Savaria PL Portable Ceiling Lift

The Savaria portable ceiling lift was designed for those that need assistance from getting from bed to wheelchair. It was built from the ground up with a lithium-ion battery system and weighs significantly less than the lifts made by other manufacturers in the industry. Whether you are a patient, caregiver, or the Savaria portable ceiling lift provides multiple benefits and helps prevent the risk of injuries during transfers.

Gantry for Portable Lift

Transferring from the bedroom to a wheelchair, or bedroom to the bathroom can be very difficult for some. However, when paired together, the installation of Savaria Gantry and the PL portable lift offer a perfect solution for short term transfer needs or when a fixed ceiling lift track is not feasible. The use of this system reduces the risk of injury for the caregiver and provides a safe and secure transfer for the person in need of assistance. Easy to assemble and dissemble, the Gantry system allows for quick installation and provides maximum flexibility.

  • Trolley attaches to the track of the ceiling lift, and acts as wheels for the lift mechanism. You need at least one trolley for each track.
