Disabled Access Hoist for Hot Tubs

14 year old Joel Tucker is now able to enjoy hydrotherapy sessions at home following the installation of a Handi-Move wall hoist supplied by Dolphin Lifts.

Joel now uses the hot tub at least twice a week and his legs have strengthened considerably since he started using it.

There are two versions of the wall lift which are suitable for aiding access to a bath or hot tub as well as a mains only version which can only be used indoors.

The lift can be mains powered, with an emergency battery back up, using a transformer to make it safe to operate in wet areas. If the hot tub isn't close to a power supply a battery only powered wall lift is also available.

The Handimove wall hoist has been designed for use in confined spaces such as around a hot tub where tracked or mobile hoists are unsuitable. It is also often used inside the home if there are low ceilings or if fixings can't be made overhead.

The wall lift is controlled via a waterproof hand control, making it completely safe for use in an environment where there may be water.

The telescopic arm of the hoist can extend the radius of its arc from 900mm to 1300mm (354” to 512”) which ensures the user can be easily transferred from their chair. There is also an extension bracket available if a longer reach is required.
