What Almost No One Knows About Hoists
What Are The Benefits That You Get From Using Ceiling Track Hoist
There are a number of benefits that one can get in choosing to use a ceiling hoist instead of a mobile hoist and it will be discussed in this article.
It can be easily used
There are so many advantages in choosing to use a ceiling hoist instead of using the mobile hoist and one of these advantages is that it is a lot simple to use. It is a lot easier to use a ceiling track hoist because not like mobile hoist, it will not involve the person to push across carpet floors and moving around the obstacles in the environment like cables, furniture, rugs, and many more.
It can be handed by one carer
There is no know rule that a state mobile hoist needs to be managed by two carers, but most often mobile hoists require the use of two carers because of the mentioned challenges above. The problem with using a single carer can be seen when a patient collides with the frame of a mobile hoist, and this will probably happen if the hoists is moved while there is no one there to keep the patient steady.
The use of a ceiling track hoist for a single handed care can reduce the possible risk when hoisting is often recommended to be a more safer way.
If it there is low risk assessment, a person with a strong mobility of the upper body can perform self hoist as an option. It is important to know that self hoisting can only be possible when using a ceiling track hoist. You need to take in consideration a lot of things if you want to assess the risk of performing a self hoist, one of these is the right positioning of the track in order to facilitate a safe transfer. It is wise to give a patient the means of communication in order to avoid any danger that might happen when self hoisting, an example for this is a pendant alarms on the neck of the patient. If the patient really wants to self hoist, it is smart to think about the safety of the procedure and try to modify a few parts of the hoist in order to avoid possible dangers that might happen.
You can park a ceiling hoist easily of anyone’s way if you are not using it. The problem with a mobile hoist is that it would take up a lot of storage room if it is not used.
A ceiling track hoist is less imposing for a patient.
Using a mobile hoist can be a little intrusive especially when it is moved towards you, and I know that for most of the people who have tried being hoisted, this is agreeable. The personal space of the patient is always important for the comfort of the patient, a ceiling track hoist is way less intrusive because it will only require a little space.
