The BraunAbility Vangater Series lift for a wheelchair has a power tri-folding platform that allows for easy access into and out of a full-size wheelchair van for wheelchair access and ambulatory entry.
With the touch of the button, the machine unfolds the platform into a fully-functional wheelchair lift. Lift operation has three different control options – hand held control, on the lift control, and remote control. The tri-fold feature on the van lift allows for maximum room inside the vehicle.
To ensure the well-being of the wheelchair lift user, the Vangater wheelchair lift incorporates a number of safety features including an electric roll stop and a threshold sensor mat. It is designed for installation in the side doors of domestic full-size wheelchair vans to transform a standard full-size wheelchair van into a wheelchair accessible van. BraunAbility also makes a model that is available for installation in wheelchair accessible minivans (please consult your local Ride-Away Mobility Consultant for more details).
