Product Description

The Mackworth Essentials CT is a lifting aid that makes it possible to move people with limited mobility and is designed to provide comfort and support to the client during the transfer.

This easy-to-use ceiling track hoist reduces the risk and strain to caregivers and is perfect for everyday use in both professional and homecare environments. A considerable benefit of a ceiling track hoist is that it is installed at ceiling level, freeing up floor space and making it easier to get around. It can be installed across multiple rooms, and an h-system means you can access the whole floor space. This makes it an ideal and effective way to lift and transfer people.

The hoist features a wired electric handset and a lifting range of up to 2100mm. The Mackworth Essentials CT should have a suitable fixed ceiling track system and a sling. It can lift patients to 200kg and offer complete flexibility with a range of track layouts available.

We design, assemble and test the Mackworth Essentials CT in the UK and are proud to have been certified via TUV on appropriate standards.

The hoist should be used with a sling. Mackworth, Prism and Care-ability branded slings provide excellent levels of comfort and support to the patient and are recommended for use with the Mackworth Essentials CT. Please look at the user manual for the full range of suitable slings.
