Housing providers accommodating people with mobility issues are being offered a new solution to moving within a property, courtesy of Closomat.
What is offered is a discreet, ceiling mounted transfer system that can enable a resident to remain in their home when their mobility is impaired.
The hoist is designed so that the carer can effortlessly move them anywhere around the room, or even from one room to another, without having to manually lift them.
It can be installed in the property either as it is being built, or fitted retrospectively and even if the ceiling itself isn’t strong enough to support the load, the system can still be fitted, weight-bearing on discreet floor-mounted legs.
“Potentially, it’s a strong selling point that the home can be adapted if needed in the future. The fact that lifetime homes criteria have been amended to include the need to provide for subsequent installation of a hoist, particularly between bedroom & bathroom, shows the need for such equipment among our elderly population,” observes Robin Tuffley, Closomat marketing manager.
“It is logical that supported, assisted, and retirement living developments address the hoist issue, as a proportion of their residents will most likely need help with lifting at some stage, if they are to remain in their own home.
“By working with us, the developer has the assurance of partnering with a British, family-owned company, that is the only one in its sector to have UK based customer technical & sales support, and, in-house, a nationwide team of installers and engineers.”
