aXs Aquatic Hoist

aXs Aquatic Hoist

RehaMed International has been designing and producing access solutions for aquatics since 1996. In that year, the company introduced the PAL-Portable Aquatic Hoist, which truly revolutionized the market for commercial swimming pool hoists. That product was followed by the Splash! series of hoists, along with an assortment of design variations for different applications.

For several years, the company has sought to produce a hoist specifically designed for the unique needs of both the residential and small hotel markets. Design criteria included providing a reliable product, that would be easy to operate, affordably priced, and, feature an attractive design.

The aXs Aquatic Hoist is the result of this effort.

The aXs (pronounced: “ak’-ces”) combines attractive design, battery powered operation, and affordability to present a pool hoist specifically designed for these markets. The aXs is a perfect access solution for simple pool designs with a maximum deck to water distance of 6 inches (15 cm). The aXs is mounted into a standard square deck anchor that is included with the hoist.

The aXs was designed to blend in with any patio environment. The hoist weighs less than 32 Kg. (without the chair) and can easily be stored away when not required.

The aXs is constructed from stainless steel and aluminum extrusions. All metallic surfaces are coated with an attractive and durable powder coated finish. The housing is formed from ABS plastic with an acrylic cap. The colour of the aXs blends into any residential or hospitality pool area.

The aXs is powered by a rechargeable battery that drives a reliable mechanical actuator. This combination is the same technology that has been used in hoists manufactured by RehaMed International since 1996. The attached hand control allows for independent operation.

The aXs has a hoisting capacity of 300 lbs. (136 kg).

aXs Aquatic Hoist Accessories:


Battery & Charger

All pool hoists manufactured by RehaMed International are powered by a 24 volt, rechargeable battery. This is a lead acid battery that should be left on the charger when not in use. It is IMPORTANT that the battery not be allowed to fully discharge, as this could damage the battery. The best practice is to make it a rule to put the battery on the charger each evening. If the hoist is being stored for the winter, leave the battery on the charger all winter. You cannot overcharge the battery.

The charger connects to the port located on the same side of the battery as the control box connection.
