Mechanical Bar Attachment for bed / hi-lo mat to facilitate transfers

My husband is a C7 quad and I was wondering if anyone has come across a Mechanical device that would facilitate self transfers by enabling the patient to use his arms to pull himself up to a seated position.  

Something similar to this could be used for exercise if attached to a hi-lo matt as well as potentially empowering self transfer if it were replaced with a stable T bar type attachment.  

Anyone have ideas on where I could buy one of these?
