.
A gantry hoist can also be moved from one room to another. This hoist has a maximum lifting capacity of 200kg.
Two large low rise feet are provide exceptional stability, and the whole system is constructed from lightweight aluminum, making it quick and simple to transport and assemble.
Our gantry hoists do not rely on support from the ceiling, making them suitable for properties where any potential structural issues have been encountered.
