Wheelchair Lifts: A Practical Accessibility Solution for Your Home or Business

Whether you are a business striving to make your facility more accessible and comply with ADA requirements or a homeowner looking for a safe way to move between the levels of your residence, vertical wheelchair platform lifts are a convenient, easy-to-use and affordable solution.

Vertical platform lifts are powered devices used to lift a manual or power wheelchair or scooter to an upper deck or landing. Think of them as an open elevator designed to help users reach different levels inside their home or access an outdoor platform, such as a deck, without using a wheelchair ramp or staircase. Compared to wheelchair ramps, vertical platform lifts are more compact and take up less space. These lifts are also incredibly easy to operate, with the ability to transfer an individual at the press of a button.

MobilityWorks@home offers high-quality Bruno vertical platform lifts, which are among the best wheelchair lifts available on the market today.

Key features include:

  • Emergency stop switches
  • Non-skid platforms
  • Weather-protected controls and switches on outdoor models
  • Height access up to 14 feet
  • Supports up to 750 pounds


Lift installation typically takes anywhere from 1-3 days, depending how high the unit needs to travel. The lift itself is attached to a concrete pad with bolts and the upper landing gate is attached to two posts mounted on the top level.

Your platform lift will always be installed by factory certified MobilityWorks@home technicians, with a limited lifetime warranty on parts and a one-year warranty on labor so you can rest assured that your lift will be installed the right way.
