http://www.harborfreight.com/2500-lb...rol-61297.html I know some can get on and off the floor with no assistance. I can't I'm looking for a way that will work. A hoyer lift would but it costs from a few hundred to a few thousand, and it would take too much space.

My thought is if this winch can be installed in the ceiling securely that it should work. The install would be a big part, but once installed it would take little room. But is there a vest that would work well with this? Or I'm also thinking some kind of bar that I could hold under my arms while it lifts me up enough to get a cair or bench under me then I could transfer back into my chair. This winch also has a wireless remote.

Appreciate feedback and ideas. Thank you.
