Molift Air 500

For comfortable and dignified care of plus size users (SWL 500 kg)

The Molift Air 500 is a ceiling hoist for plus size users up to 500 kg. It is designed to eliminate strenuous manual lifting, create a better work environment for carers and enable good and dignified care for plus size users. The outstanding lifting capacity and the user-friendly design make this hoist an important aid in the healthcare sector.

Maximum comfort and ease of use

The Molift Air 500 combines ease of use for staff, with maximum comfort and dignified care for users. Smooth rail transitions and gentle starts and stops ensure the most comfortable and effective lifts and transfers for users while ensuring that they feel secure and supported at every stage.
