This topic includes hoists that are designed to provide assistance with moving a person with reduced mobility from one place to another. Different types of hoists are used depending on the users needs and can assist with safety for carers.


It is recommended that prior to using hoists, training in manual handling and the correct use of assistive devices should be undertaken. Your healthcare professional may be able to advise you where to access this training or contact LifeTec Qld or the Independent Living Centre in your state on 1300 885 886 for further information.
