UpLyft™ is the first known FDA-compliant Self Transfer System (“STS”) from bed to wheelchair for people with limited mobility. In 1 minute, a person can self-transfer him/herself with UpLyft™ from a flat (supine) position in bed into their wheelchair or vice versa. UpLyft™ replaces slings, body boards, and other inferior “lift to stand” mechanisms that require nursing assistance and physical force to transfer individuals with mobility challenges.

Q&A with Craig Misrach, President and Board Member at UpLyft

Media 7 | December 8, 2020

Craig Misrach, President and Board Member at UpLyft joined the organization in 2018, spearheading the company's product launch and commercialization efforts. He began his career at Deloitte where he audited various lower middle-market businesses as a Senior Accountant. Maintaining an active Certified Public Accountant (CPA) license, Mr. Misrach serves on the Board of Directors of Aculief and the Jewish Community Foundation, San Diego. MEDIA 7: Could you tell us about your career journey from Deloitte to UpLyft? CRAIG MISRACH: I started my career at Deloitte as a public accountant and auditor just trying to get the work experience necessary to obtain my CPA license in the State of California. Little did I know how working in janitor closets at client’s office locations whereby doing your job entailed asking questions and information requests from people who didn’t want to talk to you could build so much character! I left Deloitte to join my client Silvergate Bank where I was the Controller in charge of managing ~$500M in assets at the age of 25. Not only did I gain management responsibility at Silvergate overseeing and working with a staff of 9 individuals, but I also was able to observe first-hand what it was like working in a fast-paced growing entrepreneurial culture as we grew from ~20 to ~70 employees in a short two year period. I decided to go obtain my MBA at the University of Virginia to round out my skill sets and start a new business from the ground up. This was not a traditional path to do so at the time as most graduate students would go get their MBA from a top-tier program to become an investment banker, management consultant, or marketing manager at a Fortune 500 company. I knew from the time early in my career, and in watching my father start his own real estate business growing up in Ohio, that with hard work and perseverance I could start a successfu
