Electric Tip-Up Plate
The Electric Tip-Up Plate is suitable for persons that need assistance in getting from a seated position to standing or as a sidewise transfer between a wheelchair and car seat where there is a difference in height.
The Tip Up Plate can be installed in vehicles with three and five doors on either right or left front seat, it does not alter the original making of the car and it does not require the replacement of the seat or of the seat belt.
It’s recommended in case of vehicles such as MPVs or off-road vehicles, with really high seats: the user transfers from the wheelchair to the tip-up plate and the plate rises up to the seat level, by means of an electric motor. The user controls the up and down movement by means of a push-button handset or a switch, arranged in a convenient position.
When travelling, the plate has to be removed in order to avoid obstructions for other car users. The electrical tip-up plate is provided with a safety system which automatically stops its rising at the end of the stroke and hinders its start up when the corresponding door is closed.
