Elevators installed with more than 4 inches of “gap space” between the hoistway doors and the elevator car doors can pose a serious safety risk. Children may become entrapped in the space and could be seriously injured or killed. This risk can be reduced with the proper installation of space guards at each floor.

3 Wonders of Wheelchair Lifts

3 Wonders of Wheelchair Lifts Preferred Elevator

Wheelchair lifts eliminate the need to lift a wheelchair to transport it from one level to the next

Wheelchair lifts eliminate the need to lift a wheelchair to transport it from one level to the next. They are incredibly convenient and groundbreaking. All a wheelchair-enabled person has to do is get onto the vertical lift, close the door, and enable the lift to take them to the next floor. Upon reaching the designated level, all the wheelchair-enabled user has to do is exit the platform of the lift. If you’re someone living with a disability, this home modification might give you more confidence and independence. Let’s dive into three of the many wonders of wheelchair lifts! 

Homeowners Can Finance Wheelchair Lifts

When upgrading your home to any extent, it makes sense to have a budget. Naturally, most homeowners will ask immediately, “Can I afford a wheelchair lift?” Bruno works with TimePayment, which offers customers financing. As with a stairlift, you can finance a wheelchair lift. The credit decisions are quick, and the monthly payments are affordable with hassle-free online payments. Bruno offers wheelchair lifts that vary significantly in price based on how far the lift needs to rise, the features you select, and the site modifications that need to happen to accommodate your wheelchair lift. Prepare yourself to spend at least $6,000. 

In addition, Medicaid helps cover wheelchair lifts in Maryland and many other states. The Medicaid Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) have waivers that allow individuals to age in place and help pay for home modifications. While there can be a waiting list, the wait might be worth it if you’re on a limited budget or income. If Medicaid doesn’t cover your wheelchair lift, state grants, charitable funds, and community organizations are resources you can use to help pay for a wheelchair lift.

Automatic Wheelchair Lifts Exist

An automatic wheelchair lift takes care of the folding, unfolding, lowering, and raising when you press a button. Electric wheelchair lifts are easy to upkeep and come with a backup battery if there is a power outage, along with plenty of other safety features that our team would be happy to discuss with you. 

Wheelchair Lifts Have Outdoor Applications 

You deserve to get a breath of fresh air whenever your heart desires. It’s not cumbersome whatsoever for a wheelchair lift to be indoor or outdoor or both. They don’t take up an abundant amount of space and are very quiet and comfortable to ride. If you have any questions, concerns, or need a quote, give us a call today.
