A Buying Guide for Standing Hoists
Below is an introduction to Standing Hoists. They are highly specialised pieces of equipment and it is important the user has a good understanding of what they do and how they work.

What is a Standing Hoist?

Standing hoists comprise a mobile unit with a footplate that is operated by a carer and requires the person that is being lifted to have the ability to stand and the ability to follow instructions.

The hoist is used with a different style of sling to a mobile hoist and the hoist is positioned by the carer in front of the person to be lifted. The sling is then attached behind them and they are brought into a standing position. This style of hoist is useful when toileting because the person is in a supported standing position on the hoist so there is easier access to clothes for toileting.

Please note

Standing Hoists can be an invaluable aid to safe patient handling. Co-op Mobility recommend seeking advice from a suitably qualified person to ensure that you purchase the correct equipment for your particular needs. Standing hoists need to be serviced and regularly maintained by a competent person.
