The "tarzan" system: modified version of the portable motor, for lifting between two rooms with a classic doorway

To use the portable motor, thanks to the "tarzan" system, no adjustments are needed to your doorways. As these are individual rail tracks, there is therefore no need for any breaking work to adapt doorways to allow the track rails to pass from one room to another.

The "tarzan" system is a modified version of the portable motor (with an additional eye ring), specifically for lifting between two connecting rooms (e.g. bedroom and bathroom) that have a classic doorway.

With the "tarzan" system, the multiloop straps of the portable motor are suspended by the attendant from one rail to the other (via the eye ring) and "swing" you safely through the doorway.

The door opening does not have to be modified

Using the portable motor does not require any modifications to your doors or home. Everything remains as it is. As these are individual rail tracks, no doorways need to be modified.

Can be used in different rooms with different rail sections (bedroom, bathroom, toilet, shower...): take it where you need to go

Handi-Move's portable ceiling hoist (portable motor) is a flexible solution for lifting and transferring people with mobile disabilities in different spaces that cannot be connected with one continuous rail system: in one home, on different floors or in different locations. Handi-Move installs a ceiling track rail where needed and the portable ceiling lift does the rest.

No room remains inaccessible, no matter how small. Wherever rails are provided, the portable motor can go with it. For example, for transfers to the bed in the bedroom, the bath, the care table and/or the toilet in the bathroom, a separate toilet, the recliner in the living room, for wheelchair changes in the garage...

Even staying at the holiday cottage or with grandparents is no longer a problem: the portable motor can be taken along so that grandma and grandpa can lift and care for their grandchild effortlessly.

In combination with the Handi-Move Body Support® or slings

In combination with the Handi-Move Body Support® or slings, the portable ceiling hoist solves all user needs and wishes.

Thanks to the integrated hooks for the slings along both sides of the motor, and the hook for the Body Support at the bottom, this portable ceiling lift can be used without any problem with all Handi-Move body support systems.

Light and compact, yet powerful: lifting up to 182 kg.

The user-friendly portable motor is no bigger than a shoebox. It weighs barely 8 kg so it can be carried effortlessly by the handle. With the reacher, the motorband can be quickly and easily hooked in and out of the rail. No ladder or chair is needed.

And yet this lightweight compact ceiling hoist features a powerful motor. The lift effortlessly lifts up to 182 kg.

Budget-friendly: one motor for several places.

Because one motor is used for multiple rooms and locations, it is a financially advantageous solution.

Aesthetic: streamlined timeless design

The portable ceiling hoist is an aesthetic solution for your home. The streamlined timeless design of the motor fits any type of home. And when not in use, the motor can be easily stored out of sight.

Reliable thanks to two powerful rechargeable batteries

The portable motor runs on two powerful rechargeable batteries. They have a long service life and great autonomy of use. With a separate charger, the batteries can be charged anywhere at an existing standard socket. Power in or around the rail is not necessary.

The motor is safe when used in humid conditions.

Easy use with dual controls

The portable motor can be operated with the separate manual control or with buttons on the motor itself.

A button for emergency descent is featured.

Option: transport trolley for the portable motor

Prefer not to carry the motor too much anyway? As a caregiver, you can use the transport trolley to move the motor to another room effortlessly.
