Mobility Equipment

Loader and Lift Devices

One of the most common challenges faced by wheelchair users is getting the chair in after you. The same goes for scooters. If you’ve considered an alternative to your current method, call Bettenhausen today about wheelchair loader and scooter lifts. We’ll offer you options, the latest information on technology, and one-stop shopping for sales, installation, and service after the sale.

Loaders come in many varieties with the most common being ones that have straps which attach to the scooter or wheelchair allowing it to be lifted into the vehicle. There are also platform style loaders that either attach to the rear hitch of a vehicle or mount on the floor in the rear of the vehicle, which allow the mobility device to be transported safely out of the weather. There are also loaders for the side doors of minivans, loaders that store a manual chair in a rooftop carrier, and loaders that store the device in the bed or cab of a pickup truck. Contact us for further details.
