Wymo Universal Sling Hoist

Universal Sling Hoist

This Universal Sling Hoist has many applications.

It can be used as an extra stable bed to chair hoist or a Pool Hoist for a person who has difficulty using standard hoists.

The carer positions the sling around the user of the hoist whilst seated in the wheelchair or a poolside chair. Lower the spreader bar and attach the sling. Using the control pendant raise the hoist until the user of the hoist is clear, pivot the hoist out and over the pool. Lower the user into the pool at which time the sling can be removed.

The Universal Sling Hoist can also be used for transferring a person from a wharf into a boat.

  • • Comfortable easy access for pool, spa, bed, bath or boat
  • • Motor unit rotates 360 degrees
  • • A simple design, with a very powerful motor and winch unit that will lift up to 135 kg.
  • • Easy installation and removable post
  • • Minimal maintenance as solar power is used to recharge the hoist’s self contained battery
  • • 24 month parts warranty
