Ceilling hoist for bed access
I have just been moved into another Bungalow. The previous resident was also an MS sufferer who sadly died at Christmas.
She had a hoist fitted to lift her from her wheelchair, up, along and down into bed.
The proper harnesses are cleverly designed to come round the persons back, wrapping around the persons thighs and hooking them back onto the hoist, stopping your legs from flaying apart. I think this hoist will transform my sleeping habits.
According to my occupational Therapist (Sally) there is another type of sling which does not totally truss me up, which I have not had chance to try, as yet, but is only of use if you have strength in your stomach muscles.
Thanks to Sally my OT
Also thanks to my daughter for modelling the hoist shown.
