The Out Reach lift system, manufactured by Mobility Lift Systems, Inc., provides patient mobility, freedom of movement, safety and range of motion that is not available from other patient lift providers. With very little effort, patients have easy access to rooms and activities which were previously Out of Reach while reducing the risk of back injuries to the caregiver.

Our Out Reach disabled lift provides home health, hospital, school and professional organizations with lift solutions for their patient mobility lift needs. This patient lift system is easy to install in just a matter of a few hours and can be relocated as needs may change. By utilizing the Out Reach system stanchions in multiple locations with a single patient lift motor the Out Reach lift system inexpensively increases patient mobility, easy access, transfer locations and multiple location patient care solutions at a reduced cost.

The Out Reach patient lift system's unique elbow hinge design reaches out a total of four feet providing an 180 degree sweep of 8 feet and can provide transfers through doorways between existing room. This mobility patient lift system provides a range of movement which reduces or eliminates costly remodeling in many home settings. The efficient aluminum, stainless steel and compact design allows the Out Reach system to be mounted out of the way as it blends into any room while providing the strength and flexibility necessary to securely provide an individual mobility transfer.

MLS is the manufacturer of the Out Reach Stanchion Model 300/440 which can be used with other lift motors and slings.

Mike Hoover began his working career in 1965 as a co-op engineering student with Delco-Remy Division of General Motors Corporation. In 1975 General Motors relocated Mr. Hoover to Meridian, MS where he worked for twelve years in the areas of engineering, computer system development and manufacturing management of that green-field facility startup.

After accepting an early retirement offer in 1987 and the completion of a second degree in Business Management, Mr. Hoover held positions in the manufacturing industry including equipment sales, manufacturing engineering, Plant Manager, General Manager, Vice President and Executive Vice President of Operations for both domestic and foreign based companies. His product experience included manufacturing operations in automotive components, assembly equipment development, of components used in heating and cooling systems, automotive seating, cylinder forging, aluminum water pump assembly and production of engine pistons.

However, it was the decision to become a investment representative and his family's experience at the Arkansas State Rehabilitation Hospital in Hot Springs, Arkansas that led Mr. Hoover to the decision to purchase Mobility Lift Systems, LLC (formerly H2O Lifts and Ramps). It was through the personal experience at the Hot Springs center that he became aware of the significant needs of the medically challenged and the lack of easy to use lift systems and equipment. To Mike it seemed that his entire career had been a preparation of purpose...to produce a product of value for those with significant challenges.

With the Out Reach lift system, patients can more easily participate in physical therapy which requires access to the floor. This feature also allows children to engage in activities with their peers that sometimes require access to the floor.

Features such as a light-weight, yet powerful lift motor, an intuitive remote control, a color-coded sling and a unique elbow-hinge design make the Out Reach lift system the most versatile and easily managed system on the market.

It has allowed John to do things that bring a little more normalcy to his life. Before, I couldn't lift him out of the bathtub. I don't know what we would do without it. We're thankful that it is here. I've never seen a lift that is able to do this. -Sabra W., Mobility Lift Systems Customer


These days, as you know, school systems are called upon to provide an environment for every child to access an education. But, we have found that not many campuses can adequately accommodate children in wheelchairs.

Do you have students in wheelchairs? Are you equipped to handle their needs?

If not, we can help!

At Mobility Lift Systems, we manufacture and install systems to allow your disabled children the range of motion they need and deserve. The Out Reach Lift by Mobility Lift Systems allows a freedom and range of movement that was previously unavailable to patients with limited mobility. With very little effort, patients are now able to access rooms and activities which were previously out of reach.

The entire system can be installed and ready for use within a matter of hours. In fact, the Out Reach lift system can even utilize multiple pole installations which allows you to use a single lift motor that can be used to access multiple rooms. This increased range of movement vastly improves quality of life.

The unique elbow-hinge design not only results in a total reach of 8 feet, but it also creates a range of movement which, until now, required remodeling. The efficient design and compact installation allows the system to blend into any room while also providing the strength and flexibility needed to securely move around.

How do we pay for this on our current budget?

The money is already there.

There are allocations for Children’s Medical Equipment under The No Child Left Behind Act and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act .


As a person with special mobility needs, your desire to feel safe, secure and in control is attainable with the Out Reach Lift System.

Possible injury to you or your caregiver is drastically reduced.

Our lift provides you with precise movement that was previously unavailable.

Safely and securely . . .

