What is an XY Ceiling Hoist System or H System
XY Ceiling Hoist System or H System
We often get asked what is an XY Ceiling Hoist or H System (also known as an XY Overhead Hoist or an XY Hoist).
The simplest way to explain is an Ceiling Hoist motor that drives along a moving rail, that in turn slides up and down 2 parallel rails, allowing patient transfer anywhere within an “H” shape (hence the H system)…
An XY or H System Overhead Hoist is the ideal solution for assisted bathrooms, bedrooms or living areas where there are multiple transfer points
(for instance in the bathroom the bath/shower, changing table and transfer area or in the bedroom the bed, armchair and transfer area).
- Allows transfer anywhere within a square (H shape)
- Saves time with quick transfer
- Allows for flexibility in furniture location (i.e. future-proofs the room)
- Can connect several rooms together (e.g. bedroom and bathroom)
- Ceiling or wall mounted
- Portable or Fixed Ceiling Hoist
The parallel rails of the XY Ceiling Hoist System can be embedded into the ceiling for optimum aesthetics.
XY Ceiling Hoist Systems or H Systems are flexible, quick and easy to use and allow transfer anywhere within a square.
