“The SG50 Hoist for your freedom and independence!”


For people with disability and our ageing population the desire to stay independent for as long as possible is vital. The freedom to have access and control is so important, for independence and the ability to participate in the community.

Made from quality materials combined with a compact design, the SG50 is easily fitted in numerous types of vehicles including hatchbacks. The arm can fold down in the boot for easy storage. It is a quality product from SMDM, the SG50 solves your lifting problem.

“Get that scooter in with little effort”


It takes the hassle out of needing to have someone with you when you go out. If you do need someone with you, it also takes the guilt factor away. They no longer need to exert themselves when lifting the wheelchair or scooter in and out of the car.

The SG50 has great features that cater to a wide variety of capabilities. Its simple design is easy to operate. The SG50 has an electric lifting and lowering mechanism which makes the task a no brainer. The manual swing of the arm gets the personal mobility equipment into and out of the car in an easy smooth motion.
