    Rainman, a lot depends on what features you need, and how much coverage you want, but you are usually looking at starting at $8,000-10,000 installed. All the major companies are more than happy to come to your home and give you a free estimate and design 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.

    Thanks for the reply. It is expensive. I really thing I will look to move forward but first I will need to do some updates to my house to make it more practical in the house.

    Rainman, You can always ask about buying a used/reconditioned unit. That will knock off a few sheckels. They will still guaranty the unit. I did that and saved several hundred dollars.

    My husband is dependent on assistance with the SureHands. The reasons we chose a ceiling track system rather than a portable lift is that I as his caregiver have a herniated disc and making turns with w portable lift really hurt. We also do not have a lot of space for maneuvering a portable lift. Even though he needs assistance putting on the SureHands body support, he still has some control with the remote that he would not have with a portable lift.
