Wheelchair Winch Assist

Wheelchair Winch Assist Compact & Rapide

Loading a wheelchair into a car can be a difficult procedure, that's why we developed the Winch Assist.

The Winch Assist is intended to assist a carer with the safe loading and unloading of a single occupancy wheelchair to a suitably modified vehicle.  For this reason, it is supplied only to specialist vehicle converters.  Two models are available.

The Rapide incorporates a solenoid operated clutch release to enable rapid free wheel deployment of the 4 metre belt.

The Compact model uses a powered reel in and reel out method and is supplied with a 3.5 metre belt.  It benefits from all the other features of the Rapide.

With the added benefits of optional wheelchair fittings and built in safety features, the Winch Assist offers practicality and peace of mind.  Operation should be carried out by a competent individual.

It is CE marked and has a safe working load of 225 Kg.

Both models are manufactured at the NSF Controls' premises in West Yorkshire, with the company applying it's central principles of reliability and superior quality throughout the production process.
