The Human Hoist was originally designed for mechanics. It is a mechanical, robotic, fully automated adjustable chair. It is powered by two 24 volt rechargeable batteries, and can lift a 300 pound individual over 200 times on a charge. The chair is uniquely designed for lifting and lowering, as well as reclining. The frame sits on 3 castor wheels for full mobility. It was originally designed for mechanics but has found wide acceptance in Manufacturing, Transportation, Aerospace and Rehabilitation.
