While it is extremely easy for a regular individual to use the public transport system, it can be quite impossible for those who are handicapped. Although some busses now feature systems designed to facilitate the access of those who are in wheelchairs, there are individuals who have much more serious problems that require constant care and attention.

In order to cater to the needs of this particular group of people, a new lift transport service that focuses on transporting individuals with serious medical has appeared. Several companies across the country have taken it upon themselves to do whatever they can in order to give physically disabled individuals the power to travel back.

This type is essentially a transport service that hires medical personnel in order to allow individuals with certain medical needs to travel between their home and a clinic, a recreational space, a legal institution, etc.

Equipped for the worst-case scenarios

These companies traditionally hire people with medical expertise in a variety of areas, as well as nurses in order to travel with clients that require constant attention. From the point of view of the equipment, they have professional medical equipment that you would normally see in a hospital.

In terms of who can use the service, it largely depends on the company. Some will only transport individuals that are in wheelchairs or who cannot move at all, while others may even agree to move an individual that must be kept on life-support, as long as he is stable.

The prices for these services vary from one company to another and are usually dictated by the amount of equipment needed in order to transport the client, as well as the length of the trip.
