Butler Mobility Inclined Platform Wheelchair Lifts (IPL) from IMED Mobility are a great mobility product for homes with stairs that require multi-level wheelchair access.

As well as ADA-compliance, these platform wheelchair lifts meet or exceed all National Safety Code (ANSI/ASME code) requirements. Butler home access products are VA approved and have UL® and CSA certified components.

The standard lifting capacity is 500 lbs (227 kg), and there is an optional lifting capacity of 750 lbs (350 kg).

The standard battery backup will bring the platform up and down as many as 12 - 15 times, in the event of a failure. Of course, this depends on multiple factors like the age of the battery, the height and the load, so the user is never left stranded.
