The Savaria fixed ceiling lift was designed from the ground up for simplicity and purpose. It’s thoughtful design to meet the needs of the patient and the caregiver.
We looked at everything. We knew that we could make a better product by looking at the details and questioning ourselves on how to improve everything we could. Hearing that lifts are not reliable and ready to use is most often due to the old technology of lead acid batteries.
With fewer service calls and far fewer battery replacements, the Savaria ceiling lift easily offers lower cost of ownership.
If you already have a track system installed, you may be able to continue its use by adding a simply conversion kit to a Savaria ceiling lift. A certified installer will verify load handling of your current track system and add the conversion kit. Savaria ceiling lifts play nice with major current and older brands including Arjo Kwiktrack, Handicare, Prism, Tollos, BHM, Liko, Guldmann, Surehands, Horcher and Barrier Free.

Many healthcare professionals were taught that proper body mechanics can eliminate the risk of injury when lifting patients. But newer research shows us that the only safe way to reduce injury to thousands of caregivers is by using a ceiling lift. That said, how can institutions ensure compliance for use of ceiling lifts?
From the first touch, the Savaria ceiling lift is intuitive to use. No extraneous buttons and lights will get in the way of quickly operating the lift to move up and down and side to side. With the lithium ion battery at work, the lift requires charging far less often and can be charged very quickly when needed. Add to that a long product life span with fewer service calls. It’s built to be a lift that caregivers will love to use.
Traditional designs use a clip that opens inward. While that makes the clip easy push, it also introduces a common miss-use issue whereby the caregiver mistakenly believes the sling has been securely fastened when in fact the sling loop is not inside the clip. The Savaria SureClip system opens outward to create a more foolproof securement of sling to lift.
Savaria ceiling lifts feature a no-fray strap design with channel stitching, preventing accidental twisting of the strap and reducing abrasion found in traditional designs. The long lasting lift strap eliminates one of the most common early life service issues of replacing a frayed strap.
Easy to clean and waterproof (IP67), the handset is designed with hospital standards in mind. A robust membrane cover prevents moisture ingress and the durable design is built for long life.
From installation to required inspections or a service need, the ultra lightweight design makes everything easier and faster. Servicing can be done on a fixed lift without removal from the track, often without any tools.
