Capable of lifting up to 330 pounds, the Milford Person Lift is designed to smoothly transfer users from a wheelchair directly to a standard car seat. The Milford is a strong yet lightweight powered mechanical device that uses a sling and remote control to lift the person from their wheelchair and then gently lower them into the vehicle. After being transferred, the lift is easily detached and then stowed in the rear baggage area or trunk.
What Are the Benefits of the Milford Person Lift?
The Milford is able to be fitted into a wide range of vehicle types, which means families can keep using their current automobile and can avoid buying an expensive new vehicle. Even if your family does end up buying a new vehicle in the future, the Milford is easily transferrable from one vehicle to the next.
The Milford Person Lift is being utilized worldwide in minivans, SUVs, full-size vans, crossovers, and sedans.
