Vertical Platform Lift - Vertical Platform Lifts
The beauty of a wheelchair is that it gives an instant feel of freedom and mobility to the user but there are still obstacles that a wheelchair by itself cannot get the user through such as getting into the front porch or the back deck of a house and this is where a very specialized mechanical device called the vertical platform lift comes into play. Vertical platform lifts are very sophisticated devices that can range in price from a few thousand dollars to up to $10,000. While the stair lift is made to lift the user from one floor of the house to the other the vertical platform lift is usually made to get the person through areas that require a lift from 6 inches to a couple of feet. Vertical platform lifts not only help the wheelchair-bound user but they also help the person that is trying to lift the wheelchair to get the user on the front porch. Imagine if the wheelchair-bound user weighed 250 pounds and the wheelchair itself weighed another 250 pounds, that is over 500 pounds of weight that you would need to lift up to get this person into the front porch or backyard deck. That money is definitely worth it not only to the person in a wheelchair but to the person lifting him up as it will save on future back injuries.
