Lexia.Solutions has released two versions of its new UpLift product, a lift designed to help wheelchair users access facilities and then, once inside, be raised to better engage with live events, classrooms, restaurants, and other venues.
The two products are:
UpLift Seating. This is a relocatable platform that lets wheelchair users control an LCD touchpad to raise and lower themselves while in a facility so that they have increased visibility and more optimal seating options. Venues can easily store their folded UpLift when not in use, and a single staff person can quickly deploy it when needed. View an UpLift Seating demo video here.
UpLift Entryway. Like UpLift Seating, this relocatable platform lets wheelchairs users lift themselves unassisted into and out of establishments. This is also designed for one staff person or caretaker to position, operate, clean, and maintain. UpLift Entryway can be quickly stored and set up anywhere in a business or home setting.

Because the UpLift devices can be folded up and moved around, they help facilities comply with ADA without paying for permanent construction projects or ramp installations.
“People who use wheelchairs are very often limited by entryways, seat location, visible line of sight, and the number of people who can accompany them,” said Jeff Runnels, founder and creator of UpLift by Lexia.Solutions. “With UpLift, venues and facilities of all types can help attract this underserved market and grow their businesses’ bottom line.”
