  • Varied Patient Profiles: A broad spectrum of patient needs creates a need for adaptable solutions that can handle multiple tasks and satisfy a variety of patient requirements.
  • Timely Action: In healthcare, efficiency is of the essence, assuming patient safety and well being are well catered for alongside. Every minute is crucial to ensure every patient receives the dedicated care and support they require.

The Oxford Advance Lift: Bridging the Gaps

Against this backdrop, how does the Oxford Advance help address these challenges and demands?

  • Unwavering Safety: The Advance has a number of safety mechanisms for emergency situations, such as manual emergency lower, emergency stop and sling retaining clips to avoid inadvertent detachment during use. In addition, the onboard, intelligent control system provides overload protection, lift cycle counter, countdown timer and reminder to schedule important service and maintenance inspections, helping to ensure your lift remains in tip-top condition for longer.
