Ceiling track lifts, or ceiling hoists are installed to lift and move a person in a sling attached to the lift. This facilitates a safe transfer from a wheelchair to a bed, or for longer distances from room to room via installed ceiling track that take a person from bed to bathroom. Ceiling lifts may be used for a short duration such as for rehabilitation, or for long-term use where mobility is more restrictive and permanent.
Moving a person manually can be dangerous for both the patient and the caregiver. Hospitals are using ceiling lifts more and more to avoid injuries (patients or healthcare staff), and Silver Cross sells and installs ceiling track lifts for home use, or small commercial/public settings such as group homes, retirement homes or schools.
Silver Cross stores sell a variety of patient slings to work with Savaria ceiling lifts. Consult us for your specific needs.
