BHM Voyager Portable Ceiling Lift
Note: BHM Medical seems to have disappeared. Their website url, www.bhm-medical.com, now redirects to www.arjohuntleigh.com's ceiling lift page. I'm assuming that BHM Has been taken over by Arjo Huntleigh. People looking for information on BHM products should probably contact Arjo Huntleigh.
I don't know whether this product is still available (I see some dealers still advertising them). I'm leaving the page online as a reference for anyone who might need this information.
Whether you are transferring a patient from a bed, chair or floor, the portable Voyager will always give you the same dependability and reliability. Our wide range of slings will help you in all types of situations.
Light & Easy to Carry - Weighing only 5.5 kg (12 lbs.) with the battery and only 4.3 kg (9.5 lbs.) with the battery removed, the Voyager Portable is the lightest portable lift on the market today. The easy-grip handle and rubberized 'feet' make it easy to carry and set down anywhere.
High Weight Capacity - With the increasing number of heavy and obese patients, you need a lift that will help your caregivers in those special circumstances. With a 200 kg (440 lbs.) capacity, the Voyager Portable is certified to ensures that you are able to handle most of your heaviest patients.
Removable Battery - It is very important that a ceiling lift be operational all the time - anytime. Though our battery can do 30 transfers between charges, there may be occasions where you need more. A spare battery can be available and ready to keep going whenever you need it. Just push a button and the battery pops out, then slide the fresh battery in. In addition, we made sure that our efficient charging system has your battery fully charged within 2-3 hours.
Patented 'quick release' - Save time, battery power and use proper ergonomics by releasing the strap to lengthen or shorten it quickly. Rather than hold the lift at shoulder height to attach the lift to the rail, the caregiver can lengthen the strap so the lift can be placed on the floor or chair while the lift is attached to the rail. In addition, the lift can be lifted or lowered into position before and after a transfer without using the battery power. This significantly increases the life of the battery while saving time.
Convenient Controls - It is extremely important that the lift be operational at all times. Two sets of controls are right on the lift in addition to the handset that is available. This ensures that if the handset is damaged, the lift can continue to transfer your patients in safety.
Fast Transfer Speed - In the interest of making caregiver tasks more efficient, the fast, efficient motor transfers the patient with a comfortable pace.
Safety Features - The Voyager Portable has several features for emergency circumstances. The anti-crush sensor, emergency brake, manual emergency lowering option as well as the safety testing below ensure the patient and caregiver is protected and safe.
CSA 601.1/UL2601-1 & ISO 10535 - This certification is provided by an independent third party that ensures the lift and charging system are safe. The Voyager Portable is in accordance with the new European standard that applies to equipment that transfers persons. The series of tests involved ensure the lift can hold 2.5 times its capacity, the motor will do more that 10 000 cycles and maintain its strength and other tests.
