The use of a mobile hoist has become an integral part of delivering health and social care services, greatly reducing musculoskeletal injury risks to carers and making them popular in many different care environments. With concerns of safety in mind hoists have been implemented into many moving and handling applications.
The right selection for hoisting equipment can reduce the number of carers required for a task and more importantly reduce physical loading on the carer/s however the selection of the wrong equipment drastically increases the risks of injury both to the patient and to the carer.
Last year, the rate of musculoskeletal injury in the healthcare industry was a shocking 1600 per 100,000 workers! Any case of injury or damage imposes ‘human’ costs (in terms of the impact on the individual’s quality of life, associated distress, and, for fatal injuries, loss of life), as well as the ‘financial’ costs.
We believe that our hoists are heroes hence the name “HERO HOISTS”
The Hero comes in 3 sizes making them suitable for every application. The MaxiHero offers an impressive lifting height capability, while the MediHero offers excellent all round capabilities. The MiniHero is perfect for smaller rooms and compact environments.
The safe working load (SWL) of these hoists ranges from 135 kg (21 stone) to 175 kg (27 1/2 stone)
In addition to being strong and silent , as a result of its high quality Linak motors the Hero will serve you for many years due to its exceptionally ridged steel frame and quality components.
The Hero range is backed by an impressive 5 year structural warranty and a 2 year warranty on all castors and electrical parts.
