Moving a patient with a disability or limited mobility to and from a bed, chair or wheelchair can be painful for the caregiver and dangerous for their loved one. Although a fixed ceiling lift is a reliable solution, safely and gently lifting an individual from a seated or sleeping position, it’s often a permanent one, requiring tracks to be installed in each room of the patient’s home.

While your loved one may have limited mobility, that doesn’t mean they aren’t still active! They want to move freely throughout their home, and travel with family and friends. For those who still want to hit the open road, the AP-450 Portable Ceiling Lift from Handicare offers the flexibility and freedom to go anywhere the patient does.

Lightweight and compact, the AP-450 can be removed from one track and installed easily on another, whether it’s a permanent ceiling track in a different room of the home or a freestanding lift system that can be packed up for travel to a hotel, cottage or relative’s home.

The benefits of the AP-450 Portable Ceiling Lift

In addition to eliminating the need for multiple motors for different tracks, the AP-450 raises comfort and care to the next level by putting the latest technology and enhanced safety features in the hands of caregivers.
