Hoist-ory

Enable Supplies began its journey as a brand dedicated to quality Hoist and lifting equipment solutions that were Technically Perfect in terms of patient handling AND guaranteed 100% Customer Satisfaction.

It was decided by its founders that our ceiling hoist quality metrics would not only be a company objective but a firm promise and would ensure on-going innovation, winning admiration for our synergy between reliable patient hoists and practical privacy screens for hospital wards, and care facilities as well as bed hoists for elderly use at home.  Initially the business concentrated its efforts on lifting hoists and patient handling slings but subsequently added complementary bathing, toileting & infection control systems to provide a total solution for patient manual handling tasks on busy care wards.

Such was the overwhelming response to the firm’s innovative style, approach and philosophy that soon international manufacturers were partnering with Enable Supplies to provide a Total Health Care Plan for elderly and disabled people who required medical equipment at home.

Building upon this success, the company moved decisively to offer bespoke patient handling and sling Training solutions to the moving & handling sector. Today Enable Supplies is recognised as an authority on design solutions. It has grown to become one of Irelands most trusted and relied upon suppliers of specialist care equipment. And our service and maintenance database continues to grow and grow.
