In our last blog post we discussed how a mobility scooter can help those with decreased strength, endurance, or a loss of balance become more self-reliant and live a more independent life. In this blog we will discuss how you can take the freedom and independence that a mobility scooter allows one step further, with the installation of a vehicle lift.
A vehicle lift enables you to easily stow and transport your wheelchair or scooter inside or outside of your vehicle, all with the push of a button. The easy-to-use ride on platform design allows you to simply roll up to your vehicle lift, get off your wheelchair or scooter, push a button to engage the lift and watch it quickly and easily lift your wheelchair or scooter into the vehicle. You can then get into your vehicle and drive to your destination.
Upon arrival at your destination, simply exit your vehicle, push the button on your vehicle’s lift to lower your wheelchair or scooter to ground level and drive it off of the lift. This ease of use is a major factor in improving one’s sense of self-reliance and independence as you no longer have to rely on others to help you load or unload your wheelchair or mobility device; instead, you can do it all with the push of a button!
A vehicle lift can drastically improve your quality of life if you:
- Own a vehicle and a wheelchair or mobility scooter, and use both to get around safely
- Need to take your wheelchair or mobility scooter with you
- Use a manual wheelchair and have difficulty loading and unloading it into your vehicle
- Frequently transport a loved one that uses a wheelchair or scooter for mobility
