Entry Description

The Q-Series Wheelchair lift is designed to provide reliable mobility access for wheelchair users worldwide. It is 10% lighter than previous models, yet the lift supports high loads with a 300% stiffer structure. It has the only deep drawn vertical arm on the market for improved structure and aesthetics. Additionally, it is quieter than any lift on the market. It has improved visibility and safety with a simple and intuitive control, and LED lighting incorporated inside and outside the platform’s edge.
