More Details
Hand held push button control on an extendible cord.
Dual speed control.
Hand held control is a narrow, curved, cylindrical shape with a hook at either end.
Dual speed allows the hoist to be moved more quickly when no longer required.
Powered horizontal movement can allow an occupant to have more independence when using the hoist.

Many options available including single, double, parallel, straight, curved and room covering style tracking.
Alternatives are available to allow the hoist to be used between rooms including a swing kit.
Turntables are available to allow more than two directions to use the tracking.

There are two overlapping hooks at either end of the spreader bar. This allows slings with strap loop attachments to be used on this hoist.
Wide spreader bar can spread the positioning of the sling so the occupant is less confined.
The webbing strap does not twist when the spreader bar rotates.

Batteries that require regular charging.
The recharging unit is fitted to one end of the tracking. When the hoist is banked there, it will automatically recharge using mains electricity power source.

Emergency stopping is done by pulling a red emergency strap.
Emergency lowering is done by a second pull on the same strap.

Extension strap to increase the lift range.
Switch tracks to change direction on the tracking.
Turntable for tracking which turns using a motor.
Combi Lock to allow a single track to be linked up to a room covering track system.
