Oxford Advance Compact Hoist

The Oxford Advance passive style mobile compact hoist is a compact fold-away device, perfect for areas that have limited space. Despite its compact footprint, the hoist has a safe working capacity of 155kg (24st). It is more than capable of performing a wide range of transfers and tasks, safely. Some of these include:

– Bed to Chair
– Chair to Chair
– Floor to Chair
– Chair to bath

Cleverly designed adjustable angled legs allow the compact hoist to get closer to wide furniture. It can help get closer to other obstacles it may encounter as well. It is ideal when deploying the lift alongside large chairs, wheelchairs, and bulky commodes.

An optional 4-point positioning cradle ensures full compatibility with all Oxford passive slings, both loop and clip fixings. The Advance is highly adaptable in a variety of environments, whether it’s being used to transfer from the floor, a low bed, wheelchair, or toilet, this compact folding hoist copes with ease.

One of the Oxford Advance’s main features is its ability to fold, allowing relative ease of storage and transportation. Requiring no tools to achieve its folded position, the compact hoist will then stand on end. Additionally, it will also fit into the boot of most family saloon cars, perfect for taking on holiday or for day trips away.

The integrated Smart Monitor diagnostic control pack has a lift cycle counter, overload detection, and a service alert to help ensure your lift is kept in optimum condition for longer. Further safety systems including manual emergency lower, emergency stop and on-board controls ensure the Advance is one of the safest compact lifts available.
