DATELINE: LAKEVILLE, MA… Opening and closing a door seems like such a simple task, until you try to manage this maneuver while using a wheelchair, walker, or scooter. Automatic door openers are commonplace in commercial settings, or on residential garage doors, but are often not thought of as an alternative for easy access and egress at home. To remedy this situation, Lift & Care Systems of Lakeville, MA, a leading provider of customized mobility solutions throughout the tri-state area of Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut, has announced that it now features the Power Access line of residential door openers and accessories. Power Access has created a slim, lightweight door opener specifically designed for residential use, offering seniors and persons with disabilities a low cost easy-to-install alternative to struggling with manually opening and closing a side hinged door.

Dave Austin, Founder and President of Lift & Care Systems, outlined the advantages of this product line, “Power Access door openers don’t require modification of the door or jambs. They simply plug right into a regular wall outlet and offer a virtually maintenance free way to open and close a door.”

Power Access door openers, which have been featured on ABC-TV's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,” can be controlled by an array of wired or wireless companion controls including: wall switches with push buttons or plates, coded radio transmitters/receivers, or keyless entry systems. In addition, built in safety features include adjustable door hold-open times, the ability to manually open the door, as well as an auto close function.

?SureHands Lift Systems
Lift & Care Systems also offers the SureHands line of patient lift systems which are so remarkable that they have been featured on two episodes of ABC-TV's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition." ?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.
