Classic user industries such as the automotive industry are not the only ones to use Kromer spring balancers and zero-gravity balancers. Some customers use our cable hoists in completely different areas with great creativity. In close cooperation with us, the users have developed unusual and very lucrative applications for cable hoists.
Carl Stahl Kromer spring balancers and zero-gravity balancers can be found in medicine, equestrian sports, and at work stations for people with disabilities. They are used very efficiently and in a great many ways. Discover examples of how Carl Stahl Kromer cable hoists can add utility not only as practical handling devices for industrial tools, but in entirely new ways. You may already have a particular idea that you would like to implement in cooperation with us. Feel free to contact us at any time.
Carl Stahl Kromer balancers are ideal aids in the area of medicine, where they are used in various ways. The robust handling devices are integrated into X-ray machines, for instance, to securely hold the movable X-ray head, which can weigh up to 100 kg. It remains stable in the desired position, regardless of whether it is currently being used or not.
A further interesting application can be found in the area of medical technology with Biotronik’s Zero-Gravity lead coat. Those who, in performance of their duties, must wear heavy lead aprons that put a strain on the body can be effectively supported by an innovative mount based on a Kromer balancer. The user’s lead apron is held by a cable hoist so that the physician can enjoy great load relief and work with much more freedom of movement. To minimize hazards, our balancers have outstanding standard safety equipment and are manufactured to be stable and of high quality.
Spring balancers are also used for a new invention in equestrian sports – the Multi Fidgi riding and training aid. The device consists of innovative auxiliary reins with adjustable roller springs. Such a device is of great utility in equestrian sports. Without pressure or compulsion, the special reins support your horse in finding the correct neck extension position and building muscle. At the same time, the flexible auxiliary reins assist beginning riders in finding light, constant contact.
Our products are also used creatively in the area of horse therapy (veterinary rehabilitation technology) Based on Kromer balancers, the patented PM Horse Swinglifter was developed to relieve the locomotor system of ailing horses in the long term. The horse retains full freedom of movement, including both standing and lying. Keeping the horse in constant contact with the ground, the balancer helps bear the animal’s body weight. The load relief allows the locomotor system to heal better.
Load relievers are ideal for supporting people with disabilities. They are already being used at work stations for the disabled. The balancers relieve workers of loads and allow them to perform their duties while exerting less force. The effective support allows them to reach their full potential and perform a wider range of duties.
