Electric Hoist - Minstrel Hoist


The Minstrel combines classic lifting technology with the latest standards in safety, security and comfort for both resident/patient and carer alike.

Making tasks easier and safer

This easy-to-use aid enables caregivers to handle everyday lifting and transfers comfortably, safely and without stress. In the event that a resident/patient should fall down, the Minstrel allows a single caregiver to lift them up from the floor without having to manually sit the resident/patient up.

Improving care and efficiency

As a general purpose lift, the Minstrel is a good asset for small care facilities. Its user-friendliness and versatility encourage frequent and cost effective utilisation.



  • Proven battery-powered lifting technology operated via a handheld control unit provides high standards of safety and comfort for both resident/patient and caregiver
