Ceiling Lifts system by SureHands uses a wide range of options which can restore independence and increase accessibility throughout a home. These lifts provide customizable solutions that will allow physically challenged men, women, and children access the bed, shower, bath or toilet and aid in the changing of clothes, standing, and ambulation, and catheterization, at time independently or with the help of a caregiver. Each person’s needs and abilities are unique. The ability to adapt to various needs is what makes the SureHands ceiling lift system an efficient and superior solution.

These lifts help maximize ability and can make independent living a reality for many people. Using the specially designed body support, self-transferring from wheelchair to toilet, bed, or bath becomes a reality for those who previously needed assistance with these activities. A SureHands ceiling lift also provides safer transfers and handling for users and caregivers. When combined with the body support, a hygiene sling, or a universal sling, the rate of caregiver injury significantly decreases when providing direct care.

“Over the past few decades as a clinician I’ve used a variety of lifts in clinic, school and home settings. The Sure Hands ceiling lifts at the Chanda Center for Health have greatly improved the transfer process for both clinicians and participants. The ease of use and adaptability for people of varying body types and functional mobility levels has been very helpful. The Sure Hands lift eliminates concerns about maneuverability and stability, allowing for a safe and efficient transfer for participants and clinician alike.”
