Siruslift_THUMBA NEW ‘self-lifting’ ramp for wheelchair accessible vehicles is being launched at the Naidex exhibition at the Birmingham NEC this week.

Designer Simon Pearson believes his new product will be the answer to many carers’ problems, requiring only minimal effort and removing the need to bend down or to lift the ramp.

Simon, managing director and design engineer at wheelchair accessible vehicle manufacturer Sirus Automotive Ltd, said:

“With over 15 years experience in the design of accessible vehicles, we have worked with pneumatic, hydraulic and electrical automated systems.

“Having gained valuable feedback from our customers, we understood that many people were looking for the luxury of an automated ramp but without the price tag.

“Having worked with a team of specialist CAD engineers, the ramp provided the solution – an innovative design which ensures minimal effort, ease of use, excellent reliability and quality at an affordable price.”

The first Sirus car to see the ground breaking technology is the newly designed ‘wheelchair passenger up front’ vehicle, which is based on the Citroen Berlingo.

The Sirus ramp gives the user many of the benefits of a fully automated tailgate and ramp system without the cost.
Sirus plans to roll out the patented new ramp technology onto a range of wheelchair accessible vehicles during the year.

The company has also launched a WAV finance package, which can be used to fund all of Sirus’ converted cars and adaptations.

They can also help people who do not qualify for the Motability Scheme, and those up to the age of 75, with the added benefit of owning your car at the end of the term. Finance is available to fund new, Approved Used and Motability Advance Payments.

Using the finance package, Sirus’ new Fiat Qubo Go conversion can be owned from £245 per month. The fuel-efficient vehicle can accommodate three passengers plus one wheelchair user, or provides ample space to transport a scoter or wheelchair.
