Wheelchair Lifts in Kansas City, Missouri
More economical than elevators, but far superior to ramps, are wheelchair platform lifts - mechanical devices to move both wheelchair and occupant easily from one level to another. Often such a lift can be installed without the presence of a dedicated hoistway, which is required for a full-blown elevator. Additionally, mechanical wheelchair lifts are far more space-conscious than basic devices such as ramps.
Platform type lifts can be installed indoors or outdoors, vertically or inclined over existing stairs - there are even portable models available for temporary venues such as concert stages.

Savaria inclined wheelchair platform lifts
Between the stairlift and the elevator in terms of functionality is the inclined platform lift, a device which performs the feat of transporting wheelchair and occupant up and down stairs. Inclined wheelchair lifts have the singular advantage of requiring no separate hoistway, or even extra exterior space, apart from the existing stairwell.
