The Astor-Bannerman A2B overhead ceiling track hoist is one of the smallest professional-use hoists on the market. Helping to reduce carer back strain, this ceiling hoist makes patient transfer easier from wheelchair to bath and changing area, or even room to room, whilst preserving the dignity of the user. A unique dynamo gravity powered charging system within the Astor-Bannerman A2B ceiling hoist means the unit is automatically charged when in use and can remain charged for more than 150 lifts. The A2B ceiling hoist also has an in built emergency lowering system. The A2B Ceiling hoist can be fitted to a curved, straight or H frame (XY) ceiling track for full room coverage, and the compact design and flexible fitting options mean this hoist can also be installed to the wall or on a free standing gantry. This makes it the ideal patent handling solution for use with assisted baths and showering/changing equipment within domestic and care home bathrooms, bedrooms, wet rooms and Changing Places toilet facilities. It is operated at the touch of a button to raise and lower the client. The motor can then either transport the client manually (2 function) or via the handset (4 function). As with all Astor-Bannerman moving and handling equipment, the A2B Ceiling hoist is available with a wide range of options, accessories and slings, and each hoist is made to measure meaning your equipment will be tailored to suit your individual needs.
