The innovative open design of the Maxi Twin® enables resident/patient transfer routines to be carried out smoothly and safely by a single caregiver, using sound ergonomic working methods.

By improving stability and weight distribution, the twin mast design also improves safety and ease of operation, and enables the handling of bariatric residents/patients, up to 182 kg (400 lbs).

The Maxi Twin is also available with extra low height castors, providing a floor clearance of only 60mm (2 3/8"). These extra low castors means the Maxi Twin can be integrated with most beds and stretchers currently available on the market.

Compatible slings

With maximum flexibility, this lift can be configured for use with clip slings or loop slings, or for alternating between the two depending on specific needs. There are a number of different slings in our standard range.

  • Clip slings are available in a wide range of sizes, and are colour coded for easy identification. The range includes special-purpose slings for toileting, mesh slings for bathing and showering, and slings for single and double amputees.
  • The loop sling range offers standard or padded slings, with or without head support, a number of special-purpose slings and a low back alternative, which is ideal for residents/patients whose arms are best positioned outside the sling.
  • Our custom made slings and our wide range of disposable slings (flites) means there will always be an ideal solution for each resident/patient.
