Portable ceiling mounted lifts are removable battery-powered hoists that can be carried from room to room and attached to multiple overhead track systems to lift, transfer, and transport residents with physical limitations to and from a bed, toilet, bath, chair, and the floor. Ceiling mounted lifts are raised and lowered by a motor that is activated via a control panel on the hoist or a handheld remote controller.
Ceiling lifts utilize a sling or harness to support residents as they are lifted. Manufacturers typically offer their own line of slings to be used with their lifts. A variety of slings are available to address multiple lifting and transfer needs. Some examples include slings made to support residents in a reclined position, slings made for toileting and bathing applications, as well as slings made to support the resident during un-weighted walking or gait training.