  • Transfer from your bed to a wheelchair
  • Slow and steady positioning into a bathtub or shower
  • Exact positioning for toileting
  • Easy transfers between rooms through narrow doorways.
  • Easy access to floor activities
  • Smooth lowering into pool for aquatic therapy

CMS/PDAC/Noridian Product Codes


Let’s consider Hospital, Nursing Home and Professional TreatmentFacilities:

  • Injury Risk: greatly reduces risk of patient injury and care giver OSHA related back injuries sustained as a result of patent lifting.
  • Quality of Life: patient quality of life improves dramatically as the ease of mobility provides patient greater access to family interaction along with personal privacy and dignity when needed.
  • Installation: easy to install by maintenance personnel as the stanchion pole attaches to floor and upper wall with four bolts (less than two hours to complete).
  • Space Requirements: the very small footprint (2 1\2" x 2 1\2") is especially important in small cramped spaces. Ideal for bathrooms and sharing when placed between two beds.
  • Portable: easily moved from location to location as the lift can travel with the patient or student, ideal when used in both a remote rehabilitation program and for in?room patient care needs.
  • Non obtrusive: does not clutter up critical ’patient care space’. The stanchion pole has been used as a support for other medical treatment equipment.
  • Personnel: reduces patient lifting and care staffing labor as the lift is easily operated by one staff member.
  • Motion Risk: a care giver maintains physical contact with the patient thereby providing a secure steadiness and no risk of the device tipping over from turning, becoming lodged on the doorsill or wedged within the doorframe.
  • Care Benefits: sling designs provide a stable way for one nurse to lift a patient in the horizontal position enabling the skin to breathe and for bed changing tasks to be completed.
  • Bed Turnover: the MLS accelerates patient healing process and provides the patient/home caregiver with the ability to provide care and mobility at home. The above attributes create a welcoming patient care environment which facilitates early patient discharge. Minimizing the length of time professional care is required thus resulting in the reduction of associated staffing costs, freeing up human resources and enabling a medical facility to provide services to more patients at a lower unit delivery cost.

The benefits of the Mobility Lift System continue when the patient returns home as well.

  • Injury Risk: greatly reduces risk of patient injury and care giver OSHA or private insurance related back injuries sustained from patent lifting.
  • Quality of Life: patient quality of life improves dramatically as the ease of mobility provides patient greater access to family interaction along with personal privacy and dignity when needed.
  • System Flexibility: stanchion poles are configurable to individual circumstances with typical locations being the bedroom, bathroom, family area and garage where most other solutions encounter the barriers of doorway and hallway widths, steps, lack of uniform ceiling heights and support and inability to make a turn.
  • Home Care: care givers have found the MLS ease to use, requiring minimal time to secure the patient for transfer, transfer can be accomplished by a single care giver, the patient senses security during transfer as lift control allows the care giver to maintain patient contact.
  • Agility: the MLS has the unique feature that allows the transfer of a patient around a corner and through a narrow doorway thereby maneuvering the patient into places where wheelchairs, Hoyer lifts and ceiling lifts may be denied access.
  • Affordable: when all of the available lift options are compared to include the costs of:equipment purchase, ceiling attachment, alterations to existing doorways, patient transfer from one room to another, cosmetic expenses incurred if repositioned, relocating due to the change of home ownership or needs of the patient.
  • Adaptability: system can be deployed in properties where other lifting capabilities may not be acceptable or feasible like rental homes, mobile homes, areas with drop ceilings and multi level buildings with concrete ceiling construction.
  • Quickly Deployed: MLS can be easily installed in a single location in under three hours for use in emergency situations or where short term rehabilitation is required through the available monthly lease program.
As the manufacturer and owner of Mobility Lift Systems I would be very interested in hearing your thoughts on our product. I would enjoy the opportunity to become engaged with those tasked with evaluating patient lifting capability so the Mobility Lift System can better serve the individual and commercial needs of the medically challenged.

    Out Reach lift system is compact and stored against the wall, out of the way of normal room traffic. It's easy to maneuver from the hallway into a small bathroom.

    The swing is comfortable and sturdy. \"It feels pretty comfortable, like having a cushion.\" says Mike, a patient using Out Reach.


    Out Reach is small and compact enough to use in the smallest of rooms and different locations. Because it is easy to install, Out Reach can be reinstalled in another building. Because the lift can be removed easily, it is not dangerous to other children.

    There are no remote controls or cranks to turn, with Out Reach, you are right there with the patient at all times. The patient can see you instead of just hearing you. It makes them feel safe.

    "We like it because it's safe for the child and it is safe for our employee." - Kim, School Administrator.

    "I've worked with many different lifts for the last 13 years... The Out Reach Lift does everything for you." - LaQuita, CNA.


    The lift has really changed John's life. He can go places and do things he hasn't been able to do. Before, we could only give him baths in bed. Now he can actually be lowered into a bathtub. He can also do his therapies on the floor. No other lift system has allowed him to be lowered to the floor.

    Reach Out is small and compact. The pole can be painted to match the molding in your house to blend into the room and not stand out like the room is full of equipment.

    "I didn't want their room to look like a hospital room." - Sabra

  • St. Louis, MO:

    My brother and I picked up the Mobility Lift System and installed it for our brother. We were very pleased and impressed with the technical assistance we received while installing the system.

    Our brother Fred has achieved much better quality of life and Stephanie can care for his needs without any assistance. They are both pleased with the ease of operating the lift system. They both remarked...."This has been a life saver to us. We have found this to be an exceptional product. Thanks". -Elmer L. Powell
