Swing Bath Installation 2

Job Description

This client has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and was using the Arjo Parker Sovereign for approximately nine years. The bath had become too small and a Swing Bath was assessed and determined to be the best option as it provided the in-bath support required and was larger internally to accommodate the client’s growth changes. The bathroom was challenging as the Swing Bath could only be installed by turning the position of the bath through 90 Degrees as shown in the images below. This required that the electrical services, hot and cold water and waste services had to be re-positioned accordingly. The bath also had to be within the transfer area of the existing ceiling hoist used to transfer in and out of the bath.

CEILING HOIST INSTALLATIONS

Bedroom to Bathroom conventionally mounted rail

Job Description

To provide a bedroom to bathroom hoist system, comprising of a single rail in the bedroom and H-system in the bathroom. The bedroom rail travels across the bedroom and is diverted toward the bathroom doorway via an electronic switch track. The rail through the doorway is connected to the H-system via an electronic Combi-Lock. This component is designed to engage with the traverse rail of the H-system in the bathroom and automatically open the safety gates so the hoist can travel through to the bathroom. When in the room the Combi-Lock is de-selected and the traverse rail disengages to allow the rail to move freely around the room.

Length of rail allows for the charging station to be mounted at the opposite side of the room to the client’s bed.

The electronic combi-lock/safety-gate provides a means of connecting two independent rail systems to allow for transition through a doorway.

From the bedroom the rail continues onto the H-system in the bathroom to aid transfer around the room and in and out of the Swing Bath.

Ceiling Hoist System with Recessed Rails

Job Description

To provide a bedroom to bathroom linked ceiling hoist system with H-system in the bedroom and H-system in the bathroom. The support rails for each H-system were to be set into the ceiling (recessed) so that approximately 25mm of rail only would protrude, from the finished ceiling, thus greatly reducing the visual impact of the overall H-rail system within each room.

The complexity for this type of installation requires that the ceiling hoist rail system has to be installed as a 1st and 2nd fix item.

1st Fix

Prior to the ceiling being boarded and the doorway detail started the support rails, for each H-system, are set in-between the joists at a sufficient position as to be exactly the same height in each room and allow a protrusion of rail (25mm) from the ceiling once boarded and skimmed. The rails are then braced in position prior to the completion of ceiling.

2nd Fix

The “through door” Combi-Lock and traverse rails of the H-systems are not installed until the ceiling is boarded and skimmed. On completion of installation of these components, and successful commissioning and weight testing the doorway header detail can be completed as shown below.

The image below shows the opposite end of the H-system and how the support rail, when recessed, blends in aesthetically with the finished ceiling.
