Stairs, decks, porches and elevated platforms pose a barrier to the elderly and people in wheelchairs. Ramps and stair lifts may not be suitable for all applications. Vertical platform lifts (VPL) allow wheelchairs users to move from level to another without leaving their assistive device. Established dealers in accessibility equipment offer vertical platform lifts in New York from leading manufacturers. Savaria’s M2Lift VPL is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
