Not with most floor based lifts. Some can do it with a ceiling track lift if you have both a lifting and lateral motor system, and a wireless remote, but you are limited to being able to access it from where you have track, unless you can crawl or drag yourself to that area.

In my area, if you call 911 to get picked up from a fall too many times in a short period, you start getting a bill of around $800 for that type of call.
