Patient Lift Options: ARJO Lift or Hoyer Lift?
When a ceiling lift is not an option then the floor lift or sometimes called a patient lift is the alternative. Most people will call a floor lift a Hoyer Lift because that brand is one of the most common found in the market place. But just as all facial tissues are not "kleenex" neither are floor lifts. All Arjo floor lifts are designed and built to withstand the wear and tear of daily use in the hospital setting. Our Arjo lifts beat Hoyer lifts.
The fundamental aim of the Maxi move is to be "best on basics". Using the Maxi Move you gain a safer, more efficient solution for the basic tasks of patient handling - lifting and repositioning. The system offers two unique features; a Stable Vertical System and Powered or Unpowered Dynamic Positioning System (DPS), which together provide the safest, most comfortable basis for complete transfers. The lift is designed to accept clients that weigh up to 500 lbs. and offers excellent stability. The "Combi" attachment allows for smooth switching between the different spreader bars available. A built in scale is an optional item.
Available for new purchase or rental. Current Rental cost is $345.00 per month. This item is not covered by Medicare or other insurances.
The Maxi Twin is the next generation mobile lifter with a unique open, twin mast design. This design improves stability and weight distribution. The lift is available with either a powered or unpowered 4 point DPS or 3 sizes of loop spreader bars. An optional scale is also available. Designed to accept residents up to 375 lbs. the Maxi Twin can improve working conditions for caregivers and the well-being of residents by enhancing safety and comfort during everyday transfers and, should the situation arise, emergency lifting from the floor.
Being collapsible the Maxi Lite is Arjo's most portable battery operated mobile lifter. It's compact size does not detract from it being able to handle all daily lifting requirements, including lifting from the floor, with a safe working load of 350 lbs. The Maxi Lite has a built in charger allowing for easy charging and is available with a 4-point DPS or 2-point spreader bar. With the DPS it is the only lift available where the resident can be transferred to and from the passenger seat of most cars.
