Shopping Hoist

Project  / Project number: 16/1492  /  Status:


The challenge

Client had lost the full use of the left side of her body so found it very hard to carry shopping up a short flight of stairs to her flat.  Clambering up was possible but not holding shopping. Stair lift was not possible as the stairs were communal access. A small hand powered hoist was made so that one small shopping bag could be lifted from the ground floor up to the first floor. The hook is put into the lowered position on leaving the flat then shopping hoisted up on return.
