In order to remove the unnecessary strain from the carers and for the easy transfer of someone with limited mobility, hoists a mobility equipment is used.\nBroad classification of hoists is as follows:\n Mobile hoists: These are self contained hoists and do not require any track installation. These are flexible to use for shorter distances.\n Ceiling hoists: These hoists run along permanent fixed tracks. Hoists to be used on this track can be fixed or can be detached to be used on another track. These can be operated by the user independently.\n Portable overhead hoists: This is particularly suitable for situations where a hoist is required in a particular place for a short amount of time: when a disabled person is travelling, for example, or perhaps for use by health professionals working in the community.\n These mobility hoists are effective and strong but can be easily dismantled when they\'re not being used so you don\'t need to worry about storing them fully assembled.\nHowever it is quite expensive to buy these, you can use the disabled hoist hire service if you require a hoist for a few days. This facility is provided by many of the mobility equipment hire and rental companies. Every accessible accommodation will be provided with ceiling hoists facility for comfort to the disabled people and their carers. It helps the carers avoid bending, straining and lifting as these hoists are strong and easy to use. So, if you are facing any difficulty when away from home, why not use disabled hoist hire facility to have a careful and safe movement from one place to the other.\n

beds for people who are not mobile. In these beds, all bed functions are electrically
