Basic things to know about wheelchair lifts
A wheelchair lift may also be referred to as a vertical platform lift (VPL), an inclined platform lift (IPL) or an accessibility lift or handicap lift.
Types of Wheelchair Lifts
Vertical Wheelchair Lifts and Inclined Wheelchair Lifts illustrations by Silver CrossWheelchair lifts for buildings are offered in two basic types: vertical platforms and inclined platforms. Vertical platform lifts travel straight up and down. Inclined platform lifts travel on an angle that follows the path of the barrier (the stairs).
Most often, wheelchair lifts are permanently installed inside or outside a building or home to provide access, but there are also portable or mobile wheelchair lift models that can be moved to provide accessibility on a temporary basis wherever the lift is needed.
