The health benefits of owning a hot tub are numerous and well documented. More and more people are using them as an aid for rehab and hydrotherapy.

The problem is that the people that benefit most from this can find it very hard to get in and out of the hot tub.

At Dolphin we have several solutions to this problem in the form of a comprehensive selection of hot tub hoists. Having many different products to choose from means we can specify the best lift for the end user and their location.

For this job we specified our extended reach hoist which was originally designed to lift people onto a horse. There was no wall or suitably susbtantial structure to fit the hoists to. Consequently the client arranged for a steel RSJ to be buried in concrete to one side of the spa. We then bolted our hoist to the steel.

Usually we would supply a sling or seat sling with the hoist but on this occasion it was decided that the end user would benefit from using the Handimove body support. This drastically speeds up transfer times. The client also chose to have the hoist in a RAL colour to match their hot tub.
