Maxi Twin - The innovative twin-mast passive lift
Maxi Twin® is the mobile lift known for its unique open, twin-mast design, which provides the resident/patient with an unobstructed view of the caregiver, for reassuring eye contact during transfer routines. By improving stability and weight distribution, the twin-mast design also enhances safety and ease of operation, allowing the handling of patients and residents up to 400 lbs (182 kg).
As each mast can effectively act as a separate handle, the twin-mast concept provides excellent maneuverability and control. The twin-masts or jib can be held at any point along their length for maneuvering the lift, ensuring that no matter the caregiver's height, the optimum working posture is always achievable. On the move, the lightweight unit runs on superior castors, ensuring minimum effort is needed for steering and positioning.
The Maxi Twin offers an unrivaled combination of excellent maneuverability and stability. A unique friction solution (patent pending) at the connection point of the jib and the hanger bar holds the resident stable in the sling, preventing the pendulum effect or swing-and-sway motion often associated with sling lifts. This greater stability, which only Maxi Twin can offer, increases comfort and safety for the resident/patient and caregiver during transfer routines.
