For a market leading, aesthetically pleasing overhead hoist system, you need to look no further. The GoLift overhead hoist boasts excellent design features that will benefit users anywhere, whether in a private dwelling, changing places location, school or care home environment.

The GoLift, which has recently won a Bronze award (Healthcare Design 2017), combines compact design with easy maintenance and flexibility. An example of this is that the hoist can be specified with its own GoLift track, or retro fitted to other manufacturers track; this is a huge benefit if you are looking to upgrade your hoist units without having to carry out extensive work.

The slimline design means you get more lifting height, which is ideal in areas with limited ceiling heights.

When you look under the cover of the compact GoLift unit, you will find an impressive set of all metal gears and state-of-the-art battery technology that allow the caregiver to safely, and effortlessly, transfer a patient weighing up to 50st on a single lift. For larger patients, you may combine two compact GoLift 700 systems to obtain a lifting capacity of 72st. 

An optional Power Traverse Unit can also be purchased, and is compatible with the GoLift 400 and 700 units. An innovative power system clips between the rail and the unit for powered traversing.Power for the unit is obtained from the hoist batteries, so a separate power cable is not needed. The handset is equipped with extra buttons for controlling left and right movements.

Here are some of the benefits of the GoLift 

  • Smallest ceiling hoist on the market, giving additional lift height and aesthetically pleasing finish – and weighs as little as 4.8kg!
  • Four weight capacities – 28st, 32st, 50st and 72st (Tandem Lift)
  • Hygienic design
  • Capacitive touch handset – makes it much easier for users with limited use of their hands
  • Very easy maintenance – saving time and money
  • In track charging option
  • All metal gears, for longevity and reliability
  • Different track options, including bends, gate systems and three depths to allow longer spans.

  • GoLift track can also be recessed or inset into your ceilings – speak to an advisor for further details.

A massive thank you to the engineer who visited and fitted the ceiling track hoist. The speed, tenderness and professionalism shown is very much appreciated by us all and something I will never forget.

Your presentation was excellent and very well received by all attending .

Demonstration, Private OT- Warwickshire

Thanks for attending our CPD session. The GoLift was and has been very well received by my OT Colleagues. It's good to see there are other more innovative products entering the market place as there needs to be a more visionary approach not only in product design but also in the outlook of Local Authorities and the NHS in providing the very best that is currently available rather than the tried and Trusted approach which often seems to take precedence. Cost doesn't seem to be a factor so it's just a question of ensuring the right product is made available and having sessions like the one on Monday provides us as Practitioners with the opportunity to become more aware of what is current and available for our clients.
