Capability Scotland’s Wallace Court is going through a total refurbishment of all 20 bedrooms and 3 of their bathrooms.
Following several meetings with the service manager, who explained their problem of having 6 different types of ceiling hoists, the manager decided that as part of their total refurbishment they would like one make and model of ceiling hoist in all the bedrooms and bathroom
ACS Healthcare Ltd won the tender to take out all of their existing ceiling hoists and tracks, and install the Invacare I-Transia in all of bedrooms and X-Y systems in their bathrooms.

Here at ACS Healthcare, we are knowledgeable and experienced in supplying a range of healthcare products including medical beds, mobile hoists, ceiling track hoists and stair lifts.

Being disabled and needing specialist equipment and care isn't easy. For some people, it can limit the things that they are able to do with their lives, going on holiday being one of them. But needing specialist equipment such as ceiling track hoists doesn't mean that you are unable to travel or take a vacation, it just means that you need to find the right accommodation!

As leading suppliers of ceiling track hoists for the disabled, ACS Healthcare naturally keeps abreast of the news with regard to issues that affect the disabled, such as those who have a ceiling track hoist in their home.

According to a recent article in the Huffington Post, the UK government’s controversial bedroom tax is under fire from MPs, who insist it is causing ‘severe distress’ to the disabled.

The cross-party committee of MPs has concluded that disabled people are suffering “severe financial hardship and distress” as a result of the so-called bedroom tax.

Being disabled or being injured in an accident doesn't mean that you have to lose all of your freedom. There are things that can be done to help make your daily life easier. When people need help moving from one position to another, whether it is in their home, in hospital, or in a care home, choosing the appropriate equipment, such as ceiling track hoists or mobile hoists can make all the difference.

Ceiling track hoists are great for providing access throughout a building for those that have mobility problems or disabilities. If a person is having trouble standing and moving about due to an illness or ongoing disability, a hoist may be very helpful in order to transfer them from one place to another.

Nobody would want to find themselves in a situation where vital pressure care equipment stops working, causing discomfort and distress to the very vulnerable people who rely on it to protect them.

We offer servicing, maintenance and repair of not only our own pressure care equipment, but most other major manufacturers, as a stand alone service to NHS Trusts, PCTs and care homes.

To comply with health and safety standards, dynamic mattresses, pumps and seating systems should be subject to an annual safety check. Your pressure care equipment will also benefit from being regularly serviced to ensure it remains in good working order and ready whenever your patients need it most.

Healthcare and medical cleaning and decontamination servicesInfection control is a top priority for both patients and healthcare professionals with many organisations, both within the NHS Acute and Community settings, introducing a zero tolerance approach to healthcare associated infections such as MRSA and Cdiff.

Itransia Mobility hoistThe Invacare I-Transia is a reliable and highly cost effective ceiling hoist that is perfect for community and residential care. Designed to meet the wide range of day-to-day lifting needs encountered by carers, the I-Transia allows transfers to be carried out quickly, safely and comfortably.

Mobile Track HoistThe Robin Hoist is compatible with most track systems, with no mess or fuss we will take away the old lifting unit and replace it with a brand new system with up to three years warranty.

The Robin operates without a spreader bar. This means:

  • much higher client-carer interaction and eye contact, thanks to no spreader bar
  • Higher feeling of security as no worries about hitting head on the spreader bar.
  • Easier to get in and out of, as the client does not have to worry about ducking.
  • Less obstructive as the hoist takes up less space on the ceiling or in storage off the track.
