Description

The ICON Standing Hoists’ compact construction is ideal for use in small spaces and nonstandard-width doorways. Patients can be moved directly to a bathtub, toilet or bed and back in a standing position without heavy lifting from a wheelchair. The electric leg spreading enables the unit to be in close proximity to chairs, beds or wheelchairs, which helps with stabilising the transfer process. The Standing hoist is also capable of emergency floor lifts with the use of an optional sling for the purpose. With a safe working load of 25.9st., the ICON Standing Hoist is suitable for the majority of users.

Standing hoist or patient lifter

A standing hoist is used when a person has difficulty standing but can still with some assistance. These are good for transferring from bed to chair or similar activities. Similar to a portable hoist, but is not intended to be a complete full-body lift.

Advantages

Suitable for quick transfers that involve sitting to stand and back again. As well it’s suitable for transporting people in a sitting position.

Disadvantages

It requires flat, level floors that can be challenging to manoeuvre on carpets. Also, the hoist requires effort to move and position correctly. It can be challenging to lift from standard domestic beds and seating as the legs need to pass under the furniture. It can put pressure on the lower legs causing pain, not usually suitable for people with limited joint movement.
