Some people with disabilities are unable to transfer without human and mechanical assistance. Ceiling hoists are systems assisting people to transfer between two places and protecting carers who have high risk of injuries during the transfer activity. This publication provides information on the requirements for the installation of ceiling hoists in homes and on the personal and environmental characteristics that need to be considered to maximise the usability of ceiling hoists.
