Thread: Ceiling lift question

  1. #1

    Ceiling lift question

    What type of ceiling is needed for a ceiling lift? My room is the basement, and we have popcorn ceilings. Plus there is a light right in the middle over my bed. Would a ceiling lift fit around that?

    The ceiling lift track needs to be attached to ceiling joists (beams) so not to the ceiling itself. Track can be placed in pretty much any configuration and work around or over lights. The vendor can give you a design and bid based on your needs.

    The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.

    Got any recommendations on a good ceiling lift(vendor)?

  4. #4
    Use someone who has a local vendor that can both provide the installation and then provide service. SureHands, Barrier Free, Prism, BHM, Waverly Glen, and Guldmann are good companies. Liko (now owned by Hill-Rom) and Arjo-Huntleigh focus more on institutional installations rather than home.
