Wheelchair Lift – Chair Topper

Convenience and style are two qualities that are blended seamlessly into the innovative design of the Chair Topper, a custom wheelchair lift.

Developed to assist wheelchair users who are able to transfer, this exterior wheelchair lift automatically folds and stores a conventional folding wheelchair inside a stylish, weather-resistant car-top compartment. The need to store your wheelchair in the trunk or backseat is eliminated, allowing family and friends to enjoy the comfort of your vehicle.

The Chair Topper's universal mounting systems ensure this wheelchair lift will fit most automobiles and light trucks; see your BraunAbility dealer for details. It adds only 21 1/2" in height, and the sleek plastic shell gives a finished, automotive look. A convenient hand-held control operates the folding, lifting and storing of your wheelchair. It takes only 30 seconds to complete the cycle, and the smooth operation ensures that your chair is carefully handled and transported without damage or undo wear and tear.

This wheelchair car lift is available in driver- or passenger-side configurations. Due to its horizontal operation, the Chair Topper may be operated in home or public parking garages, with a minimum amount of space required beside the vehicle - a great feature for tight parking situations.
