Post type pool hoist with rotating and lifting seat carriages

In the last 20 years Wymo has designed many types of lifting devices for the disabled as well as those with minor mobility problems. We use a method in which a winch (on the top of a post) lifts and lowers a seat carriage and the seat carriage is then rotated over the water and back again.

We have developed an excellent self-operated system for the Pool Access Hoist as well.

Wymo Lifting Aids has a full range post type hoists for inground pools, inground spas, above ground pools as well as swim spas.

The building code of Australia requires a pool hoist within 136kg safe working load capacity and 210kg static load capacity. The pool hoist carriage is slung from the winch unit of the hoist which is on top of the post. The Pool Access Hoist is compliant to the BCA requirements.

Self-Operated Pool Access Hoist
