  • Point to point transfers
  • Walking ⁄ Rehab

In addition to its lightweight aluminium construction the Ascend has a powerful safe working load of 170kg.

As well as being compact and easy to operate in confined spaces such as bathrooms, the Ascend has many key design features that make it a truly flexible piece of equipment.

The knee pad is adjustable in height (by 152mm or 6 inches) to ensure that the patient feels comfortable and fully supported throughout the lifting process. The pad, which has a molded design to provide additional support, also has a leg restraint for those patients needing additional reassurance.

Removing the foot tray transforms the Ascend into a device that allows a patient to fully stand. This is made possible by the Ascend’s extensive lifting range. Once standing, the lift can be removed and the patient can be encouraged to walk independently.

The Ascend enters a new dimension when it comes to usability. Careful attention to product design ensures correct ergonomic usage, protecting both the patient and carer from injury at all times.

The Ascend was designed with the 5 key principles of moving and handling in mind.

  • Get close to the load
  • Use a wide stable base
  • Ensure a comfortable firm grasp
  • Keep spine close to neutral
  • Make sure movement is smooth

This direct correlation ensures Oxford’s lift designs are simple, safe and above all comfortable to use. This view is shared by Oxford's consultant teams, who have assisted us in conducting detailed usability surveys to ensure that the Ascend meets the true needs of the patient, the carer and the environment in which it operates.
