1. Commercial use
The electric wheelchairs lifts are intended to be operated by an attendant (e.g. family member, assistant coach driver, etc) and have for safety reasons only a hand held remote control for manoeuvering in order to eliminate the risks of unintended lift manoeuvering by the wheelchair user. Furthermore the electric wheelchair lifts demand an increased focus by the attendant on safety features such as inboard and outboard barriers, lift hatches and handrails by its attention seeking yellow highlighting.
Completely quiet premium wheelchair lifts. One thing you’ll notice about a Q-Series lift is that it’s not only pleasant to look at, it‘s filled with clever solutions for what used to be major or minor annoyances of yesteryear’s lifts.

In the event of an emergency, another type of lift could be a potential obstruction to the only exit.

The main difference between these two groups is that the personal use lifts are intended to be used by the wheelchair user himself.
