We rented the Ardoo portable hoist so we could take my Mother out from the nursing home she resides in over the Christmas period. She is completely paralyzed on her right side and has very limited mobility. We have no previous experience of hoists but found the Ardoo hoist very easy to use. It assembles in minutes requiring only two simple actions. The sling can be slid behind the person’s back and under their thighs which means very little disturbance to the person. We actually found it less physically demanding transferring my Mother using the hoist to our own cars (Mazda 6 and Ford S max) than using the wheelchair accessible car we previously owned.
