USM carries a wide range of vertical platform lifts for home and commercial use. In general, a vertical platform lift is used to overcome differences in height which prohibit the use of a wheelchair or scooter. This difference can be as little as two feet to as much as twelve feet, inside or outside the home. While a ramp could be used in many of these cases, it would require a long ramp that would require large amounts of time and money to build. And, unlike a stair lift, a vertical platform lift can be used by wheelchair and scooter users, transporting both them and their mobility device at the same time.
