A ceiling lift is a motorized device that lifts and transfers a person from point to point along an overhead track. The track can be ceiling mounted or may be portable (free-standing track). The device incorporates a sling for the person being transferred.A fully motorized ceiling lift transfers in an up and down motion, as well as from laterally along the length of the rail. A portable ceiling lift transfers a patient in an up and down motion using a motor; moving the person side to side is done manually. Ceiling lifts provide a safer way to handle patients for transfers in the bedroom, bathroom and other areas of the home. Caregivers and patients are both safer when a lift is utilized.
