Ceiling Lift Walking Track System and Mobility Harness

One element of our DaCapo Disability Services programming is ensuring an accessible and inclusive environment where all of the individuals we serve can enjoy barrier-free movement.

Walking is the basis of mobility. For many of our mobility-challenged clients, walking is independence and joy. And this ability to move around the facility with assistive devices like a ceiling lift walking track system, provides dignity. For our clients, enabling movement provides positive mental health.

With an expanded track to complement our existing equipment, several clients could enjoy using the track at the same time, increasing our capacity to serve this vulnerable and valuable population.

What is a ceiling lift?

A ceiling lift is a motorized device that lifts and transfers a person from point to point along an overhead track.

A ceiling lift uses a rechargeable battery to power a motor that lifts a person in a sling up and down. The lift can then be moved by hand or with a powered feature for side to side motion, or to follow a track to another point.

The sling is fitted for the person’s size and abilities. Ceiling lifts are a much safer way to move a person–ensuring both the safety of our clients as well as the prevention of injury for our support workers.

Fundraising Goal: $25,000.
Who will we help? Individuals with mobility challenges in the LFS DaCapo Disability Services Department.
