UVL Series Wheelchair & Scooter Lift

The UVL, or Under Vehicle Wheelchair Lift®, offers an innovative solution to your personal mobility challenges. With the wheelchair lift mounted underneath the vehicle, it remains out of sight and out of your way until needed. This means easy access, a clear side view, and maximum interior space—something your friends and family will appreciate on every trip.

The BraunAbility UVL Series wheelchair lift is electrically operated for both the in/out cycle and the outboard roll stop. The up/down cycle is hydraulic in operation. All functions are controlled by the standard hand-held control or the optional remote control.

The UVL Series Wheelchair Lift is designed for installation at the side door of a full-sized van. Installation of this wheelchair lift requires modification to the van's drive shaft. Consult your local BraunAbility dealer for details.

The downloadable eBrochure, specifications, and features are listed below. If you have any questions or if you're ready for a free, no-obligation mobility consultation with your local BraunAbility dealer, click the red button below.

Under Vehicle Wheelchair Lift


Lifting Capacity: 750 lbs.
Weight: 365 lbs.
Platform width:31"
Platform Length: 48" and 53"

The UVL Series is VA accepted and fully NHTSA compliant.

Wheelchair Lift Platform


The UVL Series offers two platforms with 31" of usable width, and 48" or 53" of usable length.

Outboard Roll Stop

For your safety, the electric roll stop raises to the vertical position before the mobility lift platform leaves the ground. Special sensors prevent the platform from raising if the roll stop is not fully engaged.

Inboard Roll Stop

The automatic inboard roll stop serves as a bridge from the platform to the vehicle floor. As a safety feature, platform operation is prevented if the inboard roll stop is occupied.

Wheelchair Lift Hand-held Remote Control

Hand-Held Control

The standard hand-held contol controls all van lift functions. For greater convenience, an optional remote control system is available.

Wheelchair Lift Hydraulic Power Pack

Hydraulic Power Pack

The hydraulic power pack for these mobility lifts is mounted inside the vehicle, out of the elements. In the event of vehicle electrical failure, the UVL can be operated with the manual backup pump.

Wheelchair Lift Threshold Sensor Mat

Threshold Sensor Mat

If the threshold sensor mat is occupied when the mobility lift is below vehicle floor level, lift operation will be prevented, and visual/audible warnings will alert passengers and attendants to unsafe conditions.

Wheelchair Lift Storage Compartment

Storage Compartment

The aluminum under-vehicle storage compartment is weather-resistant to protect these mobility lifts from the elements. Installation of the UVL requires modification to the van's drive shaft—consult your BraunAbility Dealer for details.

Wheelchair Lift Lifting Arms

Lifting Arms

The dual lifting arms are activated hydraulically, providing a stable and strong lifting environment.

Optional Door Operators

The optional automatic door operators give you complete control of your mobility. The doors can be opened and closed with all standard and optional van lift controls.
