Robin XY Ceiling Hoist

Invacare Robin Ceiling Hoist

By Hoists No Comments

We have been supplying and installing the Robin ceiling hoist for some time now. It has proved popular with a lot of OT’s that we work with.

The Robin utilises unique dual strap technology. This means they don’t need a spreader bar. Consequently the client and carer can be sure that eye contact is kept at all times. The strap system also allow the carer to attach the sling with a minimum of effort.

We have recently added the Ergolet Luna to our product portfolio. Luna Ceiling Hoists combine good looks with exceptional functionality. Their wall fixed horizontal E track helps us to fit a hoist where other conventional ceiling brackets or wall posts won’t work.

The same unit can be used as a fixed or portable ceiling hoist. This makes it a cost effective option for care facilities. As a result one lift can cover a wide range of lifting requirements. For more information on the Luna and other overhead hoists call us today on 01276 856060.

Hot Tub Restricted Mobility Access Hoist

Hot Tub Hoists

By Hoists No Comments

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.

If you would like to know more about our hot tub hoists please contact Dolphin on 01276 856060. Alternatively email your enquiry to

Dolphin have started to install the Maxi Sky hoists and we have been suitably impressed. We are pleased that the new hoist will continue to use the KWIKtrak rails. This ensures that older units can be replaced without having to install a new track system
