Oxford Classic Mobile Hoists: Safer Care For Residents And Carers

Summary. Joerns Healthcare is one of the leading providers of patient lifting and handling equipment to the care continuum. Oxford classic mobile hoists are invaluable solutions when caring for someone, who does not have the necessary level of mobility and independence.


Some of the key tasks a hoist and sling combination can support with include:

  • Moving from a bed to a chair
  • Getting in and out of the bath
  • Toilet/commode transfers
  • Repositioning a patient

Furthermore, Oxford mobile hoists can cater for a range of moving and handling situations. In addition, they support the user to move over short distances, safely. Moreover, they also support care-givers, enabling them to care for and assist the patient in a safe and risk averse manner.

They are widely used in hospital wards, care and nursing homes as well as in an individual’s own homes. Patient lifts may be integrated as an essential part of someone’s care plan. Therefore, they can truly transform lives for the better, when used correctly.

Oxford mobile hoists have the inherent benefit of being transportable when compared to an overhead ceiling hoist. Therefore, moving them from room to room is straightforward. Oxford classic lifts can also be broken down into two parts by removing the mast from the base. This offers the option of onward transportation in vehicles, as well as more convenient storage.
