Wheelchair Platform Lifts are another amazing solution we carry to grant access wherever there are multi-levels. Sometimes referred to as Wheelchair elevators, these vertical platform lifts have a small footprint. The person in a wheelchair or power scooter simply drives onto the platform and is lifted from one level to the next without ever having to transfer out of their mobility device. Models are available for either indoor or outdoor use. They are a perfect solution for upper level apartments, raised entries, second floor or multi-level homes and wherever there are stairs or steps. They offer a great option for churches, schools, offices, and businesses to give access to those who cannot navigate stairs.
Most models require little change to your existing structure since they are practically self- standing. We have both open and enclosed platforms available. Most people can independently operate the easy to use controls. For specific manual disabilities, the controls can be customized. Our Chattanooga experts can help you find the perfect Wheelchair lift for your specific needs. They can be locked so they can only be used by certain people. There are built in safety features.
Installing a Wheelchair Elevator helps to open up your church, business, school, apartment or medical facility to the 7 million people in the US who use a mobility device to get around. They may use a wheelchair, scooter, walker, crutch or cane due to a genetic disorder, traumatic injury, progressive disease, stroke, war wound or simply aging. The use of a Wheelchair Platform Lift, or sometimes called porch lift, gives much welcomed access.
