Floor Hoists Emu Hoist


Floor hoists are a flexible and portable way of moving non or partially-weight-bearing people from place to place given limited distances.

Mobility Plus can offer a wide range of floor-hoists sourced from our network of providers of disability equipment. All comply with International Standard ISO 10535 for their rated capacity and have emergency stop and lowering capabilities.

The central mast can be removed from the base for easy transportation and all hoists are rechargeable from mains electricity supply.

These hoists are the workhorses that help prevent handling injury to care-givers and preserve the dignity of non-weight bearing people.


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 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.

The Emu Hoist is cleverly designed and made in Australia to fit into the special need category of people who can partially weight-bear.
