Ceiling lift supports living independently

If you have lost the ability to transfer manually but you still have limited range of motion with adequate muscle tone, it may be possible for you to self-transfer with different motors and track systems. This system can support your transfer from your bed to wheelchair, toilet or bath; to be as independent as possible. This system can lift you from the ground and has a lifting capacity of 440 lbs. The motor, which operates on rechargeable batteries, is quiet with a soft stop and start motion.

Ceiling lift systems can support your caregiver as well

Let the motor help you with the strain of lifting and lowering. Easily transfer your client or loved one laterally along the track system once they are put-in position.

Transfers to bed, bath or toilet have never been easier. All SureHands® track systems can be used with either SureHands® body support or SureHands® slings. This can accommodated most individuals regardless of their disability. SureHands® track systems are perfect for professional as well as private settings.

Independent transfer from wheelchair to bed

You can also use a ceiling motor with a SureHands® Body Support to move between your bed and your wheelchair. You decide when you get up or go to sleep, using the manual remote control.

Customized solutions

Avoid costly remodeling of spaces that are not ideally set up for transfers. With numerous off-the-shelf accessories to choose from (e.g. curved and traverse tracks, switches and turning disks just to name a few). SureHands® offers you provided options to choose from.

Into the bath with the SureHands® Body Support

The SureHands® Body Support is made from stainless steel and is rust resistant. It does not have any components that absorb moisture so it can be wiped dry and is easy to clean and disinfect.

Ideal for the toilet

Maintaining skin integrity, excellent hygiene, and independence is especially important for people with spinal cord injuries. That is why the Surehands Body Support and ceiling lift system is the ideal lift to maintain and/or improve quality of life.


Distance control anywhere on the ceiling track

SureHands® provides magnetic contacts for use with the 2800 L and the 2805 IR ceiling motors, which can be placed anywhere along the track to ensure that the motor will stop at certain predetermined places (e.g. middle of the toilet, and on the charging pins).

Discreet appearance blends with each interior

With its grey finish and muted, aesthetic styling, the ceiling motor blends nicely into most interiors.

Mechanical emergency down and dual controls

As an additional safety measure, a mechanical emergency down has been incorporated that can be operated independently.

Damian loaned us a Garaventa Stair Trac to try out, and also brought over another wheelchair dolly to try as an alternative to installing a stair lift. There’s no substitute for actually trying something instead of watching a video online and my sister and I were able to make an informed choice about how to help Dad get in and out of the house safely. Damian is a gem, and Thrive for Life is a fantastic resource for helping elders stay at home safely for as long as possible. Thank you, Damian!

Damian came promptly to consult with me during a most stressful time when my spouse was in the hospital and I needed to make bathroom modifications to make it accessible. Damian gave me invaluable information and advice on how to best achieve this. He is very professional and most importantly, compassionate and sensitive to my needs. He was also patient and responsive to my questions and concerns.

Ms. Cath recommended a bath trolley for my brother who has cerebral palsy. He cannot stand/sit on his own and used to take a bath at the bathroom floor. It is super helpful not only to my brother but also for his workers who carry him everyday going to the bathroom.

Ms. Cath is really amazing providing ideas and equipments that can work well for my brother. Thank you so much Ms. Cath

Damian and his company Thrive for Life were amazing to work with. From start to finish, Damian and his whole team were extremely responsive, prompt and attentive towards our needs. What’s great about Damian is that he communicates well with us ( the client ) and bridges the gap between the home owner , architect and contractor. Damian collaborated well with our architect and contractor to bring our vision to reality. Of all the other home lift providers in town, Damian was the most courteous, respectful of our time and responsive. Not only that, it was the best priced home lift in Hawaii!

From ordering to installation, Damian helped with the shipping, delivery and installed the lift promptly. Him and his crew did the installation quick and efficiently, and did not leave a mess which left our contractor happy! Most subs leave a mess of the job site, but not Damian and Thrive for life!

Even after installation, we had a minor issue with our lift due to someone untrained using it. Damian was extremely quick to respond and guide us through shutting it down properly to ensure there was no damage to the lift. He was great from the beginning ( before payment ) , and even better after installation ( post payment).

Damian and Thrive for life are of the highest caliber professionals that are a dream to work with. I would highly recommend Thrive for life for all of your accessibility needs!

At first look, it appeared a ramp would not be possible. The two hour job turned into a 7 hour job. It turned out AMAZING!!. Fit like a glove! We feel so lucky and fortunate to have this durable, weatherproof ramp that will last for years to come!! Outstanding professionalism throughout the job. I can not praise this company enough!!

We worked with Cat to design an accessible bathroom for an elder. Cat is extremely helpful at conceptualizing not only how accessibility needs to meet the current moment but also what to think about for the future in the likely case of a decline in a person’s physical mobility. She is very thoughtful in how she communicates with clients and she meets people where they are at – especially because it is an emotional process in terms of accepting one’s own physical limitations and the need for change in the home environment to support that. She thinks of everything including the angle of the mirror on the wall, the type of tile to use on the floor, the specific location of grab bars, and every other minute detail that would otherwise be lost in our design. She has provided valuable input for our project. I only wish there were more companies like this around because this is such a great need right now for differently abled folks and elders in our communities.
