We have IKEA's Ekorre swing, and both our dds love it (only one has SPD, lol)
It was very affordable (30$, maybe, I don't recall exactly). My dw installed it using the hardware that IKEA provides, and I believe it was a bit of a process finding the ceiling studs to install it into.
But it is a great thing to have...we often suggest to dd that she needs a few minutes in the swing & she loves it.
Laurata - I was the case supervisor for a home program of an 11-year old boy, a tall, strong one, and he had a similar hook in the ceiling of his bedroom. His mom bought this really thick, stretchy fabric, and simply tied it in a big knot through the eye hook to make a swing that's like a sling for him. He loves it and it holds his weight very well.
He uses it as a cocoon but also as a regular swing, and although over time the fabric stretches out, once she washes it in the machine, it gets tighter again. She got it at a regular fabric store like Fabic Depot. It's all synthetic.
