The Right Wheelchair Van Lifts For You

Deciding between wheelchair van lifts is an involved process. When making your decision on which wheelchair van lifts to choose, you should pay attention to several things.

  • First and foremost, make sure any wheelchair van lifts you're considering are safe. You can check with your medical equipment vendor to determine whether the product meets voluntary codes established by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
  • You should also look at the functionality of any wheelchair van lifts you're considering. Decide whether the type of lift you're interested in works with the vehicle you have and the wheelchair you're using. Think about where you'll be using the van and how you'll get in and out of the vehicle.
  • Consider your ability to use the van lift. Will you have help or will you need to use the van lift yourself?
  • Cost is always an issue. Are you looking for a more affordable wheelchair van lift or do you have the means to get top-notch equipment?
