Comfort and ease of use combined
The high boom maximises space for the client even when the hoist is in the highest position. This gives an ergonomic lift and transfer as the client can be easily rotated 360°, which makes positioning much easier for the carer. The optimisation of space allows increased space in front of the actuator, reducing the risk of injury to the client’s knees.
Ease of handling: simple to fold, unfold and dismantle without tools
Handling the hoist has been made as smooth and easy as possible as the hoists can easily be folded and unfolded without the need for tools. Hoists take up minimal space when stored and are easy to push and transport. If required, the mast and boom can be easily detached from the base (no tools required).
TÜV-certification for maximum security
For total security, the folding mechanism has a snap-lock system, thus minimizing the risk of accident. The Birdie and Birdie Compact are CE-certified in line with the Medical Device Directive 93/42/ECC.
To ensure the hoists comply with EN ISO 10535 (the European standard for hoists) the hoist has been rigorously tested both by Invacare and the German TÜV institute, an accredited external body.
