The story behind the Perfect Lift

Do you know the Perfect Lift?

Perfect Lift was inspired by Tanner, who has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Tanner cannot stand or use his legs or arms; he is entirely dependent on his family. Her mother, Dana Edwards, refuses to let Tanner’s disability dictate what they can and cannot do. She believes that life can still happen for them the way it does for everyone. She had to find a way for Tanner to get back into life and feel safe.

Difficulties in visiting

Tanner suffers from high anxiety and has a fear of falling when being lifted. The social isolation that goes with these types of diseases is heartbreaking, and Dana knew that she needed to make something that could get him to go over to a friend’s house without worrying. When Dana and her family would get invited to barbecues, they always had the same problems: They can’t get into the house with Tanners chair-or there’s no lift for him to use the pool. She had to figure out how he could accomplish these things in other people’s homes.

The Perfect Lift

To be a parent is to live in constant trials. It is often mothers or fathers, faced with a problem, who imagine a product to simplify their lives, this is the case with Perfect Lift. Perfect Lift can get Tanner in the house, on the couch, in the bathroom, and in the pool. Other people can now transfer Tanner. Dana made it, so it’s a two or three-person lift. She understands a lot of people don’t always have the extra hands, but her kids can easily transport Tanner. Purchase here.

A must for travellers

Perfect Lift has made life happen again for Tanner’s family. They love to travel and travelling was exhausting. They needed to bring a lot of equipment or have to rent it, but with the Perfect Lift, they can go now. They are able to lift Tanner on and off the bed, onto any toilet, in and out of any shower or tub, and walk him into the pool or hot tub. They lifted him on a plane, even on a boat. The Perfect Lift is a wonderful tool to help put someone safely onto a “pool lift” without hurting your back or dropping someone wet and slippery. The Perfect lift is made of strong and durable material, water-resistant, washable and able to support up to 300 pounds.
