Foot control for hoistTo adapt the controls on a mobile hoist so that they can be operated by the foot leaving the carer with both hands free to manoeuvre his wife.

A mounting block was constructed into which the hand controller could be fitted at the base of the hoist. A swinging foot pedal carrying a light spring bears on each of the pair of control buttons allowing the hoist to be operated ‘hands free’.

‘Hands free’ operation of hoist allowing carer to manoeuvre his wife safely.
