Outstanding lifting range


Whether from the floor or onto a high surface the Presence has an astonishing range of movement. The minimum height with the six point spreader bar is just 440 mm, which ensures excellent off the floor transfers.

Conversely, if you wish to access high beds or nursing surfaces, the Presence will lift up to 1910 mm. This is especially useful where you have variable height beds, special lift mattresses and other high surfaces.

This type of flexibility is increasingly important in the care environment. It is the difference between effective safe transfers and unnecessary risk for both the carer and patient.

Greater spatial area for carer and patient

The additional space promotes better ergonomics for the carer, as it is possible to interact more closely with the patient.

The Presence's unique Swan-neck leg design also allows the lift to get close to the widest of obstacles. This is especially useful when encountering large chairs, bulky commodes and wheel chairs.


Powered Legs

Powered Leg Positioning

The Presence has two powerful electric motors which open and close the legs automatically.


Tapered 'swan neck' leg design

Allows greater internal area, whilst not compromising overall product width.

Large Lift Capacity

In today's demanding care environment larger patients are becoming more of a challenge for conventional lifts.

The Presence provides a larger spatial area to accommodate these patients. Transferring now becomes safer and easier to achieve. The Presence's safe working load is a mighty 227 kg.





Low-Profile Digital Weigh Scale

The Presence can be supplied with a low-profile digital weigh scale (A).
The digital weigh scale offers a number of significant benefits for the user:-

  • Its compact, low-profile design ensures maximum lift height is not compromised when in use.
  • Its integrated dual-screen display means the digital weigh scale can be viewed from either side of the boom, making the scale very easy to use.
  • It is Class III certified meaning it provides a highly accurate measurement of weight each and every time – critically important for on-going patient monitoring.

The new weigh scale is available in 3 different attachment versions:
With 6-point spreader bar (UNISCALE101)
With 4-point manual cradle (UNISCALE100)
With 4-point adjustable power cradle (UNISCALE102)



Spreader Bar
Powered Cradle
Manual Cradle

Interchangeable spreader bar/cradle

One of the restrictions of using certain lifts are the slings which you can use on the product. The Presence however, gives you a choice of sling systems.

You can use the conventional 6 point Oxford spreader bar (C), or the manual (D) or powered 4 point positioning cradle (B). This choice provides the carer with a greater option of slings to use when considering support, comfort and flexibility for the patient.
