Caring for a loved one with advanced mobility challenges at home can often mean added strain. It’s OK to get some extra help.
Our Patient Care division is known around the world for safe and reliable solutions that can help lift, transfer and reposition while reducing the risk of injury to both the patient and the caregiver. Found in thousands of hospitals, rehab centers, long-term care facilities and nursing homes across North America, our products meet the highest standards for safety in the industry. And now the same products are available to help you care for your loved one in the comfort of their own home to provide continuity of care.
Your Savaria Home Access expert can conduct a free in-home assessment to help select the best solution for caring for your loved one. They can also work with your Occupational Therapist or Hospital Discharge Planner.
Make getting your loved one from point A to point B—such as from bedroom to bathroom—safer, easier and more comfortable. Our motorized ceiling lifts carry the patient in a comfortable sling that’s fitted to the individual’s needs.
Whether you need a temporary solution with a portable lift and gantry system, or a more permanent installation with a fixed track, your Savaria ceiling lift will feature two innovations we developed to make every transfer safer and more reliable.
Our SureClip technology is an important safety feature not found on other ceiling lifts—the clips open outwards instead of inwards. Why is something so simple so important? The outward-facing clips are a more reliable method of securing the sling to the lift—helping to prevent the potential disaster of a mis-clip and fall.
We were also the first manufacturer to use lithium-ion batteries and an optimized transmission to power our ceiling lifts. It’s the same advanced power technology used in electric vehicles is used in your ceiling lift!
Enhanced performance and sustainability
That means your ceiling lift can do an average of 80 cycles with a 200 lb person on a single charge—that’s 50% more than lifts that use lead-acid batteries. All it takes is a daily 15-30-minute charge to keep your Savaria ceiling lift working at full capacity (2-hour charge to go from 0% to 100% charge). Lithium-ion technology is greener with no lead-acid disposal, and requires fewer battery replacements, as it’s built to last five years with normal usage.
Fixed ceiling lifts include a track installed in the ceiling. Safety and security are always of the utmost importance, so the track is designed and engineered to meet the load requirements on the particular lift. The Savaria FastTrack system offers easier installation for a faster set up, so your Home Access expert can get you up and running quickly.
Portable ceiling lifts are a great solution to short-term needs, or in condos or rental units where a fixed-track lift can’t be installed. They’re ideally suited to help transfer your loved one from the bed to a wheelchair. Portable ceiling lifts are easy to operate and installed on a gantry-style frame.
Capacity for the Savaria PL portable lift ranges from 286 – 440 lb. A wide range of slings are available for use with Savaria ceiling lifts, including universal, hygienic, hammock, repositioning and walking styles from our Handicare or Silvalea brands.
Some Savaria Home Access dealers offer portable ceiling lift systems on shorter-term rental contracts. Get connected with your local expert.
