Abacus was selected to specify, supply, install and commission nine Shuttle 200 ceiling track hoists. These rail and motor unit systems provide powered assistance for carers when transferring patients around the bedroom, commonly from bed-to-wheelchair/bathing transit chair. The hoists combine with a variety of slings so that appropriate support is provided to every user.
