Outdoor Wheelchair Lifts for Your Home

Vertical Platform Lifts, or VPLs, are very useful for helping a wheelchair user travel between levels. EHLS’ outdoor wheelchair lifts are built to operate in the changing weather climate of Chicagoland. Vertical Platform Lifts are often used to get in and out of the house, but can also be used indoors and in public buildings to travel between floors.

Outdoor platform wheelchair lifts for those with disabilities or limited mobility are commonly referred to as porch lifts, as they provide access to the back and/or front yards of homes through the Chicagoland Area. A porch lift will allow family members that are powerchair or wheelchair users to get in and out of the house safely and independently!
