Hi,my name is Sheena O’Donoughue. I have only just found this website after attending a seminar by Venerina Johnston from Aussieland. I am a Canadian Occupational health Physiotherapist and was involved in the initial set-up in our city of overhead ceiling lifts. We have 89% od ofour beds in the hospital I work in , with overhead ceiling lifts. In my experience the patient handling staff have readily adapted to this type of lift . we went with (after much research), the Arjo lift which can lift up to 1200lbs. We find these lifts work exceptionally well for all patients but particularily for our barriatric population.
