Hoists for wheelchairs and mobility scooters across Bournemouth and Poole area
Here at Sole Motion Mobility, our purpose is a straightforward one – to get as many of our customers on the move as possible, to return to them the independence that they may have felt lacking thanks to their various mobility issues. Obviously a key part of that is the high-quality new and used mobility scooters that we have in our ever-changing stock. However, that is only part of the equation. While our extensive range of mobility scooters are excellent for short journeys and travel around your local area (be that Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch, Ferndown, or Wimborne), what happens if you want to travel further afield, either in your own car, or as passenger in someone else’s?
This is where mobility scooter hoists come into their own.
Mobility scooter hoists
Mobility scooter hoists are mechanical devices designed to lift your mobility scooter from the floor, up to a level with the boot of your car, and then swing the device inwards, to deposit the vehicle there. They come in two main varieties…
Two-way hoists are ideal for lighter mobility scooters and for wheelchairs. The machine is lifted up and down on a powered arm, but swung into the car manually. This means that the operator needs to be able to stand unaided and push the hoist without support.
Four-way hoists work in much the same way as their two-way counterparts, only they use the powered hoist to complete all movement – up and down from the floor and in and out of the vehicle. Normally used for heavier mobility scooters, or by customers who lack the strength or mobility to operate the swinging mechanism unaided.
Autochair Smart Lifter boot Hoist
Autochair’s range of Smart Lifter boot hoists are fully-automated devices designed to lift your mobility scooter into the car at the touch of a button. Even the most lightweight of mobility vehicles can prove awkward to lift in and out of your car boot, so these Smart Lifters can really make the world of difference. The Smart Lifter comes in a number of ranges, each designed with a particular size of mobility device in mind. The LM range is suitable for lighter and smaller vehicles, with weight limits of 40kg and 80kg; the LC Range is for slightly larger machines, with lifting capacities of 80kg and 100kg; and the LP range can handle even the biggest of mobility scooters, with hoists bearing weights of 125kg, 150kg and 200kg.
Autochair Smart Transfer Person Lift
The Smart Transfer person lift is a simple-to-install chair lift designed to transfer a wheelchair user from their chair to a regular car seat with ease and dignity. Deceptively strong, this lightweight lift is capable of lifting up to 23.5 stone in weight and is remarkably versatile. Not only can it be attached to both 3- and 5-door cars, it can also be installed with a variety of lifting slings, depending on your particular mobility concerns.
