Our Free Standing Rail Systems offer the power and convenience of overhead lifting, with no structural requirements for walls or ceilings.
These flexible solutions can be good options where construction is not possible, room downtime is not feasible, or when the need to mobilize bariatric patients emerges. Compatible with the Likorall® or Multirall patient lifts, most of these systems are made of aluminum and come in a variety of designs. Different rail lengths can also help accommodate most care environments. Our Free Standing Rail Systems are relatively easy to build or dismantle with just two people, less than two hours of time, and some common tools.

Can Hillrom lifts be used with other manfactuers' slings?keyboard_arrow_down
It is Hillrom's position that no manufacturer can ensure compatibility with products over which it does not have design or manufacturing control without careful analysis, including physical testing and validation. Use with other manufacturers’ products could introduce additional risk to patient handling as compatibility across different manufacturers' products would need to be evaluated and maintained.

As with any medical device that lifts, transfers and mobilizes patients, improper use can result in injury to either the caregiver or the patient. Always consult the Instructions for Use that come with your patient lift as well as any accessories. If you have questions or concerns, consult your local Hillrom representative or contact Hillrom Customer Service.
