Olympian 150kg Lifting Hoist
The Olympian 150 Kg hoist the most common of the Olympian range , designed and manufactured by UK company Autochair.
The Olympian range comes in 3 capacities. 100, 150 & 200 kg .
The unique feature of the Olympian is that the main lifting boom can easily be removed leaving only the attachment brackets in the car. Rather than have a lifting strap the Olympian hoists incorporate the use of electric actuators. I have likened this to robotic arms on a space station.
The Olympian hoists utilize 4 way function, UP/DOWN + IN/OUT a range of specific scooter brackets are available making ease of use a major feature.
The car featured is a 2014 Kia Carnival. The scooter itself weighs in at just under 100KG so we opted for the 150 KG hoist just in case the owner wanted to lift any shopping etc with the scooter.
Bruno 6900 Lifting Hoist
The Bruno 6900 hoist is big brother to all other hoists. Perfect for heavy Power Chairs.
The Bruno 6900 has a massive lifting capacity of 181 KG. The biggest feature is the telescopic head, making manoeuvring into tight spaces easier and also has the ability to lower objects closer to the side of the vehicle.
The hoist is a true 6 way function- UP/DOWN + IN/OUT Rotation + IN/OUT lifting arm. The benefit of the Bruno 6900 over its competitors with simular functions is the ability for the telescopic head to retract without the item that is being lifted altering heights. The only negative is that due to its size and strength the hoist isn’t easily removable from the car.
The Hoist featured is installed in a Toyota Van. The new CTM HS2800 Power Chair was supplied by Walk on Wheels Victoria Point QLD
Automobility Docking Station
The Automobility Docking station is designed and manufactured by Automobility and is a common accessory in their Van fit outs for personal use.
The positioning is traditionally set to suit the occupant in the exact location that they are most comfortable in, so therefore we do measurements’ to suit.
Docking stations take away the need for the often hard to get for the carer restraint straps. The wheel chair can be simply driven or pushed into the Dock. An audible click will be heard and the wheel chair is secured. Release is a simple push on a button (mounted conveniently near the rear ramp) and the chair is ready to come out. In the event of a flat battery etc, a manual release lever is integrated into the design.
The Docking station can be installed on both manual and electric wheel chairs.
We supply and install 3 types, The Automobility Doc, the Freedom Doc and the Q straint QLK. The Automobility and Freedom Motors docking stations are normally installed on the specific vans and the respective wiring is installed at the factory when the van is being modified.
The Evo Turn out seat is manufactured by Autoadapt.
The Evo is the bench mark within the Turn out type seat market. The Evo enables the seat to turn out of the vehicle and lower making transferring to a wheel chair far easier. The Evo is fully programmable and just by simply holding a button the process happens.
The design incorporates unlimited recline, small foot rest. Forward and backward movement of the seat .
Dues to space confinements in most instances the original seat will have to be removed and replaced by a more compact type. Two types are available, the Standard BEV design or an upmarket Recaro type.
The option of armrests is available.
The Evo is possible to be installed on all vehicles due to limited door opening space . Please contact us to check if your car can be adapted.
Another wonderful option is the Autoadapt Carony. Utilizing a specific wheel chair base, the occupant can be transferred straight from the car to the wheel chair without leaving the seat.
