The Maxi Sky 2 Plus is a ceiling lift system that can accommodate various patient sizes. Using twin lift cassettes mounted on a rotatable trolley, the system enables patients up to 454 kg/ 1000 lbs to be lifted, transferred, turned and repositioned.

Features and benefits:

  • The spreader bar combination makes it possible to use the Dynamic Positioning System for all patients, making patient handling routines more comfortable and requiring less effort for the caregiver – all tasks can be performed with this system such as limb support, repositioning, and transfers.
  • The telescopic adjustment feature ensures stability, easy manoeuvring and automatic adjustment to the patient’s size and position.
  • Can be switched over for use with a single cassette, and can therefore serve a wide range of patients. When used in this mode, the system can utilize the full range of spreader bars and slings.
  • The tilt function enables the caregiver to easily place the patient into a seated upright position just before reaching the chair.
  • The colour display provides information on battery status, monitoring of product usage and smart self-diagnosis for efficient maintenance.
  • Requires less healthcare professional supervision – only one person is required.
  • Rotatable through 360°C.
  • Low chance of slippage.
  • Weight is spread equally between the dual motor, meaning lower risk of overload.

  • Can be mounted onto single or double tracks.
  • Cost efficient.
  • IPX7 approved.
  • Features high durability push buttons for a long service life.
  • Easy to clean.
