Ceiling Mounted Hoists

Mounting the hoist to the ceiling is usually the preferred method of installation when considering the manual handling of a patient or disabled person. A ceiling mounted hoist has several advantages over alternative lifting methods.

  • A ceiling hoist takes up no floor space

  • The user can operate independently

  • Permanently fixed hoist and portable hoists available on ceiling mounted tracks

  • Does not require 2 carers to operate, as is currently recommended when using mobile floor hoists

  • The ceiling hoist track can travel from room to room

  • The portable hoist is easily detached for use on tracking installed in other rooms
