Platform lifts are an increasingly popular option for many different audiences – and even more so when it comes to disabled access. Lifts are the perfect option within commercial and domestic environments as they are not only hugely flexible but create that much-needed independence for individuals who use wheelchairs or who need assistance with mobility.
Having a disability shouldn’t mean you can’t live the same life as anyone else. However, as a wheelchair user or someone with restricted mobility, it isn’t always be easy getting around, especially if the tools and equipment necessary for you to do so aren’t available. Whether a business owner, a family member of someone with a disability or someone looking for ease of access themselves, investing in a disabled access lift can make life much easier.
Different situations and requirements call for different types of disabled access lifts, so which one is right for you?
