“This mobile lifter makes it easier for both users and carers to
deal with daily situations involving lifting and moving. It may well help prevent work strains and back injuries for our care staff”
Manager, Long Term Care Facility
“Mobile lifters are particularly suitable in places and situations where there is no ceiling-mounted hoist system within reach.
Maybe there is no room for a stationary installation. Maybe the place does not normally involve lifting. Whatever the reason,
a mobile lifter is a practical and cost-effective lifting aid and a great means of extra safety”

Modern design — offering on or off board charging, to suit the environment in which the
GL5 is used. The GL5 has been matched to the “Red Dot” award winning
design of the GH3 ceiling hoist ⁄ system
All–round capabilities — the GL5 makes it easy to deal with a wide range
of moving and handling situations while being ergonomically sound and safe for both the care provider and user.
The GL5 mobile lifters are the floor based alternatives to the ceiling mounted lifting solutions offered
in the Guldmann range of products.
What makes the GL5 mobile floor lifters unique is the attention to detail that makes the lifter easy to use and
provides comfort and a safer lifting process.
The GL5 lifter has a lifting capacity of 205kg and features electric lifting and width adjustment
to allow easy access around chairs, baths and the ability to lift from the floor.
The configuration means lifting capacity is more than adequate, and GL5 lifters are very stable.
These lifters have the ability to be charged on or off the hoist to suit various working environments. The low friction castors,
ergonomically designed push handle and the lifting design make the lifters easier to manoeuvre. User friendly features include easy
to use buttons and indicators and safety features with automatic on⁄off and easy to reach emergency stop ⁄ lowering functions.
GL5 handles all the lifting tasks
Lifting to and from the floor — GL5 can lift directly from the floor to a chair or bed.
This makes a GL5 the ideal solution if an unforeseen lifting need occurs where there is no ceiling mounted hoist available.
The lower section of the lifter is designed to give the user ample room and the considerable reach of the lifting arm means
the user doesn’t feel boxed in.
GL5 is ideal for use in physiotherapy, where users have to be lifted from, for example, a chair down onto an
exercise mattress. The lower section can be placed in the wide position to make sure there is enough room to make the lift directly above the mattress.

Heavy lifting — With the capacity to lift 205kg the GL5 is ideal for lifting bariatric patients.
It has ample room for the user, a high lifting capacity and exceptional stability that leaves the user without any discomfort or anxiety.
Horizontal lifting — With the advanced design of the lifting height and reach the GL5 is well
suited for horizontal lifting with the Guldmann stretcher style accessories.
