Swing Arm Style
The swing-arm style scooter lift uses a mechanical arm secured to the vehicle. A webbing strap attaches to the scooter or wheelchair via a docking device provided by the lift manufacturer. The lift will raise and lower the unoccupied scooter or wheelchair effortlessly using an electric motor powered by the vehicles battery.
The swinging motion may be either manual or power-assisted. You just push a button to lift the scooter or wheelchair and the arm moves it into the vehicle. Conversely, the lift will raise the scooter or wheelchair, swing it away from the vehicle and lower it to the ground for use again.
