The lower body remains free
The big advantage of the active hoist is that the lower body remains free so that lower body clothing can be removed without difficulty. With the help of a sling supporting the back and under the arms the user is lifted into a standing position. The sling is fitted quickly and easily without placing
too much pressure on the shoulders. The system is designed to support the body as much as possible, without overloading the shoulder line.
The active hoist is also an excellent aid when dealing with incontinent patients.
