OT200 Ceiling Hoist OpeMed’s Ceiling Hoist charges itself whenever in use so that downtimes never a problem; this reduces running costs by up to 25%. An X-Y system such as this is often used in wet rooms where full room coverage is required for many points such as toileting, washing and drying. The system can notably be used either manually or via the hand control system depending on the amount of support required by the user.

Shower Trolley (Fully height adjustable) The OpeMed Shower Trolley used in Tesco’s is hydraulic foot operation and can be moved to anywhere in the room via the 4 castor wheels. The unit offers a waterproof bench for changing and stretching as well as the option to shower on it too. This unit has a fold-down rail for the carer so that full access to the user is enabled.


To meet the accessibility standards, OpeMed installed:

  • OT200 Ceiling Hoist System with auto charging on XY Frame
  • Height Adjustable Shower Trolley
  • Toilet with Grab Rails
  • Privacy Screen
