Portable Hoists : Portable Travel Hoist

Compact and Portable Travel Hoist:

The Portable Travel Hoist can be used in the home for day to day transfers but is also compact enough to be taken with you on day trips and holidays.

Hoisting a person into the front seat of a car.

The spreader bar has been designed to enable a person to be lifted into most cars by lifting them from the front rather than overhead.

The compact folding design means the hoist can be easily stored in the boot of a car by one person, or put in the hold of an aircraft, coach or train.

Storing the Portable Hoist in a Car Boot

The Portable Travel Hoist can be used with most loop slings, enhancing and improving the quality of life of wheelchair users and their carers.
