Lift Gate For Wheelchair Drivers
Being confined to a wheelchair doesn't always have to mean dependence on somebody else for driving a vehicle.
Crow River Industries, Wayzata, Minn., has introduced the Vangater wheelchair lift that can be installed on vans, buses, motorhomes or even boats. It enables the wheelchairbound driver to get into his vehicle, drive to his destination, and get out again - without help from anybody else.
The lift can be mounted for a sliding or swing door of a van. After the driver is in place, the platform folds neatly out of the way.
Various options are available for the more severely handicapped, including hand controls, adjustable power seat, wheelchair tie downs, and dashboard controls.
Another popular feature is an outside automatic door opener housed inside a weatherproof enclosure. The wheelchair-bound driver just pushes a button on the outside to slide open the door, unfold the platform, and lower it into loading position.
The lift can be bought separate or installed. Cost of the semi-automatic model without installation is $1,695 installed $1,895. The fully automatic model is $2,155 without installation; $2,385 installed.
