Surehands assistive lifts in more hotels each year!

As the needs of travelers with disabilities are more and more recognized by the travel industry, amenities grow and evolve as well. We're excited to watch an increasing number of hotels add assistive lift devices to their rooms for travelers who have limited mobility and need help getting in and out of bed as well as the pool.

SureHands is one company who's got their eye on this rolling ball! Their lift devices are top knotch, and include intricate track systems, supportive slings, cups or frames, frictionless slides, and prone-style trollies that are geared for all needs from independent and assistive living to institutional use. Only recently did these top-end systems start making their way into the hotel industry, and already SureHands is gaining momentum with this great idea.

SureHands has taken on Las Vegas by storm, and has had a welcoming response from the Bellagio, Treasure Island, Mirage, Both Wynn Properties and the new luxurious ARIA at the City Center. Next time you're in Vegas, make sure to check them out!

Hello - Thank you for the nice blog post about the Vegas Hotels that have the Surehands Lift and Care Systems. As the California and Nevada Surehands Dealer since 1997, I designed and installed those systems and in December I added another hotel property to the list. At the Palazzo/Venetian Resort there is a spa called the Canyon Ranch Spa. There we installed Surehands Ceiling Tracks over the two spa pools for both men and women as the hotel was looking for a better, more discreet way to access these areas instead of using the standard pool side lift. If you can give me your email address I would be happy to send you some videos and photos of the various room and spa. I can be reached at CRAIG@LTSPEC.COM. And thanks again for spreading the word to help those who want to travel and have great accessible rooms.
