Ergonomic design considerations

The Presence was designed with the five key principles of moving and handling in mind.

  1. Get close to the load
  2. Use a wide stable base
  3. Ensure a comfortable firm grasp
  4. Keep spine close to neutral
  5. Make sure movement is smooth
Hand Control Rest
Hand control clip ensures convenient storage when not in use.
Foot Pad
Foot ‘push pad’ helps reduce the force needed to initiate forward movement.
Push Handle
Over-sized push handle for improved handling and manoeuvrability.

Outstanding lifting range

High Lift Floor Lift

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 440mm, which ensures excellent off the floor transfers.

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

Smart Monitor

Smart™ Monitor

The Smart™ Monitor control system records the exact amount of work completed by the actuator each and every time the lift is used, regardless of a patient’s weight or lift height covered. The intelligent system advises the user to schedule key maintenance helping to ensure your lift remains in optimum condition.

  • Identifies total lift actuations and work completed
  • Identifies lift overloads (exceeding SWL)
  • Identifies service interval periods
  • Increases patient safety and product service life

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 Leg Positioning

Powered Legs

Leg options

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.

Low Leg Option

The low leg Presence maintains the exact same functionality of the standard Presence with the added benefit of a lower leg height to allow better access under low bed frames and other furniture.

Lift height, safe working load and all other elements remain unchanged.

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.
