Person hoists are very similar to the hoists that are used in the home such as bath hoists and bed hoists. They lift the person into the front of a comfortable car seat.
The person sits in a sling (small, medium or large) and an electric motor will raise them out of the wheelchair. With the help of an assistant their legs are swung into the vehicle and they are gently lowered into the passenger seat.
Milford Person Hoist
We have a range of hoists to get you in and out of the vehicle easily. We have sling sizes from small to large, so we can measure you to get the right fit. An ideal transfer solution for varying levels and types of disability. A person hoist ensures access in and out of almost any vehicle.
Milford Smart Base
A smart base can be added to the person hoist to ensure transportation when you’ve reached your destination. It has adjustable legs and provides mobility, independence and freedom wherever you go. The smart base is also easy to store away, as it folds down to a small “shopping trolley” style unit.
A sturdy fabric sling is placed between the person and the wheelchair and hooked to the Handylift to allow an easy transfer from the wheelchair to the car seat. It can lift up to 110kg. It will fit in the boot after use. The Handylift is adjustable to suit different needs.
