Maxi Sky 2 Plus


Designed with patients and residents in mind
Patients of larger stature have the right to be treated with comfort and dignity. Maxi Sky 2 Plus makes it possible to deliver this for non-ambulatory plus-size patients (up to 454 kg/1000 lb).

Simple for the caregivers
The four point telescopic spreader bar for plus-size patients is easy to maneuver and provides automatic adjustment to the patient’s size and position. It can be used to lift, transfer, turn and reposition plus-size patients using the Arjo range of bariatric slings.

Flexibility to meet your care setting needs
The different body shapes of plus-size patients require bariatric sling solutions. Arjo has developed a range of sling types in four sizes to suit these various needs. When used in “Single Mode”, Maxi Sky 2 Plus is completely compatible with the Maxi Sky 2 slings and spreader bar portfolio, including the powered dynamic positioning system (PDPS), allowing your care setting to maximise the use of this ceiling lift system in patients of various sizes.
