Pride Mobility Backpacker Plus Lift Review
People that have disabilities or older have plenty of options to help them get around such as mobility scooters, power chairs, and other vehicles. The main problem with these devices is that they are very cumbersome for them to move around when they want to go to a new location. To make it easier for them you can have a lift system installed in your vehicle. There are many of these products on the market and I have reviewed many of them for you such as the Pride Mobility Backpacker Plus Lift which I look at in this review.
Why a Mobility Lift?
Scooters and power chairs are great devices for people with disabilities. A good mobility lift allows you to take your mobility device into a car and out of a car, so you can take your scooter or power chair with you wherever you go. These lips are very easy to use and install in a vehicle that will support the lift. If you want more mobility in your life and want to take that mobility with you, you need a good lift system.
This lift will automatically lift your mobility device into the cargo area of your SUV or similar vehicle. it will attach to third-row seats and there's no drilling involved. It can easily be taken in and out of your vehicle with ease. It will accommodate most power chairs in most scooters. To ensure that there's a proper fit, check the manufacturer's recommendations before you buy this lift system to see if it will work with your scooter or power chair. The maximum weight for this lift system is 350 lb. It comes with all the literature you need to set up the system including training videos. If you like, the system can be bolted to the floor for a permanent installation.
This lift system will mount to the existing floor latches when you take out the rear seat. There's a battery pack so you don't have to wire this system into your car battery. The lift system works with a single button and you don't have to do any work whatsoever. All you do is drive the vehicle onto the lift and the lift will do all of the work for you. It will put the mobility device into your vehicle and then out again once you reach your destination. This lift will fit most minivan type vehicles as well as SUVs. For some vehicles, there's a modification kit that you can get so it fits with your individual vehicle.
You should buy a lift system because it gives you a lot of options with your mobility device. You can take your scooter or power chair with you wherever you go. If you do a lot of traveling or are an active individual, you need a proper lift system in your vehicle for your mobility device.
A good life such as the Pride Mobility Backpacker Plus Lift makes perfect sense. This device will allow you to take your mobility scooter or power chair with you wherever you go, and it will take the device in and out of your vehicle with ease.
