Lift for modified van

- facilitates transfer to and from the car for people with disabilities

Description
The floor of the car has been lowered. The user enters through the side door, which is equipped with a lift plate. The door and the lift operate with buttons that are accessible from both inside and outside the car.

Authors comments
The user wants as little extra equipment as possible. He chose not to operate the side door and lift by remote control because remotes can easily break.
