The freedom that travel brings is one of life’s simple pleasures so finding ways to ensure those with limited mobility reap the benefits is of paramount importance to one vehicle access company.

Vapor Ricon, already renowned for its vehicle lifts which are just as likely to be seen in a domestic vehicles as a public service ones, has an extensive range of products incorporating ramps and most recently, the H-Series range of hoists all of which support vehicular travel.

“Our new range of hoists is a natural addition to our existing product range and is proving to be hugely popular in providing valuable assistance when moving heavy and cumbersome mobility products such as wheelchairs and scooters,” said Michael Dickinson sales manager Vapor Ricon Europe. “By including hoists within our portfolio of products we are continuing our pledge to support both wheelchair users and their carers in their bid to make journeys simple and enjoyable.”

The H-Series range of hoists joins Vapor Ricon favourites such as the S-Series range of lifts, the K-Series range of domestic lifts as well as complementary products such as wheelchair restraints, winches, floor adaptations and vehicular ramps

“Our aim at Vapor Ricon is to try and minimise the stress and worry that travel can bring by developing reliable, easy to use products that really do make life more simple for everyone who uses them,” said Michael. “It’s important to us that we play our part in making the world not only more accessible, but accessible with comfort and simplicity so that everything from daily tasks to foreign holidays have the potential to be safe and made with ease.”

Michael concluded,” There are over 1.2 million wheelchair users in the UK and accessing and using vehicles needs to be a priority to ensure the wellbeing and satisfaction of everyone. Our compatible, interactive range allows our personal customers the freedom to travel for work or pleasure opening up the possibilities of fulfilling everyday tasks with confidence and enjoyment.”
