Dave Austin, Founder and President of Lift & Care Systems in Lakeville, MA, was recently invited to Belgium to celebrate his success as a top US distributor of SureHands patient lift systems. Handi-Move International, the manufacturer of innovative patient lift systems distributed under the name of SureHands in the United States, feted Austin at a gathering of worldwide employees and representatives at the company’s state-of-the-art facilities in Ninove, Belgium.

Austin commented on his trip to Handi-Move International headquarters by saying, "It’s exciting to see first-hand the progress that Handi-Move continues to make as a leader in engineering the best solutions for persons with disabilities, and to have the opportunity to preview their newest innovations which will be introduced worldwide in 2008. Continuing advances in their product line is a hallmark of the SureHands system, promising an even brighter future for our users and caregivers."

For Austin, the most significant aspect of being the exclusive distributor of SureHands patient lift systems in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut has been the education that he has received from the users of SureHands systems and their caregivers. Noted Austin, "Not only has this system of ceiling mounted lifts enabled thousands of users with disabilities to have easier access to the basics of bed, bath, or toilet, but, amazingly, it’s also able to assist them changing clothes, standing and ambulating, taking a swim or even mounting a horse."

?SureHands Lift Systems
SureHands patient lift systems are so remarkable that they have been featured on two episodes of ABC-TV's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition." During these episodes a SureHands lift & care system was installed to help make a home ADA compliant and enable the resident to transfer and accomplish his normal activities for daily living. This multi-directional SureHands system was mounted to the ceiling connecting the bedroom to the bath, allowing the resident greater mobility, free of floor based obstacles.
