The ceiling hoist installed by Prism Medical (Movement2 Division) is split into separate components in the bedroom and bathroom due to the varying ceiling heights and services within the false ceiling. It was unfortunately not possible to make the track continuous from one room to the other but there are fixed ceiling track hoists in both rooms, so unlike some other hotels there is no need to physically transfer a transportable hoist and these have powered traverse too.

The track in the bedroom covers the full width of the bed and curves around to one side to give a good choice of transfer point from chair to hoist. The bathroom is an H track which gives access to anywhere in the room. Both rooms are equipped with Freeway T200M hoists (200Kg SWL) and there is a 19" wide Freeway T40 shower/commode chair should you prefer to use that.
