Rear hoist

Students optimise a rear hoist for people with disabilities
As part of a design project at Trier University of Applied Sciences, a project group was tasked with optimising a rear van hoist for people with disabilities.
Cars are unable to carry the rear hoists that are currently available on the market: an impractical feature that the project set to improve upon. Not only did the work involve a theoretical design stage, it also required the students to bring their model to life by constructing an actual product.
What the group created was an optimised rear hoist which, when folded up, can be carried on a car's tow hitch.
This result is an inexpensive, universal solution that is compatible with a large number of vehicle types. To move a person in a wheelchair into a vehicle, the hoist is first unfolded and the wheelchair, together with its occupant, is positioned on the fork attached to the vehicle. The wheelchair is then raised and swivelled into the vehicle. Once the wheelchair user is securely seated inside and the fork has been removed, the equipment can be simply folded up again.
norelem in the project:

norelem provided the team with a range of standard parts for bringing the project to fruition. One example was a »gas spring that minimises the equipment load that the operator has to bear when folding it up. Additionally, the »threaded spindle, the »swivel foot and the »plate for swivel feet made it possible to achieve stability and use a pivot bearing in the design.
