Bariatric Inboard Lift

Bariatric Inboard Lift

This PLS lift is an inboard, powered platform designed for a wide range of emergency vehicles across the world

With an impressive 500kg SWL, the Bariatric Inboard Lift is a highly robust lifting solution with the widest platform available today that is capable of moving larger patients.

With a remarkable platform width of 1040mm, this PLS lift leads the world and is the only model that will accommodate the latest Ferno Bariatric stretcher. It can be designed with either a split or single piece platform and the high grade, aluminium surface provides extra strength for supporting stretchers. It incorporates an array of intelligent features to assist PTS operators and to ensure moving and handling risks are minimised.

The outboard roll-off stop will open smoothly even when deployed over irregular surfaces and handrail deployment is automatic. There is ample room on the platform for operator and patient and a durable, two-button hand console controls the lift. When stowed, the platform rests on rubber cushions so there is no vibration or additional noise. A full manual override system is included for use in the unlikely event of vehicle power failure.
