Maxi Sky 2

Comprehensive ceiling lift system for safe, dignified resident/patient handling

The Maxi Sky® 2 is a ceiling lift in Arjo's ever-evolving Maxi Sky® range that further improves the comfort for the patient during a transfer and also provides a more efficient and safe working environment for the care giver.

The Maxi Sky 2 is always ready to use and with its new software combined with the colour display, it proactively informs the caregiver the status of the lift.

  • The extensive spreader bar portolio, together with Quick-Connect™ enables the caregiver to carry out more optimised resident/patient transfers
  • The new software, together with the colour LCD display enables a better interaction between the hoist. The display clearly informs the caregiver of battery status, maintenance requirements and any possible misuse or malfunctions.
  • Easy access to internal components enables fast on-site servicing and maintenance - minimizing downtime and reducing operating costs
  • Simple plug-in upgrades, Maxi Sky® 2 is designed for simple on-site upgrades, such as adding Powered DPS, Infrared Remote (IR) and Enhanced Charging System (ECS)
  • Flexible Safe Working Load (SWL) can be adjusted to 272 kg (600 lbs), 200 kg (440 lbs) or 120 kg (265 lbs) to suit the structure of your care facility
