Ceiling lift on overhead crane from Beram.
With the ceiling lift and fabric bag from Ikea, the user can wash independently: Susanne hangs the bag, which is used to hold laundry on the long handle of the ceiling lift hanger, which holds the bag open. By lowering it to the level of the shower chair she can easily place laundry in the bag, remove it, and move the laundry to the washing machine.
By using a ceiling lift in the bathroom she does not need a shower chair on casters, which is large and cumbersome in tight spaces. She moves from the toilet chair directly to the shower chair. The problem with a ceiling lift with overhead crane is that it is difficult to set up shower walls and curtains. Susanne saw a solution at an interior design store: plastic blinds that can be screwed to the ceiling and lowered. She has not tested this idea yet.
