CARLO Alu, Classic 230

High capacity Loop Sling Hoist

The CARLO Alu, Classic 230 patient hoist has been developed specifically for lifting, repositioning and transferring residents who are limited in their mobility and have a maximum patient weight of up to 507 lbs. Due to the special construction made of aluminium and steel components, the hoist is very easy to manoeuvre but nonetheless provides the stability required for the care of heavyweight residents.

The extra wide sling bow made of stainless steel is suitable for all loop slings; it is provided with a safety locking mechanism to attach the slings and is characterised by a patent-pending adjustment option to reduce rotation. Along with a huge lifting range, the CARLO Classic Alu, Classic 230 also convinces through its large and free range of rotation. This allows for the resident to be easily brought into the desired nursing position, without him hitting his legs or knees.
