Designed for use in smaller facilities or at home, the compact Minstrel™ will lift residents/patients weighing up to 190 kg (419 lbs), but thanks to its large diameter, low friction castors, it is still easy to move and manoeuver.

The Minstrel has a solid hanger bar assembly that will prevent the resident/patient from swinging or swaying, adding to their overall safety and sense of security.
