The Oxford® Advance folding mobile patient lift is one of the most functional and stylish in its class today. Especially suited to home care and small nursing institutions where space sometimes is simply not available, the Advance also allows a user to travel outside of the confines of their own home.
The Advance lends itself to those environments where space and storage are at a premium. It is especially useful in home settings and small nursing institutions where space sometimes is simply not available.
The Advance’s incredible lifting range ensures it can cope easily with the most critical of transfers. Examples include:
- Chair to chair transfers
- Bed to chair transfers
- Floor to chair transfers
- Chair to bath transfers
Compact folding design
Unlike other products on the market, the Advance needs NO tools or special attachments to achieve its compact folded position. This functionality gives active users the option to travel outside the confines of their own home.
Triangular folded design: This useful feature ensures two very important functions :
- The lift stands unaided when being stored or transported.
- The lift can be left safely in the knowledge that it will not become unstable whilst not in use.
In addition to its easy folding capability, the Advance can be disassembled in two parts to limit the lifting weight during transport.
Ergonomic design considerations
The Advance was designed with the five key principles of moving and handling in mind:
- Get close to the load
- Use a wide stable base
- Ensure a comfortable firm grasp
- Keep spine close to neutral
- Make sure movement is smooth
This direct correlation ensures Oxford’s lift designs are simple, safe and above all comfortable to use.
‘This view is shared by our clinical consultant team, who have assisted us in conducting detailed usability surveys to ensure the Advance meets the true needs of the patient, carer and the environment in which it operates.’
Smart™ Monitor : control and diagnostic system
The Smart™ Monitor control system records the exact amount of work completed by the actuator each and every time the lift is used, regardless of a patient’s weight or lift height covered. The intelligent system advises the user to schedule key maintenance helping to ensure your lift remains in optimum condition.
- Identifies total lift actuations and work completed
- Identifies lift overloads (exceeding SWL)
- Identifies service interval periods
- Increases patient safety and product service life
‘Swan-neck’ leg design
The Advance’s unique ‘swan-neck’ leg design allows the lift to get even closer to the widest of obstacles. This is especially useful when encountering large chairs, bulky commodes and wheelchairs.
The ‘swan-neck’ design also ensures that the patient feels safe and secure during the transfer process.
