Alargé Bariatric Mobile Hoist – Very heavy duty hoist for the larger user
The Alargé Hoist is one of the strongest aluminium mobile hoists available. Fold away side rails make it easier to move, and due to its aluminium construction, the weight of the Alargé Hoist is reduced to a minimum.
There are a number of accessories available for the Alargé Hoist, including Class III medical scales and a choice of spreader bars. The arms and handle are adjustable for further flexibility, so the carers minimise risk when moving the hoist.
Appropriate slings are available from Multicare including made-to-measure slings. See the Slings section here.
Adjustable side handles
The side handles can be used by carers when moving the hoist reducing manual handling risk, they can also be used for gait training in conjunction with a standing harness.
Powered leg opening
Powered leg opening reduces carer strain, making the hoist easier to move and operate – especially with larger patients.
Two speed handset
The two speed handset enables carers to operate the hoist at alternate speeds, enabling faster transfers and saving time.
Easy to change spreader bar
An innovative locking mechanism secures the spreader bar, yet is easier to change when necessary.
