Garage Door opener that rides on the rail

Hello help, Several months ago I help my friend move from his old apartment and his landlord had a garage door opener that rode on the rail instead of the typical one that hangs from the ceiling. Now I bought an older house that needs one and there isnt any clearance on the ceiling to hang a typical one. If I would of known then I would of wrote down the manufacturer's name. Does anyone have an idea of the type I need or one I can use. There is about three inches above the garage door when it is up, so any suggestions would help. I figured the electrical forum would have an idea on what to install. Thanks, Jim

An Electric door opener is available for most newer type doors. For your particular situation you need to talk with a local Garage Door Company that can advise you on what options are possible.
