Power wheelchairs may be used primarily for indoor mobility; to aid instrumental activities of daily living. However, power chair users might also perform essential activities outside their home. Maybe they spend time volunteering, or do their own shopping, or need to keep doctors' appointments way across town.
For transporting a power chair to some of the places you (or, a loved one) absolutely must go, an exterior vehicle lift, like the HOVERLIFT® for Vehicles, may be one of the most convenient solutions available.
