Freeway have provided bespoke ceiling track hoist systems for many thousands of users with safe reliable operation over many years.

The track systems are totally flexible and give endless design possibilities so you can choose the configuration that is perfect for you.

Freeway Transactive

Freeway Transactive Hoist
  • The hoist attaches permanently to its own specially designed attractive white aluminium track with a range of track configurations that can cover several rooms providing greater flexibility.
  • It is available as a powered traverse model as well as manual traverse, so a user can propel themselves along the track using the handset.
  • The hoist unit stays at ceiling height, the user is not obstructed by the hoist unit at any time.
  • Easily recharged by docking at the charging bay at the end of the track.
  • Even on a manual traverse, the amount of bodily force required to propel the user is minimal thus reducing carer or user fatigue.
  • The hoist is suitable for long term use such as in a care home or hospital as the track is permanent and does not have to be erected every time use is required.
  • No need to unclip and move the hoist from track to track, therefore reducing risk of damage to carer or hoist.

Invacare Robin

Invacare Robin Hoist

The Invacare Robin ceiling hoist provides a unique and innovative method of transfer. The only hoist available that has ‘Dual Strap’ technology, the Robin offers a comfortable and safe transfer with optimal communication between client and carer.

When carrying out a hoist transfer there are a number of key factors to consider. These include ensuring clear and effective communication, alleviating concerns of the client as well as minimising risk.

The Robin’s unique ‘Dual Strap’ technology does not rely on a spreader bar, therefore ensuring eye contact between client and carer at all times. In addition, the Robin grants the carer fuller interaction and provides an environment where re-assurance can be provided at all times. The lack of spreader bar also removes any fears that the client may have of coming into contact with the equipment or the equipment passing their face. Risk is minimised.

The Health and Safety Executive advise that any risk associated with the client coming into contact with the spreader bar should be managed during the transfer*. The Robin’s ‘Dual Strap’ technology removes this risk completely.

The Invacare Robin has been developed with a particular emphasis on safety. In the event of an emergency situation, lowering and stop functions are standard features built into the motor unit.

The lifting mechanism also offers an overload security system. The self adjusting strap inlet allows the straps to adjust to the client’s body shape, and the centrifugal braking system ensure that the straps are synchronised for a balanced lift.

The ‘Dual Strap’ system enables the carer to attach the sling to the hoist with the minimum of effort with the added security of a simple locking mechanism.
