With maximum space for the client, the Invacare Birdie hoists offer a truly comfortable lift and transfer to and from beds, chairs or even the floor. Ideal for use in domestic and residential care environments, the hoists are designed to fold and unfold easily without the need for tools.
For maximum security, the folding mechanism has a safety system. Both the Birdie and Birdie Compact lifters are CE-certified in line with the Medical Device Directive 93/42/ECC. To ensure they comply with EN ISO 10535 (the European standard for hoists) the hoists have been rigorously tested both by Invacare and the German TÜV institute, an accredited external body.
The high boom maximises space for the client even when the hoist is in its highest position. This gives an ergonomic lift and transfer as the client can be easily rotated 360°, which makes positioning much easier for the carer. The optimisation of space allows increased space in front of the actuator, reducing the risk of injury to the client’s knees and feet. Handling the hoist has been made as smooth and easy as possible as the hoist can easily be folded and unfolded without the need for tools. Birdie hoists take up minimal space when stored and are easy to push and transport. If required, the mast and boom can also be easily detached from the base for transportation (no tools required).
