Car hoists and lifts

This section includes equipment designed either to lift a person or a wheelchair/scooter into a vehicle. Some may lift into the front or back seat of a car, some into the rear, and some store unoccupied wheelchairs/scooters on the car roof.

Car fixed hoists move a person from a wheelchair/scooter to a car seat, and vice versa. They are either fixed to the floor or other suitable anchorage point of the car. They consist of a boom which extends over the person to be lifted, a spreader bar and slings. Once the slings have been positioned around the person they are hooked onto the spreader bar. The boom is then raised either electrically or by hydraulic pump. This lifts the person clear of the wheelchair so they can be manoeuvred into the car and positioned into the seat. Small mobile hoists may be used for car transfers if they can be dismantled and stowed in the car boot.

Hoists and lifts to move occupied wheelchairs/scooters enable a passenger to be transferred directly from an attendant or user propelled wheelchair frame on a swivel base into the front seat or back seat of a car. Some lifts are fixed to the vehicle and are designed to be stored in or underneath it when not being used.

Hoists and lifts to move unoccupied wheelchairs/scooters to lift an empty wheelchair or scooter into the rear of a car, or onto the car roof.
