SEN School Ceiling Hoists – Cheshire

A leading SEN school in Cheshire has welcomed OpeMed’s OT200 Ceiling Hoist along with our moving and handling expertise to their two-phase 2014 construction project.

Our technical team was called in to redevelop the school’s current moving and handling equipment provisions and also to provide hoisting solutions for for the second-phase of new build SEN facility.

Phase-one refurbishment involved re-designing the layout of the existing assisted bathrooms in the school of 3,500sqm.
The new build phase-two has been designed to create a facility that is specialised in Special Education Needs with provisions for Autistic Disorder Spectrum throughout.

Our recommendations for both phases of the SEN project have included supplying equipment such as the OT200 Ceiling Hoist in order to provide maximum room coverage when moving a student from point A to B for changing/toileting for example.OpeMed also recommend that a height adjustable changing or showering surface is used in conjunction with the OT200 hoist to not only provide comfort for the user but also safety for carers by working at the correct height to avoid frontline back injury.
