Maxi Move - A mobile passive lift for demanding care environments

The MaxiMove® provides safer, more comfortable and ergonomic resident/patient handling, while making care routines smoother and more efficient.

This battery-powered passive sling lift allows a single caregiver to safely manage a wide range of resident/patient handling routines. With unrivaled flexibility, stability and reliability, the Maxi Move is the optimum lift for intensive use in the most demanding care environments.

With a new built-in electronic scale and a handheld control unit with a display, MaxiMove helps the caregiver provide a higher quality of care. Simple instructions for use, with a visual guide on the mast, provide further convenient assistance to the caregiver.

Available in an extra low height castor version, with a ground clearance of only 2 3/8" (60 mm), Maxi Move is compatible with most low clearance beds and stretchers.

Equipped for diverse healthcare situations

The MaxiMove is a mobile passive lift designed for people who either have no capacity to support themselves or who are completely dependent. It provides optimum support for these patients in a wide range of healthcare situations.

MaxiMove can:

  • Comfortably and securely transfer patients ranging in size from pediatrics to bariatrics – weighing a maximum of 500 lbs (227 kg)
  • Handle routine tasks such as lifting, transfers and repositioning of patients
  • Be adjusted quickly for different patients or care routines – making it ideal for facilities with a wide spectrum of patient ages, heights and weights
  • Deal with the unforeseen – a patient can be safely lifted from the floor in the event of a fall
  • Support stretchers – making it an ideal choice for supine lifting of patients in acute care
  • Be equipped with an extended jib – for optimum transfers to and from bulky wheelchairs in special care facilities
  • Be fitted with a two point hanger bar and repositioning sling – to allow for safe and easy positioning or turning of patients in bed
  • Be used with optimum standard or special-purpose slings, such as amputee and bariatric slings, or mesh clip or loop slings - for a range of routines such as toileting, bathing, showering, and stretcher slings

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.
