Oxford Calibre Bariatric Mobile Hoist

New Customer Offer: Save 5% using code NEWGLEBE5 at checkout.

The Oxford Calibre is an ergonomically designed patient lift for the safe lifting of bariatric patients. Sturdy and robust, yet incredibly versatile, the Calibre has an impressive safe working load of 385kg / 60st and meets the unique demands of bariatric care in today's modern healthcare environment.


If you order an Oxford hoist online, it will arrive partially assembled. While it is relatively easy for someone able-bodied to complete assembly, ALL Oxford hoists that are electrically-operated now feature smart control boxes that require commissioning at the point of delivery for the hoist to accurately function and keep track of service due dates. Glebe therefore offers a full engineer set-up, commissioning and demonstration service anywhere in mainland UK, which is selectable as an option above at no extra charge. Standard delivery is also available, although not recommended unless you are an entitiy with the ability to commission these hoists.

Integrated Digital Weigh-Scale

The powered adjustable legs enable better access around armchairs, wheelchairs and other furniture. Adjustment is achieved by simply pressing the appropriate button on the hand control, eliminating the need for manual leg adjustment.

Powered Leg Positioning

In today's demanding care environment, large patients are becoming more of a challenge for conventional lifts. With a safe working load of 200kg/31st, the Elevate is able to cope with the vast majority of patient handling situations.

Twin Pivoted Front Castors

The Calibre's twin pivoted front castors aid manoeuvrability, particularly over uneven floor surfaces and room thresholds. Removable bump guards help protect the legs from accidental damage.

NEW: Oxford Smart Control Box Info

All Oxford hoists with electric lift feature this new control box as standard that records the exact amount of work completed by the actuator each and every time the lift is used, regardless of a patient€™s weight or lift height covered. It also accurately identifies service interval periods, total number of actuations and work completed, and also detects lift over-loads (exceeding safe working load), all from easy to use, on-board controls complete with a hoist battery level indicator.

Specialist range of slings

To compliment the Oxford Calibre, Oxford have developed a range of bariatric slings. Made from a triple skinned, breathable material, they are particularly suited to patients who may have to remain in the sling for extended periods. Available in five sizes, XL - 5XL.

The Calibre was designed with the five key principles of moving and handling in mind. This direct correlation ensures Oxford's lift designs are simple, safe and above all comfortable to use. This view is shared by our clinical consultant team, who have assisted us in conducting detailed usability surveys to ensure the Elevate meets the true needs of the patient, carer and the environment in which it operates:

  1. Get close to the load
  2. Use a wide stable base
  3. Ensure a comfortable firm grasp
  4. Keep spine close to neutral
  5. Make sure movement is smooth

A large 6-point cradle: Provides an extensive spatial area to assist with patient comfort and positioning.

Company Reviews

Product Reviews

  • Delivery

  • Free UK delivery on all orders
    Some items may have additional delivery options offered at checkout (For example, you can have any mobility scooter or chair delivered, set-up, demonstrated, and all packaging taken away by our engineering team for an £80 fee).
  • Can I get my item faster? Generally, yes. Many items are now available for next-day delivery, which will show on the product page and at checkout, if applicable. If you want something next-day that is not advertised at such, it can still be worth giving us a quick ring on 08000 23 23 35 to determine if this is possible. We can usually confirm a next-day delivery cost and take your order over the phone there and then if you are happy.
  • How long will my order take to arrive? Most items under £150 value are held in fulfillment centers around the UK and are dispatched within 1 working day with 48hr delivery.

    Large items such as scooters and chairs are generally held in UK warehouses by our manufacturers and are dispatched to us the same day if ordered before 2pm. We will then prepare your order when it arrives with us the next working day, and give you a ring to arrange a delivery date, which can be as soon as the next working day.
  • Can I track my order? Yes. Tracking information will be emailed to you automatically once your item(s) have shipped.
  • What if I haven't received my item? 99% of the time, courier deliveries happen without a hitch but if you do end up not receiving your item, just give us a call - We will replace or refund in full any item that is not yet delivered, or gets lost in transit, regardless of when the order was placed.
  • Returns

  • How long do I have to return something? 14 Days from the day you took delivery.
  • Do I have to pay to send something back? If your item is faulty, we will collect it for free on a day that suits you for a full refund or replacement.

