Hi I am in the process of designing a portable wheelchair access lift and would appreciate any input from wheelchair users. I am hoping to provide a low cost portable lift to help access over a couple of steps that can be installed within 1 hour without the removal of the existing steps and operate from a battery making it a stand alone item. It sounds like a simple solution, however its been more difficult than you would think. Having looked at whats currently available on the market they all seem to very expensive or intrusive solutions which I believe should not be the case in 2019. As I am not a wheelchair user I don't want to make any assumptions, I am aware that everyone will have different levels of mobility and my lift will not provide a solution for everyone.
