BraunAbility® Under Vehicle Lift®
Under Vehicle Wheelchair Lift: More Space, Improved Visibility
The BraunAbility Under Vehicle Lift (UVL®) is a wheelchair lift designed for installation on the side door of full-size vans. The BraunAbility UVL is mounted beneath the vehicle in a weathertight enclosure, remaining out of sight and out of the way for other passengers until needed again. This means easy access for everyone, including loading any and all cargo, a clear side view for the driver while traveling and maximum interior space for passengers.
- Van wheelchair lift does not block side door windows, allowing for full visibility. - UVL does not block the doorway, allowing other occupants to enter/exit easily.
- A longer platform accommodates larger wheelchairs while still using the original doorway height.
- Automatic roll stop engages before the platform leaves the ground for added safety. -
- Slip-resistant platform.
- Built-in diagnostic system for easy troubleshooting.
- The UVL Series is VA accepted and fully NHTSA compliant.

Key Features and Specifications of the BraunAbility UVL
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.
The standard hand-held control regulates all van wheelchair lift functions. For greater convenience, an optional remote control system is available.
Hydraulic Power System
The hydraulic power system for this wheelchair lift 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.
Threshold Warning Plate
A threshold warning plate is a sensor installed on the entrance to the lift. If this plate is engaged when the lift platform is below vehicle floor level, lift operation will be prevented, and visual/audible warnings will alert passengers and attendants to unsafe conditions. This is a best-practice feature that keeps the lift user safe during operation.
Optional Door Operators
The optional automatic door operators give you complete control of your mobility. The doors can be opened and closed by activating a key fob or small handheld remote.
