IQS Featured Profile: Mobile Lifts

Located in Battle Creek, Michigan, Mobile Lifts has been manufacturing high quality products to serve the physically challenged for over twenty five years. The company understands how important it is for their customers to maintain their independence no matter their circumstance; and while scooters and wheelchairs may help them get around their homes, traveling with these vehicles can prove to be a challenge. Mobile Lifts offers the freedom of complete mobility with two major product lines, the “Mobile-Lift” and the “Handi-Lift.” The “Mobile-Lift” series makes transporting most electric scooters easy and convenient and requires no disassembly of the customer’s wheelchair or 3 or 4-wheel scooter, raising and locking it into place in just 60 seconds. The “Handi-Lift” eliminates the problem of steps, and is a platform that lifts people with mobility issues from the ground to the entrance of their recreational vehicles.

Keeping Cool With Hydraulic Lifts

We recently moved into a new apartment that has proven to be quite an upgrade from what we were used to. Besides the increased space and cathedral ceilings, not to mention the open floor plan and large kitchen, it also offers a few extra amenities that caught our eye while we were on the first tour of the property. The apartment complex offers an onsite gym, a car wash station, and, my personal favorite, a large swimming pool and hot tub. I have never lived at a place with a swimming pool before, so the idea of having a relief from the sweltering heat was enticing.

I’m all for saving money and time, but if that means putting yourself in danger then I think there needs to be a serious reconsideration to one’s priorities. What this man doesn’t know could eventually end up killing him if he isn’t careful.   Continue reading
