Savaria PL Portable lift

The Savaria portable ceiling lift was designed from the ground up to be a truly portable lift – one that can be easily carried from room to room or place to place when needed. At the heart of the system, a lithium battery system delivers patient lifting power with significantly less product weight than industry competitors.



Designed for safe lifting and transferring in various care settings


Built for a 10-year lifespan with regular maintenance for durability.

Easy Installation

Simplified setup for quick and efficient use by caregivers

Peace of mind, reducing risks

Whether you are a patient or a caregiver, a Savaria Portable Ceiling Lift provides security for lifting and transferring in a home setting. The lift helps prevent the risk of injury to caregivers, including back strains that are common occurrences with manual lifting. Patients can feel peace of mind and security when moving or transferring using the Savaria lift. For some, a Savaria ceiling lift is the solution for leaving the hospital sooner and recovering in the comfort of their home.

A lithium-ion battery delivers the power

  • More lift cycles: delivers 50% more lift cycles per charge than industry average, average of 80 cycles on one charge
  • Less charging time: recharges from full depletion in only 2 hours, with daily charge needed of only 15 to 30 minutes
  • Fewer replacements: battery replacement estimated at every 5 years with normal usage
  • Greener: no lead acid disposal issues and longer life of battery
  • No memory effect: battery does not deteriorate from constant charging
  • Ultra light: only 11lb makes the lift easy to carry
  • Small yet powerful: available in 286 lb (130 kg) and 440 lb (200 kg) capacity models

Flexible use

The Savaria portable lift can be paired with the Savaria Gantry for semi-permanent use. This is an ideal set up for patient transfer from bed to wheelchair. In locations where a fixed track cannot be installed, such as a condominium or rental property, the portable lift + gantry delivers a compact lifting system for short or longer term use.

SureClip system

It’s different for safety

Traditional designs use a clip that opens inward. While that makes the clip easy push, it also introduces a common miss-use issue whereby the caregiver mistakenly believes the sling has been securely fastened when in fact the sling loop is not inside the clip. The Savaria SureClip system opens outward to create a more foolproof securement of sling to lift.
