ARJO Maxi Twin and Maxi Twin Compact

The Maxi Twin is a simple to operate full body hoist, which is suitable for clients who are unable to support themselves by standing.

It has a powered hangar bar which is operated via a hand held control which enables routines to be carried out without any manual lifting.

The client can be gently positioned either in an upright or reclined position whilst in the sling, this increases safety and efficiency. This also provides reassurance to the client as the hangar bar is open and they are able to see the carers carrying out the transfers.
