Over 350,000 people in the UK rely on mobility scooters and powerchairs every day.

These devices should be a fast-track to freedom, independence and the vital journeys of daily life.

Yet this is not always the case, with several challenges hindering their usage. Firstly, as scooters/powerchairs operate on rechargeable batteries, travelling distance is limited.

Users going further afield may have to disassemble the device, load it into the back of their vehicle, drive to the destination and then unload it.

Some scooters and powerchairs can’t be disassembled, meanwhile. In this case, a vehicle able to accommodate their height and a ramp or hoist to access the vehicle are needed.

Usually, the back seats are folded down and all boot space is taken up. The weight of scooters and powerchairs is also problematic

Getting the device in and out of vehicles often requires two people and a significant amount of physical effort.

Enter TriLift UK – which gives scooter and powerchair users the freedom to easily transport their own device wherever they go.

The scooter/powerchair is simply driven to the rear of the vehicle and coupled to a bracket which is permanently fixed to the device.

At the flick of a switch, the device is then raised off the ground and locked securely in place on the rear of the vehicle.

TriLift’s small size and low weight make it compatible with most vehicles currently available in the UK, without affecting the safe or legal operation of the vehicle.

It can also be transferred should the user change their vehicle; and can be used with any size of scooter or powerchair.

If the TriLift will not be used for a prolonged period, it can also be easily removed from the vehicle for storage.

“This is a revolution for the mobility transport industry and is so simple to use,” says Ray Lartey, managing director of TriLift UK, who has been in the mobility industry for more than 20 years.

He first saw TriLift in the US several years ago and was instantly inspired to bring it to the UK.

TriLift UK is the Sole Distributor of this worldwide patent product in the UK and Europe.

It has Mobility outlets and technicians located across the country. Interested parties can also book a free no obligation demonstration at home.
