Can a Wheelchair Lift Work in an Older Home?
Getting around in a wheelchair can be a challenge if a ramp or elevator is not available. For a person who needs to use a wheelchair at home, a wheelchair lift is the ideal solution if there is not enough from for an elevator inside the house or if a ramp cannot be built outdoors. Wheelchair lifts can be customized to fit nearly any home, whether new or old.
Our Apex Green wheelchair lift can be used either indoors or outdoors. This wheelchair lift uses a screw-drive system and is an efficient and economical solution to improve mobility at home. It has a 34 inch x 54 inch anti-skid platform, does not require a pit, and can travel up to six feet. The Apex Green has side guards and safety features and a 16-inch ramp to help with getting on and off.
