Person hoists are very similar to the hoists that are used in the home such as bath hoists and bed hoists. They lift the person into the front of a comfortable car seat.
The person sits in a sling (small, medium or large) and an electric motor will raise them out of the wheelchair. With the help of an assistant their legs are swung into the vehicle and they are gently lowered into the passenger seat.
The lift is powered directly from the vehicle’s 12 volt battery, and can be fitted on either the driver or passenger side of the vehicle. The Milford lift can be fitted to all 2 and 3 door vehicles, and most 4 or 5 door vehicles including estates, people carriers and 4×4’s.
