 Mobility problems can affect individuals differently. Climbing stairs can be a problem for the physically disabled, as well as for the aged people. In today's technologically advanced world, passenger lifts are provided in all types of buildings to help users easily access floors. However, it is only after the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) was passed, that effective lift solutions for the disabled were introduced. To help disabled people enjoy life in all its essence by reducing their accessibility problems, a variety of lift solutions are available now in the form of platform lifts, stair lifts and wheelchair lifts which can be used both indoors and outdoors.

Platform lifts are effective lift solutions for the disabled, as these suit their needs and are affordable. Modern platform lifts are designed in a manner suitable for any type of architectural and structural form of the building without compromising its aesthetic quality and style. Wheelchair platform lifts are effective lift solutions for the disabled both at home and in public buildings such as offices, schools, and hotels. Portable wheel chair lifts can be used in places where ramps are unavailable.

Stair lifts occupy only a limited space and can be fixed on the side of the staircase. Stair lifts are available for straight, curved as well as spiral staircases, and are also less expensive. These are pragmatic and cost-effective solutions which help individuals with mobility and accessibility problems lead an active life.

In order to help disabled persons get in and out of vehicles, vehicle lifts can be used. Vehicle lifts are a competent lift solution to the disabled by virtue of their outstanding design appropriate for use in all types of vehicles such as cars or SUVs. The swing type vehicle lift is designed for effective use in vans.

An accessibility solution for the disabled no longer remains just a dream. Today there are a number of reliable products available to reduce your mobility challenges. Take care to select the best and quality product that matches your requirements and budget.
