Changing Places Specifications: Hoists

A ceiling track hoist which covers the whole room should be provided wherever possible to enable a person to be transferred conveniently between their wheelchair, the Changing Bench, WC and Washbasin. Such hoists are sometimes referred to as an X-Y System or a H System.

Full room coverage provides access to all the equipment and clear manoeuvring spacewithin the facility. A single track hoist only covers a linear route and may limit movement within a room.

Mobile hoists are not recommended. They reduce manoeuvring space, and may require an alternative space outside the toilet for Charging. They are also liable to being removed, and may cause manual handling issues for assistants unfamiliar with specific models. Mobile Hoists also usually require two carers to operate which can put single carers at risk.

  • Hoists should conform to BS EN ISO 10535. The safe working load of any hoist should be at least 200kg  (440lbs) and the structure of the walls and ceiling should be sufficient to support this. The safe working load should be displayed clearly and should be easy to read.

  • The ceiling height should be at least 2.4m. There should be sufficient space for the hoist track, motor and supporting arms above the working area.

  • All other ceiling-mounted fixtures such as lights and alarms should be shallow or recessed and positioned away from the ceiling track to avoid causing an obstruction to the hoist.

  • The hoist sling connectors should offer the broadest possible compatibility with different types of sling, including those by other manufacturers.

  • The hoist sling connectors should offer the broadest possible compatibility with different types of sling, including those by other manufacturers.

  • Hoists should incorporate the following features:

    • easy-to-use handset controls
    • auxiliary controls on the motor unit
    • soft start and soft stop motor control
    • convenient location for hoist motor
    • to be parked for battery charging
    • emergency lowering and emergency stopping device
    • optimum compatibility with a range of sling types and manufacturers.

Hoists must be regularly inspected, serviced and maintained in order to ensure safe, effective use. Hoists are subject to the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (see Health and safety legislation in Chapter 2, Legislative background and Equipment tests and maintenance in Chapter 6, management and maintenance.)

Specialist advice should be sought when selecting a hoist for installation in a CP toilet. Possible Sources of advice include occupational therapists, the Changing Places Consortium and Assist UK.
