The Emu Hoist is a unique and effective standing and transfer hoist aimed at people who can partially weight-bear or who are undergoing rehabilitation.
As with the Joey Hoist, the lift and leg-opening are electrically operated via a hand control and it has a lifting capacity of 175 kilograms. The Emu Hoist is cleverly designed and made in Australia to fit into the special need category of people who can partially weight-bear.
The Emu Hoist features a flip-up footplate and knee-pad for rehabilitation standing or walking. The dual handle that the passenger can hold on to and the specialized slings provide very effective transfer lifts.
Special accessories include leg and butt straps, full support sling and transporter or toilet seats.
The rectangular steering handle is a safe and positive control for quick response.
