Introducing the FREEWAY Transactive Xtra Ceiling hoist
Andway Health care are pleased to introduce Freeway’s transactive Xtra ceiling track hoist. This world class design and state of the art feature provides safe, reliable, effective patient movement and handling whilst still providing residents with respect and dignity.

Why use ceiling track hoists
A ceiling track hoist is quicker and easier to use than a regular mobile hoist.
As shown in the video above you can clearly see the host is a low profile, slim line hoist which is clearly unobtrusive (taking up no floor space) yet it provides a much greater lifting height than any alternative option.
The Electronically powered hoist is controlled through an ergonomic handset making it effortless to transfer the resident to the required position, in the contrast to a mobile hoist where a large amount physical force is required from the carer.
The Tracking system
The tracking system can be tailored to the needs and features of both the room and the resident.
The simplest type of tracking system available is the single track system: this a straight line tracking system which transfers the patient from one defined pick up point to another.
Multi-room tracking system also available: this system includes turntable tables and 90° bends, allowing the track to be installed into various rooms.

All of these tracking systems can be visually explained via the videos below produced by Prism Medical.
Unique display & diagnostics
The hoist has a small display monitor which can highlight useful information including:
