Maxi Sky 440 - The ultra-light portable ceiling lift system

The ultra-light Maxi Sky 440® is an easy-to-operate portable ceiling lift system that allows a single caregiver to perform transfers using a handset control, without stress or strain, and with no manual lifting.

As it is easy to move around and quick to attach to a gantry or track, this portable system can be rapidly set up wherever patient handling is required. Maxi Sky 440 is the ideal choice for healthcare facilities where flexibility is a high priority.

Features & Benefits

Smooth operation

The controls are easily accessible on the handheld control unit and the front of the lift cassette. The electronic soft-start and soft-stop makes it easy for the caregiver to ensure the lift can always be stopped smoothly and safely in exactly the right position.

Built-In safeguards

Features such as a brake, manual lowering system and stopping device safeguard the resident/patient in the event of an emergency. A power limiter prevents lift use when the battery is low.

Simple maintenance

Changing the battery in the lift cassette is easy and requires only a screwdriver. A red light on the lift cassette alerts the caregiver when servicing is required. The modular design means replacement components can be simply snapped into place.

Full range of slings

A complete range of loop slings is available for use on the two-point spreader bar. The wide-set sling hooks make transfers more comfortable for the resident/patient. An additional strap, known as the Tarzan hook, allows smooth and easy transfers between track systems or rooms.

On track

The tight radius of the curved track sections enables layouts with superior space utilization. The track sections fit together using a unique pin-locking system, and once in place, the seamless joints provide a smooth ride for the resident/patient during lateral transfers.
