Patient Lift Tracking Systems

The lift unit is only part of a well-functioning overhead lift system. A complete and flexible rail system is just as important. We offer a variety of options for a range of functions, installation types, and settings.

Patient Lift Tracking Systems:

  • Straight Rails: Sometimes a simple straight section of track inside a single room provides the lifting and transfer capabilities required.
  • Complex Rails: Often, a more complex transfer lift rail system is required to meet the patient’s needs. Straights and Curves can be combined with switches and turntables to provide access wherever it is needed. Continuous tracking sometimes require carpentry – so that the channel over the doorway allows the door to open/close without interfering with the track.
  • X-Y Gantry: A three piece patient lift system with two parallel fixed rails and a perpendicular moving “boom” permits coverage under the entire X-Y rail system. Advantages include optimal flexibility (easily made adjustments; front to back and side to side), full coverage of the room, and easy transfer. Furniture location can also be altered with no impact to transfer capability
  • Portable Track: Manufacturers even have portable track systems that can be installed quickly without disturbing the surrounding walls or ceiling. These systems may be helpful when there is a short term need for assistance.

My only regret is not having gotten our portable ceiling lifts sooner. We waited too long and my wrists, shoulders and back could take no more. Please advise others not to wait. I highly recommend this product for ALS patients; it is the only safe way to transfer someone who no longer has use of the arms and legs. I beg of you to get the word out so others get the relief they need. Everyone involved were most supportive. Our sincere appreciation for all your help in getting the job done as soon as possible.

I was satisfied with everything. The cost, the work, and the workers. The workers were very nice, and problem solved as the built it. They just did a great job.

Ed and I just wanted to thank you and your company for all the time you spent out here in our home in Brookfield. We were really pleased and comfortable brainstorming options with you and you definitely gave us ideas to think about. You are really good at your job. I only wish that more of the companies that I interact with on a daily basis about my daughter’s medical needs were as responsive and respectful as you are. There’s comfort in knowing that there’s a professional company ready to meet our needs and just a phone call away.

We highly recommend EHLS’ consulting and contracting services to make your home or place of work accessible. EHLS is qualified, professional and creative. Without exaggeration, EHLS is one of the best companies we have had the opportunity to work with.
