New Power traverse for HeliQ overhead lifts.
Human Care is pleased to present its new Power traverse for HeliQ overhead lifts that makes our stationary lifting solution even better! The Power Traverse cannot only adjust the lift up and down but, more importantly, sideways. This not only ensures smooth movement, but also that you do not have to drag heavy patients which can lead to back injuries for the caregiver. The new HeliQ Power Traverse also creates a more comfortable lifting experience for patients as they are transferred in one steady pace.
The new HeliQ Power Traverse has dual speed, high water protection (IPX4) and can easily pass curtain gaps in rails. Power traverse must be ordered in conjunction with the HeliQ overhead lift and is available in three weight capacities: 150 kg (330lbs), 220 kg (485 lbs) and 300 kg (660 lbs).

New rail rollers for in-rail charging
Human Care is pleased to present new in-rail charging rail rollers that complete our lift program with all products needed for continuous in-rail charging of the HeliQ overhead lifts. These new products are designed to allow a continuous charge of the HeliQ overhead lifts. In-rail charging will assure greater efficiency and provide the opportunity for easier handling of both the lift and the patient. Rails with in-rail charging ensure that the lift is charged at all times, which means you don´t need a charging station, and the lift can be left anywhere in the rail system. In-rail Charging is available for all straight rails and traverse systems and all Human Care rail profiles are prepared for in-rail charging.
Find out more about the new rail rollers at our website or contact your local Human Care representative for more information.
