Occupational Therapists are Your In-House Experts
Occupational Therapists are health care professionals that specialise in guiding service users and care facilities on best practices. Their expertise can provide a holistic perspective on what equipment is best suited for your service user’s needs. Whenever possible, it is best to seek your occupational therapist’s sound advice on what mobile hoist is best.
An OT will not only be able to advise on what mobile hoist is best, but also what accessories are needed. They can help to guide you on what type of spreader bar is appropriate for the sling attachment required, and what lifting capacity is needed in the safe transfer of your service user.
Other Considerations You Can Make
When looking for a mobile hoist for your service user or care facility, it is important to specify what type of sling your facility will use so that you may specify whether your hoist will have a loop or clip fixing. Loop fixings are potentially more user friendly and much more standard across the market.
Helpful Tip: Flat or failing batteries are so often a cause of fault when owning a mobile hoist. It is important to have a systematic method to the charging of your hoist’s batteries in place.
