Phillips Lift Systems
Phillips Lift Systems was established because of a personal experience that inspired me to design and develop our "Tush-Push" product.. The original idea of the powered toilet lift (Tush-Push) came to be because of my Grandmother who was in very bad health with terminal bone cancer. My Grandmother would spend her winters in Florida and the rest of the year in Indiana. In 1988 I was told she had 6 months to live. It was Christmas and I knew she would not be able to go to Florida for the winter. My wife and I decided to take her on a 2-week trip to visit her friends in Florida and to say her good-byes. We stopped in Florida for the night to eat at Cracker Barrel that was Grandmas favorite place to eat. Grandma went to the restroom and was gone for a long period of time. A lady came to our table and told us my Grandmother could not get up from the toilet. She didnít have enough strength in her legs. It took three people to help her up. My thoughts were, ďWe can put a man on the moon, but we canít get a person off the toilet.Ē So I decided to address the problem. In a portable and user friendly-machine I now call the Tush Push Powered Toilet Lift.
Unfortunately I didnít get my machine perfected before my grandmother passed away. But she left me with a great idea that has helped many people and will continue to help many more.
