The strong silent type.
Almost all lifts on the market today follow a common industry standard set by BraunAbility close to 40 years ago. Over that time our lifts have earned the reputation of being reliable workhorses. However, inboard lifts also ride inside the cabin and honestly, sometimes they're not the best passengers. They can rattle. They can look ugly in nice vans. They can even shift and sway under load while in use.
Having a lift that goes up and down is one thing. We set out to reinvent the wheelchair lift to match the premium experience of modern vehicles. By combining our four decades of experience with human-centered design processes we now proudly present our new BraunAbility Q-Series inboard lifts. The reliability and robustness synonymous with BraunAbility together with a smart design that excels above all others in three dimensions: quiet while driving, structural rigidity and design aesthetics.
Enjoy the silence.
The Q-Series lifts are as quiet as they get. In a blind test you wouldn't even be able to hear the difference between an empty van and one with a Q-Series lift installed.
The rigidity of the platform is a major factor in the user experience. Nothing is as scary as riding on a floppy platform. These lifts are so rigid, we dare say they're the only lifts that are designed for having an attendant riding in the outer corner of the platform together with the wheelchair user. In plain numbers that's about 300 percent more rigid than any lift we’ve seen.
Not just a pretty face.
