Maxi Twin Compact

The optimum lifter for care in confined spaces

The Maxi Twin® Compact offers superior access in confined spaces.

Its remarkably small footprint enables safe everyday transfers of residents/patients in elderly care facilities and in home care, where space may be an issue.

The Maxi Twin Compact is a smaller version of the well known Maxi Twin® passive floor lifter. It incorporates all of the main features of the larger sling lifter, including its innovative twin mast design, which improves stability and weight distribution, while offering the caregiver unique accessibility for working in confined spaces.

With its remarkably small footprint, the Maxi Twin Compact enables safe, high quality care routines to be carried out in confined spaces. The Maxi Twin Compact is easy to manoeuvre in narrow corridors and turns corners smoothly without compromising the safety of the resident/patient or the working conditions of the caregiver.

The small footprint, first rate accessibility and outstanding manoeuvrability make it easier to turn into rooms through standard doorways and provide a safe ergonomic aid in small bedrooms that conventional, larger lifters cannot access.

  • Enables access to most areas where space is limited due to the lifter’s small footprint.
  • Excellent manoeuvrability.
  • Effortless, exact resident/patient positioning with minimum exertion for the caregiver due to the Powered Dynamic Positioning System (PDPS).
  • No “swing-and-sway” or pendulum motion of the spreader bar, thanks to an innovative friction disc solution.
  • Residents/patients can be lifted up off the floor without adjustments to the equipment, due to the lifter’s high lifting stroke.
  • Reassuring eye contact between the caregiver and resident/patient at all times.
  • Excellent legroom improves comfort and safety for the resident/patient.
  • A wide range of clip slings, loop slings and flites are available.

The passive twin mast sling lifter with a small footprint, long reach and a high lifting stroke for flexible, safe and comfortable care.

The Maxi Twin® Compact opens up new possibilities for improving resident/patient handling in care settings where space is limited.

The Maxi Twin Compact provides good access to limited spaces in care facilities, and the short chassis legs and compact design offer excellent manoeuvrability. This combination of compactness and manoeuvrability means the lifter can often be used in settings that are inaccessible to larger lifters.
