Wheelchair access for narrowboat
A hydraulic lift was not wanted as any leak would be a major problem on a boat so an air bag solution was developed. A bellows with a 26in lift was found and a tray supported on two vertical rods was manufactured by the client’s husband. A foot guard raised with the lift to prevent the wheelchair moving forward.
The client can now get on and off the boat easily and in an emergency can get off the boat by herself.
