Maxi Sky 1000

Bariatric ceiling lift system for dignified transfers

The Maxi Sky® 1000 offers a complete ceiling lift system specifically designed to facilitate safe and dignified transfer of non-ambulatory bariatric residents/patients.

The sophisticated and easy-to-operate system allows a single caregiver to perform transfers using the hand control 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

This comprehensive system has been specifically designed to provide safe and comfortable transfers for bariatric residents/patients.
