Scooter and Power Wheelchair Lifts for Vans or SUVs Come in Many Different Styles. Careful Consideration Needs to Be Taken When Selecting a Model for Your Particular Type of Scooter and Vehicle.

When it comes to scooter lifts, there’s no one size fits all solution.

Automatic wheelchair locking devices are products designed to secure an occupied wheelchair during transport.
