When you’re away from home, getting around can be problematic. Taking your scooter, power chair or wheelchair with you helps to maintain your independence and freedom, but without an easy and safe method of getting it in and out of your vehicle, the task becomes difficult and tedious at best!
Add a lift, installed in your automobile, and it all becomes much easier. A good vehicle lift will safely and easily lift your scooter, power chair or manual wheelchair into and out of your vehicle, without risk of damage to the vehicle or injury to you.
Scooter, powerchair and wheelchair lifts all share the same basic designs and installation configurations, with each type being adapted to the type of chair that you own.
The crane design resembles a crane and picks up your mobility vehicle with a hook and line.
The external platform style vehicle lift uses an external platform upon which you drive the mobility vehicle, get off, and then raise it to a transport position.
The newest variety of lift, called a Hybrid Inside/Outside lift, puts a platform out on the ground and then lifts and stows the mobility vehicle inside. We will show you how to operate your lift safely and easily. We can recommend the best type of lift to fit your specific situation.
These lifts include the Joey™ Vehicle lift from Bruno, shown above. This simple to use product lifts and stores your unoccupied scooter or powerchair inside your minivan at the touch of a button. Simply roll your mobility device on the platform from either side, hit a button, and let the Joey lift and store your mobility device for you. Securement belts are included for safety during transport.
In our discussion on which lift is best for you, we take into account:
- Which mobility vehicle you own
- What make and model of van / automobile you own
- Your ability to stand, balance and walk
