Why choose a hoist?
Wheelchairs and scooters allow people with limited mobility the chance to move in and around the home however traveling further afield is not always possible without use of a car.
Installing a hoist into your vehicle capable of lifting a wheelchair, powerchair or mobility scooter effortlessly in and out of your vehicle, provides the freedom and independence to travel, work, shop and explore beyond your home.
Why choose the Smart Lifter LM?
Designed to lift small sized scooters and wheelchairs weighing less than 80kg, the Autochair LM allows you to enjoy increased mobility thanks to its user-friendly operation and clever design.
Straight forward to fit and suitable for installation into wide range of vehicles including Hatchback’s, Estates, Vans, 4×4’s & SUV’s.
It’s straightforward to operate with your choice of the following configurations: 4-way electric up, down, left and right or 2-way electric up & down (with left and right done manually by the operator).
Which ever configuration you choose, maneuvering your wheelchair or mini scooter in and out of your vehicle is effortless – no manual lifting required!
When the hoist is not in use, it can be detached allowing for plenty of space to remain inside your boot.
