Vertical Platform Lift
When you talk about vertical platform lifts, often people envision an elevator. And while there are many similarities between a vertical platform lift and elevators, there are some distinct differences between the two. The primary difference is that a platform lift doesn’t require the same type of infrastructure an elevator needs. It doesn’t need a piston underneath it nor does it require cable hoists above it. Essentially a vertical platform lift is an enclosed system.
Vertical platforms are very stable and secure, which makes them popular with people using a wheelchair. Additionally, platform lifts either have or can be equipped with a canopy. And you don’t need to leave your wheelchair to operate the platform lift. This truly makes it independent and you don’t need another person to assist you with the operation.
Platform lifts can also be installed on vehicles, called vehicle wheelchair lifts, to easily transport wheelchair-bound passengers.
