The Transfer Hoist is a powered seat transfer lift designed to enable a person with a disability to transfer independently from a wheelchair to a bed. The device consists of a steel crane which swivels around from behind a bed. The crane includes an electric winch, a remote switch, and a harness. The crane has mounting points on the floor and the ceiling. The user fits into the sling-type harness, then operates the winch to be lifted and transferred. PROTOTYPE DEVELOPMENT: Designed by Frank Heminsley for a user who could not transfer from a wheelchair to a bed without the aid of an attendant.
