Invacare Birdie Compact Hoist with Fixed Battery
Providing you with a simple and reliable way to lift and transfer patients from beds, chairs and even the floor, the Invacare Birdie Compact Hoist with Fixed Battery is ideal for a number of purposes. Giving maximum space to the user, the Birdie is as comfortable as it is practical, providing users with an excellent lifting experience.
This hoist is available in a choice of two colours. Select your desired option using the drop-down menu at the top of the page.
Safe and Efficient
The castors on the base of the Birdie Compact Lifter are designed with snap-lock brakes that prevent the lifter from moving while in use, making accidents far less likely. The lifter features electric emergency lowering as well as an emergency stop button, ensuring that if there are any problems, you can deal with them with ease.
Long Boom for Comfortable Transfers
One of the main features of the Birdie Compact lifter is the long, high boom. With a greater length of boom, the user is given more space, greatly reducing the chance of injuries, as well as making rotating and positioning the sling easier. Another advantage of the long boom is that it makes transferring a patient into a chair or bed far easier than with some alternative lifters.
Compact and Easy to Use
As well as being designed for safety, the Birdie Compact Hoist is designed for ease for both the user and the carer. With four castors on the base of the lifter, it can be manoeuvred with greater ease and grace, and as it only weighs 36kg, it isn't cumbersome or difficult to position.
To take up less room when stored, the Birdie Compact Hoist can be easily folded and unfolded. If you want to take up even less room, the mast and boom of the lifter can even be detached from the base – all without the use of tools!
CE and TÜV Certified
When you are lifting people that are in a fragile state, it is important to know that the hoist you are using is up to the challenge. The Birdie Compact features CE-certified lifters that are in line with the Medical Direct Directive 93/42/ECC and hoists that comply with EN ISO 10535, the European standard for hoists. Although this product is tested rigorously by Invacare, it is double checked by the German TÜV institute – a fully accredited external body.
