Safe Patient Handling – Hoist / Slings

We are a main dealer for Invacare who supply our Safe Patient Handling Equipment

One of the greatest concerns regarding patient lift systems is patient safety and correct positioning. Built with high-quality materials, the Invacare patient lifters and overhead hoists make patient transfers easy, convenient and safe for both the patient and the carer. The Invacare product line includes electric and hydraulic systems, stand assistance lifts for individuals with some weight-bearing capacity and patient lifting hoists that accommodate individuals weighing up to 200 kilos, as well as a range of slings and accessories to adapt to all the specific needs of each patient and carer. The correct use of these systems reduces the risk of injury for both patients and caregivers, while affording the patient dignity, comfort and safety.

When selecting a patient lift system, it is essential to consider the physical ability of the patient.

The Invacare Stand Assist (ISA) range features lifts for independent individuals who need some degree of assistance to stand up, with compact and lighter systems for those who can bear some weight. These lifts are user-friendly and ideal for family member caregivers, as they are lightweight and can be disassembled and easily transported without the use  of tools.

The Invacare Robin is a ceiling hoist that is easy to operate and ideal for use in a variety of care settings. It is important to note that all Invacare hoists can be paired with a range of high quality slings and accessories, for specific needs of each patient and carer.

Ceiling Hoist Tracks

Robin is an excellent ceiling hoist, carefully designed to provide the most innovative way of transfer with care for nursing staff. Users can enjoy great comfort with the Invacare Robin ceiling hoist. It comes with a two-strap design that gives unprecedented stability during transfer. The smooth soft start function makes positioning gentler, and the two-speed motor reduces the amount of time required for the transfer. The strap only configuration eliminates the need for a spreader bar of any size, adapting automatically to the weight and shape of the client.


The Invacare Birdie EVO and Birdie EVO Compact are specially designed to offer a comfortable lift and transfer to or from beds, chairs, or even the floor. Ideal for use in domestic and residential care environments, the hoists are designed to fold and unfold easily without the need for tools.

Birdie EVO provides comfort and ease of use. Invacare’s patient lifting equipment maximises space for the client even when the hoist is in its highest position. This gives an ergonomic lift, and transfer, as the client can be easily rotated 360°, which makes positioning much easier for the carer.

Ease of handling is another notable feature the hoist has been made as smooth and easy as possible and can easily be folded and unfolded without the need for tools. It takes up minimal space when stored and  easy to push and transport. If required, the mast and boom can also be easily detached from the base for easy transportation without any tools required.


The Invacare range of slings are specially made to provide optimal positioning and ease of application.  The slings provide a safe and comfortable transfer solution for several types of physical disability. This selection of high-quality slings have been developed in collaboration with Physiotherapists to ensure exceptional functionality. The slings have a range of adjustments to meet the specific needs of individuals. All slings feature a green label on the back with detailed illustrations on how to position the sling according to the spine of the patient. This is intended to help caregivers position the sling correctly. The Invacare range of Slings includes the following:

Universal High Sling – This supports the whole body and the head, giving the user a comfortable and slightly reclined position. The Universal High Sling is typically used for those who have limited control of the head, trunk or hips – or for transfers to and from a lying position.

Universal Low Sling – Supports the hips and lower back. The Universal Low sling can be used for those who have some trunk control and full head control.

Dress Toileting Sling – There are two toilet transfer slings available; with or without head support. Both models come with a belt for increased support around the body and for safe positioning.

Easy-fit Sling – Supports the whole body and the head, thus suited for users with the most challenging physical disabilities. The Easy-fit sling is also well-suited for amputees.

Amputee Sling – This model is specially designed for the safe transfer of users with single or double amputations. The sling affords the user comfortable support in a slightly reclined position
