At Advent Home & Access, we design, sell and install overhead patient lift systems as well as wall mounted patient lifts from leading manufacturers such as Waverley Glen and BHM Medical. Call for a free consultation with our Access Specialist to discover how an overhead patient lift can work for you!
Overhead patient lifts, also known as ceiling lifts or track lifts, pick up and move mobility-impaired individuals along a pre-set track. The most common track paths are from bed to bath or from bed to wheelchair, but the track is often extended to access other living spaces as well.
The power lift picks up and moves the patient in complete safety and comfort with no strain or risk to the caregiver. An overhead patient lift can be the difference between maintaining your independence with the help of home care, or having to move into a care facility.
The benefits of a ceiling lift include a perfectly smooth transfer without the bumps and potential pain associated with traditional floor lifts. Ceiling lifts are integrated into the building structure which enables the hands and mind of the caregiver to remain free to attend to the user. Ceiling lifts eliminate the dragging, tugging, manual positioning, and strain that occur with a floor lift.
