Arjo Australia, a global supplier of medical devices, believes empowering movement within healthcare environments is essential to quality care.

Their products and solutions are designed to promote a safe and dignified experience through patient and resident medical beds, hygiene care, disinfection, diagnostics, and the prevention of pressure injuries and venous thromboembolism.

For The Queen Elizabeth Hospital Redevelopment, Arjo was involved in the design and project management, working closely with the builders and architects. Arjo supplied and installed ceiling hoists (Portable Maxi Sky 440, Maxi Sky 2, and Maxi Sky 2 Plus Bariatric hoist system) and a range of medical products including, medical beds, stretchers, slings, and foam & air mattresses.

“For the early stages of a project, we provide practical advice on planning and designing care facilities, and design inspiration for different types of rooms,” said Sales Director, James Blieschke.

The project also marks the first installation in a South Australian Hospital of the Maxi Sky 2 Plus Bariatric unit.

“Patients of larger size have the right to be treated with comfort and dignity. Maxi Sky 2 Plus makes it possible to transfer non-ambulatory bariatric patients (up to 454kg),” said Ivan Molina, State Manager. “Three Bariatric rooms were installed with the Maxi Sky 2 Plus Bariatric ceiling hoist system, which has been a real highlight of the work at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.”

Research shows that there is a clear connection between mobility and people’s physical and mental well-being.

Creating the best opportunities for mobility is therefore at the very core of providing high-quality care. Arjo has seen how empowering movement can quickly improve both clinical and financial outcomes to facilities. As a leading specialist in the field, they work continuously to promote mobility – with the aim of contributing to better healthcare.

The Queen Elizabeth Hospital project is also one of Arjo’s largest installations of Ceiling Hoists in South Australia with installations in the gym, general wards, ICU, patient bays, emergency department, changing places and bariatric rooms. Arjo is currently finalising installation of ceiling hoists at Eldercare Goodwood in South Australia.

Consolidating their place as leaders in mobility solutions and quality care, Arjo, your mobility outcome partner, has created the Arjo Portal for Architects and Planners. “We have a long history of collaborating closely with architects, safe patient handling experts, hospital and aged care executives,” said James Blieschke

“Our experience has taught us that to create efficient care facilities and to obtain a good working environment, the right combination of environment, equipment and care skills are needed. Therefore, it is key to design for sufficient space early in the planning of a new facility.”

Founded in 1957 by Arne Johansson, in Eslöv, Sweden, Arjo has over 6500 people worldwide and 65 years of caring for patients and healthcare professionals. The company is committed to driving healthier outcomes for people facing mobility challenges around the world.
