Disabled Friendly Leisure Centre
Following a recent trend of disabled friendly leisure centres, a Hampshire based leisure centre has now called OpeMed in to transform the disabled changing room.
We have installed an OT200 Ceiling Hoist and Height Adjustable Changing Table into the disabled changing area. The leisure centre recognised that there was a growing need to accommodate a larger, well thought out space for disabled users and carers.
The room is designed to enable hoisting from a wheelchair onto the changing bench or toilet and offer safe changing at the correct working height for the carer. The OT200 Ceiling Hoist was an ideal practical option for the leisure centre as it has very low maintenance considerations with a 24/7 charging system and has safety “emergency” features built in to give the user as much independence as possible. As a combination, the hoist and changing table can substantially reduce transfers and provides a dignified and well thought out answer to changing for disabled users of the leisure centre (be it for swimming or other activities).
