My thought is if this winch can be installed in the ceiling securely that it should work. The install would be a big part, but once installed it would take little room. But is there a vest that would work well with this? Or I'm also thinking some kind of bar that I could hold under my arms while it lifts me up enough to get a chair or bench under me then I could transfer back into my chair. This winch also has a wireless remote.
abacoian I'd say it could work as long as it's mounted safely and securely. If you could get someone to fabricate a steel bar with a hook on each end, you could hook that bar onto the winch hook and use a regular sling.
So basically get one of these made that'll hook onto the winch -

It says that it will hold 220 pounds, and I'm only about 135 pounds. Having one of these installed in my ceiling would mean that with just one otther petite lady, we could get me up off the floor and back sitting in my wheelchair. Have any of you here done such a scandalous thing?
