    1. Don Worley

      I thoroughly endorse the information about the Smart Lifter on this website. It is an excellent product in every respect. With high level complete paraplegia from a spinal injury, my wife was wheelchair bound for 47 years. Following rehabilitation, she was virtually independent for 30 years, able to drive her car with hand controls, transferring herself to and from the driver’s seat, initially folding and pulling her chair in behind the passenger seat, later using a hoist to carry it on the car roof. A major health crisis, however, deprived her of her independence for the remaining 16 years of her life, unable to drive but initially able to transfer herself into the passenger seat; later, however, having to use a sliding board with assistance until that proved impossible. We had a Smart Lifter installed to enable the transfers (and not have to rely on Access Cabs). Marvellous! But unfortunately she died suddenly before being able to enjoy it. Don’t put it off; get a Smart Lifter now!
