Cranleigh RDA – Surrey
Cranleigh RDA chose the OT200 ceiling hoists for lifting people on a 3m straight track. The hoist uses a gravity powered system to re-charge whenever in use saving both service cost and ensuring reliable start up; essential for running a busy day of riding and supporting riders with disabilities.
The organisation has over 500 groups in the UK offering a variety of activities, leading to a greater need for assistive technology for quick and easy manual transfers onto the ponies.
Why a Ceiling Hoist?
Maria and Liz from Cranleigh RDA called in OpeMed to assess the stables for a hoisting solution.
“Being able to get riders onto the ponies without our help has become very important to us as the groups have grown in size and age range” Maria, RDA.

Ceiling Hoist in Use
The hoist has been in use for a number of months and is frequently used by the ponies trained with the system.
“The hoist is a really valuable tool at our stable as it means that any disabled rider can be mounted onto the ponies”. Maria, RDA.
OpeMed have re-visited the stables to assess some of the difficulties faced when using the hoist in the stables such as height restrictions and dust issues. Download our Case Study to find our how we solved these issues.
