The Smart Transfer, previously known as a Milford Hoist, is a person hoist designed to be installed into a vehicle to transfer you from your wheelchair to the car seat. This allows you to travel in the front seat in comfort and eliminates the need to rely on someone lifting you manually into the car, or the purchase of an expensive wheelchair accessible vehicle.
The Smart Transfer can be installed to a wide selection of vehicles, 3 or 5 door, passenger or driver's seat. In some vehicles it is possible to install the hoist into the second row of seats. The hoist can easily be operated from a simple handset by either yourself or an assistant. There are several sling options to suit everyone including, a standard sling, double amputee sling and even a fleece lined one for that little extra comfort.
The person hoist has a maximum lifting capacity of 23.5 Stone or 149 Kg, combining that with its ability to be installed into most vehicles, the Smart Transfer hoist offers a simple yet effective way of travelling in a standard vehicle. With its compact lightweight design, the heaviest component weighs only 8.5 Kg. All of the components can be stored in the convenient carry bag which is supplied with the hoist.
Also available is the Smart Base system. This works in conjunction with the Smart Transfer and is a compact portable person hoist base allowing the system to be used away from the vehicle.This stand alone base is an excellent addition to the Smart Transfer system and is perfect for holidays or overnight stays. The Smart Base conveniently comes with its own power supply to operate the Smart Transfer hoist.
