Advice & Tips: I use a portable ceiling track hoist, the Freeway P-200 http://www.prismmedical.co.uk/products/manuals/P-200Manuals/P-200%20Quick%20Ref%20Guide.pdf I tried the floor standing varieties and for my very standard routine transfers, this is far superior. I miss the flexibility and adaptability of the Oxford Mini hoyer lift. My Freeway takes up next to no space: always a welcome bonus.
