Spring is officially here, which means we can finally spend time outside!

Is your front entrance accessible? Is it ready for the spring?

The BFA, LLC. team just finished this front deck and ramp in Dearborn Heights, MI.

Now our client will be able to soak up the sun, on the porch, while in her wheelchair. Remember, accessible modifications are all about Quality of Life! I think it is safe to say that our client will be living a better quality of life with her new deck and ramp.

Wellness Wednesday

Happy Wednesday Friends!

In honor of Wellness Wednesday, lets talk about exercise!

There are many kinds of exercises you can do, no matter your age or ability.

What Tyrell told The mighty in his interview is right, “Being disabled, we always have to adapt.” He says "started small" at home, using water battles as weights and from there progressed. Even if you cannot move a certain muscle, ask for help.

Watch the video below that Tyrell Eddy and Lisa Rivera from The Axis Project in New York City, made on 7 simple exercises you can do in a wheelchair.

Click here for the full article and read Tyrell and Lisa's descriptions.

I will leave you all with this quote from Tyrell, 

“Even if you have no mobility, but can move your head, keep moving your head. Keep moving something, The more you do it, the better it gets, the stronger you get.”

What is your favorite exercise? Which exercise looks interesting to you?

Ceiling Lifts 101

Arjo Huntleigh Ceiling Lift System installed by BFA, LLC.

Arjo Huntleigh Ceiling Lift System installed by BFA, LLC.

Ceiling lifts are a godsend for caregivers and clients who want to be independent in their homes. There are ceiling lifts for every need and every budget.

Since this equipment is meant to lift a person and transfer them to another room, you want to make sure it is reliable, sturdy and is able to complete the services you need. Also, take into consideration that ceiling lifts are long term solutions, thus you should think about this as an investment.

The most important parts of ceiling lifts are the quality and the installation. BFA LLC. is a certified dealer and installer for ARJO Huntleigh premium quality lifts. We have been working with these equipments for years and they are hospital grade, so we know they are sturdy.

Ceiling lifts have different forms of installation, so there are lots of things an installer needs to consider structurally before hand.

In above images, the lift is installed next to our clients bed and has a ceiling track that goes to the bathroom. This gives our client independence to transfer from her bed to the bathroom and back.

The installation for this ceiling tract required our team to go to the attic in order to securely bolt it. After the installation is completed, our technician needs to do a series of tests with weights around the whole track.

As you can see, ceiling lifts are a great investment, but you want to make sure that the provider is knowledgeable and has expertise with this equipment.

Do you have any questions? Want to know more about the kinds of lifts we provide?

Cerebral Palsy Awareness!

March 25th is Cerebral Palsy Awareness!

Today, we want to bring awareness to CP. 

12153_10152891621489922_3332822376192903043_n.jpg

I am trying to do my part to help to educate people about CP, as my 23 year old daughter, Sofía has Cerebral Palsy. As you all know, Sofia is the reason BFA LLC. exists!

Children and adults with Cerebral Palsy deserve more research into the cause and prevention, more research into treatment options, new thinking about the standard of care, more clinicians and scientists who specialize in it. ......

Please look up UCP- Detroit, http://www.ucpdetroit.org if you are interested in getting involved, needs resources or other information.
