Handicare has announced today the commercial launch of its A-Series Ceiling Lift System in North America. The A-Series intuitive design puts control functions and diagnostic features in the hands of the caregiver or clinician, while providing additional new features. Built on the proven technology of the Handicare C-Series, the new A-Series ceiling lift increases patient protection while simplifying patient transfers.


Key Features and Benefits of the Handicare A-Series Ceiling Lift:

  • Titling design up to 15° degrees saves time and frustration during patient transfers, this feature also increases life of the lift by putting less strain on the motor


  • Unique antimicrobial strap for reduced infection risk with wear indicator marks and reinforced edges that protect against fraying 


  • Waterproof, ergonomic hand control has an integrated digital display screen with real-time feedback, usage data and diagnostic information


  • 3 operating modes – control, weighing and data collection


  • Lift accommodates multiple size carry bars for increased patient handling versatility


  • Quick Release System (QRS) makes attaching and removing the carry bar from the lift fast and easy

  • Safety features include emergency stop, emergency lowering and low battery indicator


  • Two weight limits: 450 lbs (204 kg) and 625 lbs (284 kg)