    If you want to return something that is not faulty (ie. changed your mind), then we can still collect it for a fee taken from your full refund to cover the cost of collection. Example collection fee rates for non-faulty items: £7.50 (crutches), £15.00 (Wheelchair), £50 (Chair or Mobility Scooter).
  • Are there any re-stocking fees? The only time we will charge a restocking fee is if the product is returned:

    A) Because it is simply unwanted, ordered in error, or returned without packaging (up to 15% value)
    B) Damaged (We would only deduct the parts+labour needed to repair the item)
    C) Bathing, toileting & made-to-measure items (Non Returnable).

    We pride ourselves on being as transparent as possible, and only apply re-stocking fees when absolutely necessary.
  • How do I arrange a return? Simply give us a call on 08000 23 23 35 with your order number ready, or alternatively email and quote your order number, return reason, and contact details and we will come back to you within 1 working day (usually the same working day) to arrange the collection.
  • Postage Refunds On Cancelled Orders Under the CCR (Consumer Contracts Regulations), we are obligated to refund the base postage cost of every order. We include free standard delivery on ALL our items, and as such this charge is already included in all refunds that are given. In compliance with CCR, upgraded postage options such as next-day delivery and engineer home delivery are non-refundable.
  • Warranty

  • How long is the warranty? Every mobility scooter & riser-recliner chair comes with a minimum 1 Year Warranty for free replacement parts.
  • Ok, so you send out free replacement parts under warranty, but what about the labour? Just like if you purchased from a high street shop, if you can return the item to us yourselves, we will repair your equipment free of charge. If however like most people you are not able to return a large scooter or chair to us for repair, we highly recommend you cover yourself with home call-out cover (labour), which is selectable as a £60 option on all our listings. This covers you for up to three in-home engineer call-outs, so if anything goes wrong, you simply need to give us a call with your issues, and we will get our engineers to arrange a visit to get you up and running again at no cost. If you need an engineer but are not covered by call-out warranty, you can always get us out for a one-off call-out fee of £80, and £40 if a return visit is needed.
  • I have a problem with my equipment but I didn't cover myself with engineer call-out cover (labour) - what can I do? It is always best to give us a call on 08000 23 23 35 to see what we can do. As long as you are within the base (parts) warranty period, we can send you the replacement parts needed to make repairs free of charge. Most of our equipment is modular and as long as you have someone able-bodied around to help, we can guide you in swapping out most faulty parts and troubleshooting the equipment. If your repair is more complicated and needs an engineer, we can come out to make repairs for a flat £80 fee anywhere in the UK mainland, and if we need to come back with spare parts, the cost for the second visit is halved to £40.
  • Are there any exclusions to your warranties Just a few:

    1) Perishable (wear and tear) components on mobility products such as getting a puncture.

    2) Damage caused by the user such as scrapes, damage from liquids

    3) Batteries: The max warranty on mobility batteries is 1 year and is only effective if the batteries have been treated properly as per the instructions that came with your product. As such, the procedure for battery complaints is as follows:
    a) Decide whether to pay a deposit for a new set of batteries (refundable if batteries tested as faulty) or wait for the test results.
    b) We will send an engineer (free or at call-out price depending on the level of cover you selected on your vehicle) to take the batteries away for testing. At this point, they will install your new batteries if you decided to put a deposit down on them (see 'a' above).
    c) Your batteries will then be tested professionally with a readout produced and sent to the manufacturer for analysis. If the batteries are deemed faulty, you will either get your battery deposit refunded if you already paid for them, or a new engineer visit arranged to install the batteries under warranty.
    Note: If you did not put a deposit down and the batteries test as user damaged (not faulty), you will be responsible for purchasing a new set of batteries.

    4) Taking your equipment outside the UK. Unfortunately at the moment, we are only UK-Based and cannot extend any engineer services, whether paid for, or included in your warranty outside of the English, Welsh and Scottish Mainland

    5) Any mobility product suffering loss or damage occurring whilst in the possession or control of airport authorities, airlines, baggage handlers or whilst on an aircraft.
  • Equipment Warranties for Business (B2B) Customers

    For business customers, we will uphold the warranty terms stated or selected on any of our products, so long as the products are not rented by the customer to additional persons or parties, whether for free, or for a fee.

    Any equipment that is rented or loaned out by our customers without prior authorisation from ourselves becomes the customer's responsibility to repair and maintain, with all warranty becoming void (although parts can still be returned for a credit if found to be faulty).

    For care homes and institutions, normal use of equipment within a care environment setting is acceptable, so long as the residents are under the direct care of the purchasing organisation.

“When choosing to purchase online, we believe that you shouldn't have to choose between good advice, a good price, and good aftercare. It is our mission to combine all three into every sale that we make.”
