A wheelchair lift or patient lift is helpful in assisting a mobility device and/or patient up a step or obstacle. Lifts can also be used to assist in transporting your wheelchair or mobility scooter by lifting your device into your vehicle. Depending on your needs Suncoast Mobility has a few options to consider.
Exterior Automatic Electric Lifts
Our automatic electric lifts are great for transporting your mobility device outside of your vehicle. If you have a mobility scooter or wheelchair that is too large to fit in your trunk or cargo space this is the perfect option for you. By switching a level your lift can fold up like a tailgate or down to load your wheelchair or scooter. You simply lower the lift and drive your scooter on and off either side of the platform. Installation is also very easy and can be done in a few short hours at home. We have two great options available; EZ Carrier EZCLA: Auto Fold Up Electric Lift and EZ Carrier EZCL: Auto Fold Up Electric Lift.
