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.
Savaria ceiling lifts were designed from the ground-up to be better. They feature lithium ion battery technology that is optimized to provide faster lifting and many lifts on one charge. The battery technology and operation has been designed so well that even the battery has a 3-year warranty (most others have just a 1 year battery warranty).
Taking a look at a Savaria ceiling lift, you will figure out how to use it very quickly. It’s extremely simple and intuitive to use with only a few buttons. The SureClip system is a unique and powerful safety feature with its open-out clip that provides a more foolproof way to attach the sling. Available in portable or fixed styles, Savaria ceiling lifts can be installed or set up in your home to meet your specific needs.
Savaria ceiling lifts have a 3-year manufacturer parts warranty, which includes the battery!
