The all new BodyHoist

Up to now there was no good solution to pick up a deceased, lift them up, gently transfer them from their place and lower them in a coffin. Our technical team thought of a solution and came up with a revolutionary device, named The BodyHoist.

How to work with the PLS BodyHoist

Adjust the shoulderwidth as desired using one of two possibilities; the fixed shoulderwidth and the steppless shoulderwidth. Place the BodyHoist with opened fingers and let it glide along the deceased and let it rest completely on the table so that the forks closes automatically.

Make sure that the Shoulderwidth Rods are between the shoulders and elbows. Support the head by positioning the headband. Adjust the balancepoint if necessary.

Lift the deceased calmly and check that the balance is correct and the deceased person is respectfully in the BodyHoist. When desired; lift the deceased futher.

Position the BodyHoist above the coffin. check of the BodyHoist van be placed between the walls of the coffin. When desired; lower the BodyHoist to let the deceased rest on the bottom of the coffin. If not as disired; adjust the BodyHoist again.
