A longtime LTS customer who lives in the San Francisco Bay area, D.F. is in his late 50’s and has limb-girdle muscular dystrophy.
When the LTS team first met D.F., he, like so many others, just wanted to extend his active life, eliminate the problems of caregiver transfers, and continue working — and our original installation, a simple straight track, allowed him and his family to make this life transition from walking to wheelchair. But then D.F.’s quest for even greater independence would see this simple straight track installation expanded into a multi-track system throughout the household, as well as in his place of business.
Required Ceiling Track Locations
- Indoor swimming/hydro-therapy pool
- Downstairs master bedroom and bathroom
- Upstairs living/TV room
- Upstairs dining room/open kitchen
- Work site wheelchair to toilet
So a total of 5 separate ceiling track systems were necessary to accommodate DF’s personal transfer needs.
After personally researching a number of ceiling track options DF finally opted for a Surehands Lift and Care System solution, principally because the Surehands Body Support System could provide him the best fit and comfort while allowing him to independently perform multiple independent transfers throughout his home and business.
D.F. was having a series of remodels done on his home and decided to integrate the tracks into each remodel, and while each remodel progressed, track systems were installed in temporary rooms until they could be moved to the permanent room locations.
