Non-profit organization SOMIVAL (Sport and Relaxation for Disabled People) from Waregem, Belgium, is a sports club for people with a disability or reduced mobility. SOMIVAL offers several activities such as athletics, wheelchair hockey, boccia, horse riding and swimming. The latter takes place in the swimming pool at sports center De Treffer. To allow smooth and easy access into the pool, the club uses two Handi-Move mobile pool lifts. Lucien De Bels and Carlos Van Lauwe, both committee members of the non-profit organization, are delighted with the equipment.
Monsieur Doceul : lorsque mon épouse est sortie de l’hôpital en décembre dernier, elle avait complétement perdu l’usage de ses jambes. Je l’aide au quotidien et la plus grosse difficulté que je rencontrais, c’était de la soulever jusqu’aux toilettes. Nous avons failli tomber tous les deux.
A lot of customers love their SureHands lifts, but it is something special when a customer rises to the level of advocate. That is what we have in Mary Caruso! A mom with two children with Friedreich’s ataxia, it is second nature for Mary to speak up for what she believes in. “We have your lifts in our home since 2005. I remember the day my kids, Sam and Alexandria, sat through multiple demonstrations from the different vendors. They knew immediately that the SureHands lift was for them. To this day they call their lifts the lift with dignity. Those lifts have traveled to college and back home. They have used the lifts independently for many years, through college etc. Currently, they use the lift with assistance. It is so versatile yet lets people maintain dignity.”
It’s so nice not to have nurses come in to take care of me anymore… all because of my SureHands® lift system. And, yes, I’m still taking showers for as long as I want even though it’s been seven years since I purchased my lift. Recently I calculated the amount of money I have saved in nursing costs since I got my lift. It’s approximately $250,000. Keep in mind this does not account for inflation; I’m sure they make far more now!!!
Die Stadt Heilbronn hat das Freizeit- und Solebad Soleo mit einem mobilen Schwimmbadlifter ausgestattet, um Menschen mit körperlichen Einschränkungen den Einstieg ins Becken zu erleichtern. In der nächsten Freibadsaison wird zusätzlich in einem der Heilbronner Freibäder ein Lifter zur Verfügung stehen. Für die Inklusion behinderter Menschen ist der Zugang zu Schwimmbädern ein wichtiges Thema.

We can let Thomas glide from his living room to the outside, all the way to the swimming pool, and then lower him into the water in one move.
I want to commend you and your employees for two decades of exemplary service.
I have been using a SureHands Lift & Care System for over 20 years, in Connecticut and now in Florida, and it is by far the best lift system out of any of them! The Body Support picks me up so I can move with a lot less work than a sling. A Palm Beach Fire & Rescue worker recognized the difference and told me he thought it was the best system he had seen.
