Wheelchair lifts are devices help lift people in wheelchairs up and down wheelchair accessible vans and other accessible vehicles as well things like Steps and stairs. It is so beneficial to many people especially in the circumstances of getting up and out when they need to go somewhere.
It’s really great because with a wheelchair lift the individual just has to pull his wheelchair up to the platform of the lift and then simply be lifted up or down !!People with disabilities and those confined to a wheelchair cannot really find anything more convenient than this !! It’s such a Godsend to so many !!!
Another great benefit of wheelchair lifts is that there is one for about every purpose. Platform wheelchair lifts are very sturdy and very solid and do fold up. They come in both automatic and semi-automatic versions. In the auto wheelchair lift a switch actually takes care of the folding part as well as the lowering and raising. In a semi-automatic wheelchair lift one has to manually old and unfold the platform.
It’s a fact that electric wheelchair lifts are easier to maintain than hydraulic ones. Electric wheelchair lifts can be customed fitted with telephone jacks and auto door openers.
On a personal note, my Uncle was a quadriplegic for over 30 years before he passed away in 1995. I can remember when he had the wheelchair lift added to his van. It was such a great thing for him making it easier to get in and out and go to different places.
As time goes by the wheelchair lifts will get technically improved and much better !
