  • Wheelchair Lifts

    I keep searching for wheelchair lifts for vans....more so vehicles. My son is a C5-6 and young and really doesn't want a van......Check out this lift that fits a van but is used in sedans also. Of course it is a German company but I have emailed them anyway. Why isn't there something like this in the USA? Hope the link works. Highlight it and paste it to the www.

    We need more info. Is this for you to use or something far your son to use after he transfers into the car.

    What kind of a wheelchair does he have? A folding chair or a lightweight rigid frame chair with pop-off wheels?

    Does your son drive or intend to drive?

        Can he independently transfer into a regular car? All those extra transfers over time are hard on your shoulders...just something to bear in mind.
