Ceiling lifts make safer transfers for both the caregiver and individual being transferred. They also require less space to transfer, and in some cases individuals can transfer on their own using specialized a specialized harness or sling.

The use of a ceiling lift can eliminate the need for costly bathroom remodeling and allow for safer transfers to and from the bed, toilet, and bathtub or shower. Custom configurations can route the track system throughout the home or cover virtually any point in a single room.

We perform factory certified installation of ceiling lift systems, in addition to the drywall, carpentry, trim work and finishing to make your home look beautiful.  Our technicians are factory trained and certified for installation and service.

BILD is run by a team of experienced physical and occupational therapists who are experienced experts in transfer safety. Our therapists specialize in transfer strategies, harness selection and proper use of the ceiling lift systems. We can instruct you in how to perform transfers and positioning safely, and in some cases how to use a standing harness for supported weight bearing.  We have many solutions available and will meet your needs and provide training after installation with a physical therapist who specializes in ceiling lift use for safe transfers, sling placement, and positioning strategies.
