The fundamental aim of the MaxiMove® is to be “best at the basics” - a safer, more efficient solution for the basic resident/patient handling tasks, i.e. lifting and repositioning.

The system offers two unique features: the Stable Vertical System (SVS) and the battery-powered Dynamic Positioning System (DPS). Combined, these two systems create an extremely safe and comfortable sling lift for the entire transfer process, from the initial lift through to effortless fine-tuning in order to find the resident's/patient’s most comfortable position.
