Maxi Sky 1000

Bariatric ceiling lift system for dignified transfers

Arjo's Maxi Sky® 1000 offers a complete ceiling lift system specifically designed to facilitate safe and dignified transfers of non-ambulatory bariatric (plus-size) residents/patients.

The sophisticated and easy-to-operate system allows a single caregiver to carry out transfers using the handheld control unit without stress or strain, and with no manual lifting.

  • The Maxi Sky 1000 allows safe, comfortable and dignified transfers of bariatric residents/patients. The lift cassette can be installed on a semi-permanent gantry or a permanent ceiling-mounted straight track. There is a comprehensive range of bariatric loop and clip slings, which can be attached to the four-point spreader bar.
  • The Maxi Sky 1000 is easy  to operate, with programmable lifting speed and spreader bar height regulation via the handheld control unit. Several features, such as a brake, lowering system and cord-pull stopping device provide added security for the resident/patient in the event of an emergency.
  • The lift is always ready for use and the immediate electronic soft-start and soft-stop means there are no delays or overruns, ensuring the lift can always be stopped in exactly the right position.
