There are lots of benefits to using a ceiling host. They are useful for both users and carers, as they are quick and easy to use and they don’t take up any floor space. They are also efficient, practical and they can be fitted in a few hours.
Most importantly, they give people the opportunity to live at home or attend school instead of being hospitalised. This can give the patient more independence and a higher quality of life.
However, it is important to invest in a ceiling host that comes with extra features to make it more comfortable. The Robin is the only overhead ceiling track hoist without a spreader bar, which means that it is more comfortable and dignified for patients who are using it.
Why the Robin is the Safest Patient Handling Technology
Out-dated ceiling hoists can look clinical, but the Robin is intentionally designed to have a smooth, non-clinical appearance. Because of this it is a popular choice with children and teenagers, and it is frequently used in primary schools and secondary schools. It is normally set up over the school swimming pool or in the changing rooms.
The main benefit of the Robin is that it has two parallel lifting straps instead of a traditional metal spreader bar. This means that it is more comfortable for patients who are using it. The straps are also beneficial for users with dementia, as there is less risk during the hoisting process. This is because there is no spreader bar, so the risk of injury is lowered. It also means that the patient has a greater sense of freedom.
The Robin lifting straps are particularly usefulin rehabilitation therapy that also includes gait training. Users suffering from problems like dementia are extremely benefited by these straps that largely reduce the risk of the overall hoisting process.In fact, the Robin lifting straps are widely used in the education sector because of its non-clinical appearance and hassle-free operation. The restless pupils are significantly benefited by these items that are most commonly applied in class bases, over swimming pools and in hygiene rooms.
The Robin comes with lots of features that ensure the safety of the patient. There is an emergency stop button, carers can lower and raise the ceiling hoist, and the sling hooks automatically lock when they are weighted.
There is also an overload security system, a low battery alert, and a soft start/stop operation that makes the journey smooth rather than shaky.
The Robin weighs 200kg/31 stone and comes with a 3-year warranty.
