The passive twin mast sling lifter with a small footprint, long reach and a high lifting stroke for flexible, safe and comfortable care.

The Maxi Twin® Compact opens up new possibilities for improving resident/patient handling in care settings where space is limited.

The Maxi Twin Compact provides good access to limited spaces in care facilities, and the short chassis legs and compact design offer excellent manoeuvrability. This combination of compactness and manoeuvrability means the lifter can often be used in settings that are inaccessible to larger lifters.
