The Handicaps, Inc. Superarm is the most unique lift system available on the market today.

One of the biggest problems with van lifts is that they are always in the way, blocking the windows and other people from getting in and out. With the Superarm Lift 2000, no doorways are blocked, no platform, no hydraulics, it is all electric. Designed by the disabled, quick, simple, safe, reliable, and dependable in all types of weather. It is compact in size. Less parking space is needed because you don’t require space to first fold out a platform and then have room to wheel off the end. It sets you down right beside the van.

The Superarm Lift is also the quietest lift made. The installation of this lift is easy and fast, a qualified installer can install it in approximately three to four hours. The lift is powered by the van’s electrical system so no extra battery is needed. It has a low amp ½ hp motor that drives the gear, which operates the arm. Each lift comes with 1-inch wide mountain climber type webbing straps. The straps are inconspicuous and comfortable. This webbing material has been tested at over 1000 lbs. The webbing will allow your chair to tip slightly back, giving head clearance as you pass through the door. You are fully secured while loading and unloading. (Lift capacity 600 lbs.) There are switches on the arm that travel with the person so that they can easily load and unload themselves, or can be operated by an attendant. There is an additional option of a hand/lap held switch available.

With the Superarm lift users can modify their vehicle to their needs rather than the requirements of their mobility equipment. Many users feel that the Superarm lift has completely revolutionized the way they approach mobility and their vehicle.
