    I need info for portable lift with track system

    Does anyone know of any lift systems for a quad with a track that I could attach to my ceiling for transferring from bed to wheelchair?
    I don't want a regular hoyer lift because there is no room in my house.
    Thanks in advance

    What you are looking for is called a ceiling track lift. Do you own your home? There are a number of companies that do these, and all will have someone come to your house and help you design a system and give you a bid. If you can't attach to the ceiling joists (such as in a rental) there are also free-standing track lift systems available, such as the Arjo-Huntleigh EasyTrack.

    Look at some of these companies who specialize in home (vs. institutional) installations:

    SureHands: http://www.surehands.com/
    Barrier Free: http://www.barrierfreelifts.com/prod...ts-cm3-21.html
    Horcher: http://www.horcherlifts.com/lifts.htm
    Waverly Glen: http://www.prismmedicalltd.com/medic...-products.html

    These companies specialize in institutional installations but some will also do home installs:
    Arjo-Huntleigh: http://www.arjohuntleigh.com/product...ceiling-lifts/
    Liko (now owed by Hill-Rom): http://www.hill-rom.com/usa/Products...ient-Handling/

    Thanks KLD, I live in a house. My mother owns it.
    Yes I'm looking for a portable ceiling track lift, that will attach to a beam.
    I'm not looking for a free standing lift, All I need is about 6-8 feet of the rail system. No bends just straight.
    I can have a friend that is a handyman install it for me, I've looked at the links but these lifts are weird, not the same I've seen at the hospitals/
    There is also no pricing on these web sites ;/
    What do you think about voyager or maxisky, if I bought that plus rail system

    Both are good lifts, but I am not sure they can be used for in-home installations. You need to contact the local vendor (through the manufacturer is the best way to do this) and get an estimate/bid for your set up for pricing. Installation can be tricky, so I would hesitate to have someone who has never done such an installation before do it for me. My mother's was installed by the vendor.
