I have a family who is looking at setting up an Active Learning space in their home. They are looking at the Hopsa dress and eventually a straight track (not the H track). Does anyone have recommendations or suggestions for purchasing? I haven't the first clue as to tell them where to go or what to look for. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

One family I knew had track installed that was meant to be used with a lift system. They used it for both the HOPSA dress and to assist in moving their child from the bed to the bathroom. They ran it along a wall so materials (Active Learning) could be hung from the wall. It worked well.

I have also heard of folks using garage door track, but I don't know how that was set up.

There are several methods to install a straight track. We initially used the "flying trapeze" equipment found at Southpaw Enterprises, Inc. This costs over $1,000 but can be hung on a swing set or two eye hooks in the ceiling. You can also use tracks systems found in lifts. These can be mounted in the ceiling or free standing. They range in price. There are other alternatives that may be cheaper - but all systems must be installed properly for safety. They are typically found on-line under "overhead track and trolley systems." You must ensure the track can take the weight. Southpaw Enterprises gives good advice on how to install any equipment properly.

Thank for information on Southpaw. The search terms are very helpful too. I will pass along all the information to the family I work with.
