Ceiling Mounted Lift in Holladay Utah
State: UT, Utah
Project Type: Ceiling Lift and Transfer System
The wife did many years of lifting and transferring of her husband from room to room. Even with the help of a caregiver and physical therapy, life was still pretty challenging with transfers. The mobile floor lift this couple was using was bulky, heavy and the legs of the unit were very difficult to wedge under the bed and around other obstacles like side tables and chairs. Getting the mobile floor lift into position was work in itself. Then, back health problems ensued. They have a beautiful home and wanted to stay in it for life. After they experienced a ceiling mounted lift, they knew they had found the right solution. Life became instantly easier and transferring to the shower and other rooms in a safe and timely manner were made possible because of the ceiling lift.
Vaulted Ceiling Lift Installation
Installing a ceiling lift of this type on vaulted ceiling requires highly skilled hands. A technician has to account for the slanted angle of the vaulted ceiling with custom brackets and extensions so that the rail of the lift remains at the ideal height. Another aspect of this customer ceiling lift installation is that it complements the natural design of the house and doesn’t look like traditional medical equipment. Careful measurements and modifications of doorways also had to be taken into account. This is definitely NOT a DIY installation. Only certified and trained technicians should attempt to install a ceiling lift on vaulted ceilings of this nature.
Watch a Ceiling Lift In Action
The actual ceiling lift shown here is a different project, and it is shared here for demonstration purposes only. Watch this customer as she flies from one room, through doorways, down hallways, turns corners and transfers into the bathroom of her home in ONE transfer. That’s pretty amazing!
We can now stay in our home for life!
